Default Exspansion chamber/regulator

Yeah, its me again. lol. I'm sure you guys are getting sick of me by now. Anyways, I use CO2 on my Xtra, and I read that it would be a good idea to get an expansion chamber to allow the CO2 to turn from liquid to gas, but I've also read a regulator is useful. Are my choices one or the other, or can I use both? And either way, can someone make suggestions on wich brands/models to get?

can't use both, unless you use a regulator for the ASA ... but it's crap IMO .. just get an inline regulator like the torp .. beats the expansion chamber by a lot

It seems like every one I've looked at doesn't get along with CO2, including what I read about the torpedo you mentioned. could anyone recommend a CO2 friendly regulator?

imho, having a regulator on a high-pressure setup doesn't serve much purpose. Your money is better spent on a sized barrel system (like the Freak or Freak Jr.) and having an anti-siphon tube installed on your co2 cylinder. Have a Smart Parts on/off swithc installed along with the anti-siphon tube (actually makes the installation of the anti-siphon tube easier).

imho, regulators are only useful if you eventually plan to go to a low pressure setup.

Who said you couldn't use an expansion chamber with air?

Its pointless to have one though... It doesn't do anything if you've got air, only restricts airflow.
