regulated CO2

Hey all,

So I'm in the midst of building a regulated 12g sniper when one of my buds said I have to use an old school reg or the liquid CO2 will ruin my sidewinder.

Just want to get a second, third etc. opinion on this.

Thanks in advance

co2 will not damage your reg. i have been running co2 thru regulated guns for years with no problems.
just remember you can only regulate the expanded(gas) co2, so make sure your co2 is pitch to keep out the liquid

What kind of a reg you using?
If I have a bucket changer that is macro-lined to the reg, is that a sufficient setup to expand the cartridge?

thanks!

The only damage you could do to a regulator with CO2 is to freeze the o-rings and crack them. So at worst you would need to replace the seals.

The AKA manual says to pre-reg Co2 before the Sidewinder.

It just unscrews. The top part comes off as well as the bottom part. They are rather simple regs, just don't lose the belleville washers when you take it apart.
