Bottomline Regulators

I'm looking into making my Tippmann Sierra One low (lower) pressure, it has been modded for lower pressure (just no volumizer and valve). Just wanted to know what bottomline regs are out there that are female asa or 1/8 npt input, reliable, consistent, are fairly small and lightweight, and still have seals available for them, or use common seals
(P.S. I do know of the female stab.)

The Tippmann Proline regulator comes to mind for me. As to how good they are or common seals I can't remember off the top of my head. I have one in my toolbox (I think) but haven't actually used one for over 10 years.

Those at lprs, they only regulate down below like 150 to drive a pneumatic solenoid. They sucked in that application; only people who use them now are running pneu-mags or something.

Are you running remote? If so, you can run a stabilizer, either an inline or female, off your tank and keep it off the gun. Beyond that, your options are basically stabilizers or the spyder ASA regs. I guess PMI made one, the Thor reg I think? Super heavy though.

Yes I am running remote, but I will be using it on other non low pressure guns. What about the air America bottom lines? Maxflows? Did those guys ever make something like I am describing?

Ah yeah, I forgot about Max-flo's. I don't know what their output range is, or whether a 98 based gun will operate within said range, but they did make a bottomline reg. It's huge, though.

The MaxFlo reg itself is somewhat large, but it's not as big as everyone makes it out to be.

The manifold commonly used to mount the MaxFlo is what makes up almost half the bulk, and that can be gotten rid of pretty easily. Just mount the MaxFlo to an on-off ASA with a 1/8" NPT pipe nipple.

MaxFlos most commonly come in the under-250psi flavor - there are high pressure MaxFlos out there, but they're hard to find. I have a high pressure one on my Rainmaker, and a under-barrel mounted low pressure MaxFlo on my Shocker. They're great regs, only use orings instead of proprietary reg seats, are very reliable, and other than greasing them once in a while, nearly maintenance free. They'll take CO2 or HPA equally well.

Centerflag Doolie was another. Keeping one in my parts collection, but don't know how good they ever were. The Proline and Thor never had glowing reviews, either.

The only bottomline reg that's worth a damn might be the Empire Relay. With a little machining, it can be run on a non-gas-thru marker. On/off too!

PPS female stabilizer reg with bottomline mount is another option.

Female stab is the best option by a big margin
