Easiest regs to rebuild

Of the regs out there that you can buy new, which ones are the easiest to rebuild? I know stabs are pretty easy because everything falls out the bottom, but they're a little long to me. Is the fatty the same? I read that AKA 2-liters are loctite'd together, so you can only rebuild half of it?

I have a WGP black magic reg on my pumped orracle now. It looks great, but it's not as consistent as I'd like. I think a rebuild would help, but I've yet to find a good way to get these open without scratching up the anno. They just don't give you much to hold onto on the top hat. I wish everyone would mill them so that you could put a hex into the top.

The v3 cp and eclipse is very easy

Pretty much tool less. Both hand tighten and loosen

Vote for aka sidewinder. They basically never need a rebuild, and if you need one it's very easy. I have em on five different guns I use often and only ever done a rebuild on one of them from heavy co2 usage causing some pressure creep after a couple years.

Azodin stock regs are stupid-easy to rebuild. The only problem is that you tend to have to do it a lot.

Now i miss by torpedoes. They were indeed easy to service. But HATED the fitting placement. Maybe that's why i got rid of them.

Looks like the torpedo is the way to go. Nice that it's cheaper than AKA or Palmers regs, plus it comes in different colors..

What didn't you like about the placement? Just wondering if the 360 still has the same issue.
