Palmers 12g Cart regulator and AKA Sidewinder valve?

So I have read that in order to use CO2 on a sidewinder you need to keep liquid CO2 out of the regulator by using a secondary regulator. If I were to run 12g cartridges into a palmers cartridge reg and then into an aka sidewinder built into the valve of my phantom would that be sufficient? Or would I need space for gas expansion somewhere along the line? Any thoughts on how this would perform?

I bet that would work out, personally I would just use a vertical 12 gram to main reg and try to find some way of restricting the liquid without another regulator... since using two regulators means less head pressure for the main reg (the AKA), so you won't get quite as good pressure/velocity performance at the end of the cartridge, even if it's tuned perfectly (and sweetspotting two regs in series, with a 12 gram to power em... gonna be tricky, even for me). you should get good shot counts once tuned nicely.

also, using liquid bulk co2 in a sidewinder is not the same as running a 12 gram... 12 grams are much lower volume and the liquid isn't a huge issue overall.

Hm, well I'd rather run the 12g right into the sidewinder as that would save me a nice pile of money on the cart reg and modification of the DSP frame. As long as liquid in 12ies is a non issue that should work fine, the cartridge will be in a vertical position.

edit: I suppose I'll just try the 12ie right into the sidewinder and see what happens :P

How are you rigging them up? The position of the parts will affect liquid draw.
