Arrow Regulator Suggestions/Direction

Can you guys/gals point me in the right direction for a good regulator for a Pilot ACS. I run CO2 for now. I would like one that has a gauge on it. Thanks!

I found this but don't know if it fits a Pilot and/or if it is good at all.

LOL!

Ok, ok, now I think I got myself confused. Where is the regulator? I know you have the LPC which is horizontal right below the barrel. That goes into the V/A. The coming out of the V/A is the expansion chamber. Ok, am I on the right path here? Then the regulator sits where? At the bottom of the dropdown where the CO2 Canister plugs in? Correct me if I'm wrong please. I want to know these things. Thanks!

The reg replaces the Expansion chamber. The ASA is where you screw in your CO2

edit: i see where your confused, the reg you posted is a crappy kingman designed one, stray away from it. In almost all cases the Reg is replacing your expansion chamber (which really does nothing)

If you want a good quality cheaply priced regulator, this is where you should go,
Empire Reg
Not quite sure why the blue one here is half the price of the black one, but $34 for a reg with such good reviews is a steal. Just thought I would spread the word of this find.

Check out my picture of my camo pilot in link below, swapped out the V/A so you can mount a regulator, otherwise you are unable to use a regulator except a kingman one, used a V/A off a different spyder which has threads, that the regulator screws into, unlike the pilot expansion chamber setup where it attaches with setscrews and pulls off - if ya need help PM me

Sparky GT, I love your setup. About where I want to go with mine. Where did you get that sweet dropdown with the gauge on it?

Also, can't I just go with this (link below) which looks to me like it will replace the LPC and the V/A and then get a nice aftermarket regulator that will fit into this??

hmm.. i'd havta say the boblong torpedo .. or the palmers stabilizer ...

And sparky's right .. the VA's on the new pilots are strange.. it's held by two allen wrenches ... and the gasthrough's just hollow ... super weird ...

I'll show you mine if i have a chance sometimes ... right now = laziness ...

EDIT: ... Slammed, that VA will work ... but that's the oldstyle trinity .. the newstyle trinity has higher flow closer to the assault block ...

ASSAULT BLOCK


The newer style looks just like the assault block, but it's tilted back 10 degrees rather then up 15 ... in a rush ... gotta do something now

It's actually 7 degrees back, but thats just being technical. I'd go with the assualt block, just because the 7 degree back angle would seem uncomfortable to me, as compared with a front slanting 15 degrees.
