hahaha im uber noob to paintball and am gonna go buy my first gun today...pretty much have my mind set on a spyder sonix 2007, or if i dont get that...im getting a spyder mr1. i will prolly play with co2 because i dont want to break the bank on a massive hpa tank. does a regulator do anything for co2? btw what exactly does a regulator do? (ive read that for co2, an expansion chamber is good...and i think my sonix comes w/ it stock) if a regulator is any good for my gun...does anyone know a decent one that won't burn a hole in my wallet? thanks guys for putting up with my n00b-ness

A regulator Regulates the air that goes into the gun.

If you get this before you buy a gun, id suggest to find one online used because simply spyder resale isnt very good, and you could pick up a good gun for very cheap.

If you plan to use a regulator you will need an adapter.
Click a link in my sig that says Ultimate Resource Thread for ideas and prices on some regulators!

Also, if you ever need a quick answer feel free to PM me or to IM me.

the only reg that works good on co2 is the palmer stabilizer series.

not true, a bob long torpedo will handle CO2 with ease as long as you have an anti siphon
