In my opinion, no reg is better for CO2 than a palmers stabilizer. I've used a lot of different regulators, but when it comes to CO2, I will always swear by a Stabilizer.

For the kind of pressure you are looking at the best reg would be the Palmer Fatty Stabilizer. You might be able to find something if you look outside of the paintball industry, but I highly doubt you will find something to match up with your needs.

Just curious what is the application for the regulator?

well maybe u dont like this!but only usefull information i can find for that stuff is from pb forums!
i want to make a co2 rig for an airsoft sniper gun so i dont care about recharge time that much since it will be a bolt action gun and u ve to cock it every single shot by hand,so recharge time should be enough for any paintball reg i think.
i ve seen palmers but they r out of my budget!
im looking for something that u can find on ebay or in pb classifieds used(so i dont have to shoot for "breaking" a new reg cause of what i ve read in paintball forums for some regs maybe is needed over 1000 shots).
so i dont care much about recharge time but mostly for consistency around 100psi with co2,which i plan to have from 12g caps adaptor.
so any suggestions are well apreciated!

I have heard that the early stock WGP regulators also held up pretty well to CO2. The biggest concern is that CO2 is a little harder on the internals of a regulator due to the freezing that occurs especially if you are shooting at a high rate of fire and pull liquid up into the reg. Palmers is the best at handling this, but for a bolt action setup, you could get away with one of the others. For a cheaper setup, I would make sure you use an anti-siphon tube in the CO2 tank to prevent liquid from being set up. Then, use one of the older WGP regs. An expansion chamber could be used but that would probably be overkill for your application. So an antisiphoned tank and an older WGP reg that came on the autocockers back in the day should take care of you and be pretty inexpensive.

Keep checking online. Sometimes you can find a good deal on a Palmer's regulator. For your application you might be able to get away with another regulator. Like stated earlier look into a stock WGP Autococker reg. I wouldn't worry about putting an expansion chamber in your set up. If you do decide to do so make sure you install it between the air source and the regulator.

You can get a steely 3k ninja tank and a budget HPA regulator for about what a new Stab will cost you...and probably get better performance...
