Yeah, a Torpedo will work, and work decently well for a long time, but by far the two regulators I have loved are my old school Sidewinder (the one that doesn't look like a bong) and my Palmer's. I sold my Palmer's long ago as I don't use CO2 at all anymore, and still miss it. The Sidewinder is HPA only as far as I'm concerned. You can always keep the regulator for other markers, and Palmer's hold their value pretty well due to their reputation and quality.

Try looking on the used market, a Palmer's should be around $70-80 shipped to your door. They're near indestructible, so I wouldn't think twice about buying one used VS new except if it looked like it had been hit by a freight train.

One more question before I venture out and find one. Is there a difference between the fatty stabilizer and the regular one?

You're welcome! That's what I hoped for when I wrote them...

No, I don't use a reg on the pump I built. That's just a gas through actually, haha! But I did use the Torp on it before I changed it....

Guess what I got?!

The gauge on it only goes up to 500psi. So I'm assuming this one is setup for low pressure. Is there any way for me to tell if it's setup for low pressure or vice versa?

500psi straight on will burst a ball like noone's business, so it will be perfectly fine. As a matter of fact, a paintball with optimum efficiency should reach 300fps off of a little less than 150psi hitting it. We found that out on a NecroRam project for an Intimidator, but the physics and math are mostly still the same for other markers.

With a proper spring kit, polished/lightened internals, and a good flowing valve (since you're going pump that's in the bag), I would hazard a guess you will be fine off 400psi. My Sniper is less since its a Cocker, but you can make a Spyder run just as low with enough fiddling and determination.
