Quick question about stabalizers

I have and ion and plan to to use anti-siphoned co2 on it most of the time but occasionally us hpa which stabalizer would be the best one for me (regular male, regular female, or fatty)? The fatty seems like what i want because the ion is a low pressure gun, it costs less than the regular ones, and also i believe it comes with a gauge which i wanted and i dont think the regular one does. Am i right that the fatty is the stabalizer for me? thanks

its a toss up

personally i would get the basic stab. with a LP kit, it operates just like the fatty and if you ever need to switch to hp operation, its a quick 30 second job. good luck

both come with a guage, personally I like the stabs and lp springs, but honestly a regular stab will do everything you want for an ion even with a hp stab will be consistant at your operating pressure , match it with your a/s tank and your all good. As far as female or male all personal choice, I like the females with a nice gas thru, but its personal preference.

^I couldn't disagree more with those guys, get the Fatty. It is cheaper, can also run co2, has a higher flow, and comes with a guage...and it looks cooler.

So would a male stabalizer like this one
https://palmer-pursuit.com/ecom/prod...75e7ed2b37f7e6
with nothing added on (lp kit) do every thing i want:
1. Fit on an ion
2. work with my anti-siphon to protect my gun from liquid co2
3. come with a gauge
4. i will be able to use co2 or n2 with it

Why are you concerned about the gauge...your Ion has one already. I have a Stabilizer on my Ion and another gauge would just get in the way and look funny.

Fatty is your ticket to peace of mind with the ION, no matter what gas you choose on any given day.

Hey, i've got a A-5 and i'm thinking about getting the male because i only use co2. Do you need a gauge? and what does the gauge do?

Also is a anti-siphon needed or is it a waste.

A pressure "gauge" monitors the actual pressure of the gas going into the gun. IMHO, the only "gauge" you need to set up your equipment is the chronograph.

Anti-siphon is always best for good consistency. Especially when you get busy on the trigger.

Anti-siphon keeps liquid Co2 from entering the marker. If you've ever shot fast enough to freeze your marker you've had liquid Co2 in there. Liquid Co2 can cause drops in velocity and damage internal seals.

Liquid Co2 is contained in your tank.
When you fill a tank a certain percentage of the Co2 is liquid. As the tank empties the liquid converts to Co2 gas.

Without an anti-siphon liquid co2 can enter the marker before it turns to gas.

Every gas can have different forms at different temperatures/pressures. Gas, liquid, solid. Inside a Co2 tank you get gas and liquid Co2.

An anti-syphon must be installed by a professional. It is a modification that is done to an existing Co2 tank. They'll need the gun it's being fitted to as well. Check with your local proshop for prices.

most anti-syphons sell for under ten dollars. Plus install.
