I've had these on all of the Timmy's I've owned and they are decent regulators. Definitely not top of the line but they are cheap and easy to use. I never bothered going through and cleaning them/changing o-rings so that probably led to any problems that I had. I would recommend them if it comes on your gun but if you have a choice or want something better I would look elsewhere.

This was the first inline regulator I ever used.

It worked on my low end fine, and I would say it would be good on most markers. Fairly consistent, but a pain to clean and strip.

The inlet positions are on the top of the reg by the outlet tube. I really don't like it here. It also doesn't swivel, so you're kind of screwed if its somewhere you don't want.

Doesn't come with a gauge, but has a 1/8 port for one (2 interchangeable ports for inlet/gauge.

the torpedo reg is a nice reg to have on your gun. i however, noticed that even when broken in, i was still seeing shot differentials of +-20 FPS. it wasnt that bad, just when you are chrono-ing, and you get that one shot over 300, they ask you to turn it down, then you get 285, 260, etc.

Bob Long Technologies Torpedo These regs are my favorite stock reg. I'd use one of these over a CP reg, honestly. They're easy to maintain, and work well. Consistency is OK.

Got this back when i had my first gun, a spyder e99. It was an ok gun but obviously could use some ups for consistency & smoother performance.

The Torpedo (combined with internal upgrades that lowered the operating pressure) made the spyder a really nice blowback. Gave the gun some much-needed consistency, the reg worked really well for it. Luckily, the input port lined up pretty well when the reg was on the gun.

Ive had several Torpedo regulators since I began playing. Not a single one has ever been on an Intimidator. I had one on my LED Matrix that allowed for fairly average consistency, but was nothing really special. I just bought it because it was cheap and easy to adjust. I have another Torpedo on the way to me as this is being typed. I plan to sell it as soon as I find another regulator to replace it. Theyre cheap and they work, but theyre not the best.

Cons: fitting location
I bought this reg years ago and it is still going strong. It's been on 3 different guns now. My biggest issue is with the location of the fittings. Most of the time you don't need an inlet gauge and air inlet. So one fitting would have been fine and the inlet is at the top of the reg which means you thread in the reg and then get to deal with where ever it lines up. I got some shims to put under the reg so I could tighten it down and clear the trigger guard. On a bigger gun it might not be a big deal, but on a compact gun you might not be able to tighten down the reg and have the inlets clear the trigger guard. The inlet would do much better if it was on the bottom of the reg. If you find one of these regs, don't hesitate to buy it, but keep in mind where the fittings are.
