Need to regulate air

I have to keep this at a constant 50 PSI:


So I can use this:


What I'm asking here is what is a decent reg to use. I have contacted several people here about a max flow and PMI thor reg. Will these work?
I'll be using both CO2 and HPA. I'm getting tired of having to fill with 50 psi every time I make a nade. So help and reg recommendations are needed and appreciated. I'll be using a remote to machine.
Later,
Blackrain

Steve I would say your best and safest bet would be a Stab with an lp kit. Your not going to find anything better. But if you have a thor on hand. Take it apart and remove the washer behind the spring to make it lp. It should work fine for a good while.

How about a Rock/lpr? They are made to work consistently at less than 100psi. Just drill and tap a 1/8"NPT plug for a barb.

Might be your cheapest remedy.

Good luck!

Call Palmers... they have those keg systems which run at a low pressure. If you are doing a stab/rock combo you might as well look into a single reg that they might be able to make for you.

Do you have a shop air compressor to hook it to or are you using Co2 all the time?

I have a compressor. My problem that I have is I need it steady pressure. So when I fill,it just pops back to 50 psi be it with cos or HPA. I've been doing some more QC on my nades. I have found that the ones with 50 PSI work the best. That is the reccomended pressure. So a constant will be awsome and I can provide a quality product. I'll check into the KEG system.
Thanks,
Blackrain

Does your compressor have a tank? If so, fill the tank to well above the 50psi you need(mine goes to 125) and then set the output reg to the 50psi you need. You should be able to fill quite a lot before you have to wait for the tank to refill again. Air compressors with decent sized tanks are fairly inexpensive when compared to paintball regulators/air systems and would be the best solution IMHO.

I just ordered the Palmer keg reg. Talked to Lori. Said it would fit my needs. Man I'm spending way to much with freebies and regs lol. Hopefully this will all turn out fine. My wife is about ready to kill me lol. Thanks for all the help.
Later,
