the stock ones are fine but if you'd really like to change it id recommend a CP reg or CCM reg. I've had CP/shocktech regs on all of my custom built snipers(except my ccm ss-25 had a ccm reg)

I wouldn't recommend a CCM HPR.

For the price, there are better ones out there.


The stock one is just fine.

If you want to boost the consistency a little for very cheap, consider replacing the dynamic Orings in the regulator with HNBR ones of appropriate fitment.

It'll be like $0.50

I have no idea where any of these suggestions are coming from...

The stock reg is one of the most reliable designs on the market. If you're having inconsistency issues, it's your paint and barrel.

If you're just swapping it for looks, then you should probably pick out the one that looks best to you.

I don't think you can change it without replacing the entire pump kit. I don't have a Sniper, so if this is incorrect can someone that has one please speak up.

You could certainly have a replacement made (possibly the first!) for you by a custom shop, but I suspect aftermarket ones are coming soonish.

cp regs are the most efficent and consistent regs ive ever seen. id definetly go with a cp reg if you want more efficency and more consistent velocity.
