View Full Version : Regulators for my Pilot
01-31-2006, 08:56 PM
Hi all, I have an electic hopper, and a J&J ceramic barrel and crossfire tank in the mail.
Now I am looking for a good regulator, any sugestions?
Also is it true you may have to do some drilling or buy another part in order to replace the stock expansion chamber?

so far have put on a torpedo regulator and changed the V/A with a stock spider unit- i opened up the passageways and drilled and tapped for a gauge. check the thread here to see pics

Thats a nice looking setup you have there.
Is it necessary to drill or replace the VA?

The stock V/A passages are way smaller than an aftermarket Check IT, i kept the stock green colour appearance by using a V/A off another spyder that happened to be green that would accept a regulator, took a bit of drilling/dremelling work, The check it blocks are also 15 degree forward tilt and come in either black or chrome, the other reason i decided to do all the work was cause i shoot left and can see the gauge, where as the check its mount a guage on the oppposite side. I HAVE A TLX with a check it V/A on it, so was able to compare both stock and aftermarket that way

Personally I wouldnt want to go through all that. ....I am a lazy lazy man.
So what setup would require the least effort and money (I am cheap as well).
Is there any regs that will fit a stock pilot?

LOL i thought i was lazy too, but i have a well equipped but messy garage, you need to get rid of the stock V/A on the pilot(need one that a co2 bottle or regulator would screw into) nothing can be done with the stock pilot one i think, for my money i would buy the Check it or a trinity, one tilts the reg forward and the other backwards towards the trigger
As for regulator some allow the air to come in through the bottom and some through the sides(Torpedo Reg).
The other thing i picked up was a spring kit and am going to mill my valve then will be done the low pressure conversion

dam man hope u dont screw anything up. i persoanally dont liker the feel of the trinity V/a(the one that tilts backward)

I have never tried how the reverse tilt trinity feels on a gun, the tilt forward-check it one is OK on my other gun
here is how the check it looks homerj

Any other products out there?

I was wondering for those of you doing low pressure set up is a custom products regulator for compressed air good enough?
Also if not cp is the torpedo good for compressed air?
Otters help recomended!

the cp is great for HPA and i think it only handles HPA great, but the torpedo takes hpa and co2 great ...

I'm fairly certain that the CP is only rated up to an output pressure of 600psi. Can someone verify for me?
Before I did any LP work, my spyder worked best at 700-750 psi, though that was with the stock valve spring, and a lighter valve spring might have done okay at 600psi.

I was wondering about these for a low pressure set up. I've read nothing but good reviews on CP reg but it "is" kind of low psi starting out. Also is the CP a Macro line only or can it be steel braid line?
Ive got a piolt acs and am keeping the acs bolt and getting a maddman valve and the dark horizons striker (if i could find it) and some of the other stuff on otters website but i am stumped at a reg. I want looks (preferably black and sleek) and performance. Oh and where the line in goes in through the bottom.
Also i read a little bit futher on otters sight and saw a air america vigilante this one looks pretty good any comments?

only macroline can be used for the cp reg because of the fitting's are different.
A good reg with a good performance is the torpedo which is black, but you can also get it in chrome .. which is usually more expensive
02-13-2006, 12:22 PM
And the torpedo has a side fitting, if i remember correctly
02-13-2006, 12:32 PM
Thanks guys!! I ll be going with the bob long
02-14-2006, 01:21 PM
huh .... the cp reg has the macroline coming through the bottom, but the torp has the macroline coming out of the side of the handle i thought ....
