Consistancy is based off of what you run the gun, bore match, and the pressure that the gun runs off of(depending on if it spikes or isnt high sometimes)

Ok, I run compressed air. Since the VS2 uns off low pressure isn't it more consistent?

it runs off a lower pressure.
No, thats just what the gun needs to operate.
The vs2 is probably more consistent because of the regulator on the gun.

Except... it's not probably, it is because of the regulator. Even with the HPA, the gun can do whatever it wants with the excess pressure that it doesn't need that it has access to (Spyders stock really only need 600psi).

Should I invest in a regulator for my MR2?

I've always said that a regulator is one of the first upgrades a spyder needs, if not the first. However, with a regulator on your HPA tank, that's somewhat covered already (it regulates to the proper pressure, but a regulator on the gun can make it more "tweakable".)

Well, lemme help you to try to understand what Vike's saying. The regulator on the HPA tank will already make the gun more consistent than with CO2 as a CO2 tank will put out anywhere between 750psi and 950psi given altitude, temperature, and humidity. The HPA tank will always put out 800-850psi (differences in manufacturers) no matter where you are or what the temperature is. Thus, the regulator on the gun becomes a "secondary" regulator. Is it needed? IMO, yes. It will make your Spyder seem like a whole new gun!

Is a stabalizer the same as a regulator? If not would you reccomend both?

The Stabalizer is a model of a regulator
Palmers makes it
