12gram sniper build questions

Hey I want to build a stock class sniper and I was wondering if these parts would work well?

I'm mainly concerned about the valve kit. Would I be able to shoot 295 fps and get ~40 shots off a 12 gram? Would I be fine with that valve kit, half block wgp bolt, and a maddman spring kit? I plan to screw the 12 gram changer straight into the vertical asa.

Would it be worth it to run a regulator? If so, what is a good reg for co2?

I had an old square bodied Sniper done up for 12 grams with a stock older valve and I was getting close to 40 shots at 270fps with a CCI quick changer going strait into the vertical. All it took was an afternoon with a spring kit, a chrony, and a lot of patience.

Not at 295 you won't get 40 shots. I get about 30 at 275 to 280. Otherwise all the pieces you have listed are a good starting point. If you play with your springs and drop your velocity then you should be able to get close to what you are after. Look in the WGP section for ideas.

Look up snipers on Co2 discussion. Regulating 12 grams is the way to go.
