Regulators

I'm looking for input on a regulator. My intention is to mount it on a 98 with HPA.

MUST:
1. Handle high operating pressures of a 98 (800 range?)
2. Standard ASA output
3. Input at opposite end, macro

PLUS:
1. Ability to handle low pressure, so's I can mix things up
2. CO2 compatibility

For awhile I had settled on a Stabilizer, but then I saw a photo of one on a 98 and the long distance between ASAs makes it look ridiculous. Right now I have the Tippmann expansion chamber; I'd like to maintain that nice, clean routing.

I also considered a Sidewinder, but I'm not sure they can handle the high pressure needed. I didn't find a rating on the two liter Regs, either.

Suggestions?

PRE-EMPT: This is a nostalgia build. I know I can get better performance for the same price as upgrading a Tippmann. I already have a Mini. Not the point

Unless specifically stated, all hpr can handle the 800psi range. If I remember correctly hp tanks output at 850psi and that is a majority of what is used by players.

The only hpr, that I known of, that handles CO2 is a stabilizer. I would suggest a long style CP regulator (has macro fitting built in on the bottom). They are cheap, easy to work on, and are just overall great regs

Keep your expansion champer and use a female stabilizer as your asa/reg.

Take a look into the Maxflow inline as well, they can typically be found used and will handle co2/HPA.

MCB delivers! Thanks guys, all three comments were helpful. I'll reply with more detail when I get home on a real keyboard and let you know what I go with. Others, feel free to chime in with ideas or info.

This was gonna be my suggestion. If you really want to tuck it up against the grip; instead of the Palmers mount, use a low mount 1" scope ring and short picatinny/weaver rail bolted to the grip. Both the ring and a short 3 slot rail can be found at Dick's or Wal Mart.

while that is true input wise, not all secondary regs output at the 800psi that tippmanns typically operate at. Vibe/enemy regs can use co2 from what I hear, but I doubt they output at 800psi, since their guns run sub 200psi iirc.

It didn't even come me that he was talking about the output...sometimes I skim and my reading comprehension sucks when I do that

Sidewinder is also a pretty good choice.

Very few regs output above 600psi, and even fewer can handle CO2. Stab is your best bet.
