Which Stabilizer?

Ok, so there are 4 different versions of stabilizers, and I'm not sure which one to get.

I want to use it on a Sterling. I figured I'd put the reg on the back bottle asa and run a line to a 3,5 oz tank hawaiian style.

I figured I wouldn't need the sideline or female versions. However, what exactly is the difference between the inline and the male version?

I've also come across a used A5 reg kit. Would this work aswell, since it seems to be either the inline or male + a steel line?

Male has an ASA as it's output
Inline has a 1/8NPT as it's output

Ah, ok.

And how about an A5 kit? Is it just a male one with a steel line?


And Hobbes, I like yours, but I don't think a female would work on mine.

Also, did you cut off the top of the pump grip to make that freak fit, or did it come like that?

I cut it so it would work with the freak, and because I prefer undercocking and this is as close as it's going to get for that.

Inline---- Output on the side ----------Input on the top

Male---- Output on the side and top ----------Input on the opposite side of input.....

A5 Male kit Same as above only with a high pressure spring, hose and elbow


Female---- Same as an inline only with CO2 bottle threads.

Direct---- Same as the male with 1/8 NPT output and input.. This the opposite of the inline.

Most of the internal parts are interchangeable between the regs.

Thanks for the discription!

What is a "high pressure spring" though? And would the A5 kit work on a Sterling?

It's a stiffer main spring that will allow you to ajust the pressure well over 800 psi.

Its more or less for Tippmanns and older JABBs.

For a sterling id go with a female stabilizer and run the line up to an ASA adapter on the back bottle of the sterling.

If you put a male stab right into the back bottle and run a line from that..your going to have the regulator hitting you in the mask when you get close to the gun.

A normal sprung female stab and a ring mount, and an ASA adapter will give you a really perfect setup.
