Palmer's Fatty reg question

I am pondering a project. I want a very short Reg to sort out Co2 before a Mag reg.

I am trying for a very compact AutoMag and I want to run a Reg in the vertical ASA adapter but am short of vertical space. Would it be ok to run a Palmers Fatty straight from a Co2 tank (either 7 or 9 oz)? Would the output then be enough to power a Mag reg?

I have had good luck with Co2 and either a Palmers’ stabilizer or Cocker reg, but will the Fatty be ok? I see it labeled as a “low pressure” reg. could it be converted to high pressure?

Are there any other Co2 compatible short regs that might work?

Any help would be appreciated.

Palmers makes a sidesaddle reg designed specifically to go on a mag. If you're buying straight out, you would be better off to go with the sidesaddle Stabilizer.

I see the "Side-Line" Stab on the Palmer's page now. I don't know how I missed that before. Not exactly how I planned it, but it would work. Robertsr, do you have one mounted on any of your herd?

Nope, I don't. However I've seen it on one or two mags in the field. Seems to be nice and compact. I would suspect that it would give you optimal CO2 performance provided the weather was warm enough.

I'm going to try an R-2000 reg first. Nothing like wasting a little money before doing the right thing.

I want something more vertical than horizontal. I read a lot of reviews and it seems they run good on Co2 but if the pressure is turned down they have a slow recharge rate. They either run good on a lot of oil or too much oil makes them slow.

I guess I will have to expirement with that one.

Good luck. I've had wildly inconsistent luck with the r-2000's.

Another thing you might look into is the Custom Products regs. They have a small version that was really well regarded when it came out. It's a sort of performance comprimise between the Stabe and the R-2000.
