I am not new to paintball, but I have been so comfortable with my tanks as is, but its that time for rebuilding/servicing them and I have an Empire tank and another Carbon fiber, Java (Kingman) I believe, the regulator on the java tank is crap,(Leaked from fill nipple, replaced it, started leak from bonnet next day.) Im tossing it, but my Empire tank has a Custom Products Regulator but its due for a rebuild. They are both 4500 HP tanks, and Im planning on rebuilding the CP regulator and putting it on the Java tank (still in hydro. That leaves my Empire Tank regulator-less. My question is:
What is a good and affordable regulator for my 48/4500 Empire Tank? I never adjust the pressures on my tank. (all my markers are hp).
Thats what I was thinking. But Whats the big difference lets say the Cheaper $35 ninja reg compared to $50+? just adjusting? Recharge?
the lower priced reg is still adjustable in output pressure, meaning you can tailor the output pressure to whatever you decide to shoot. Our more expensive regulators will come with features like TWIST Technology, which allows you to rotate the regulator and re-position your gauge and fill nipple exactly where you want. Here is a video on the TWIST Technology:
On the Java tank I would try and remove the reg first before you order a new one. Last time I took a factory reg off a Java tank they had used thread sealer. The sealer basically destroyed the reg while taking it out and screwed up the threads in the tank. Tank was worthless after that
As far as efficiency and pressure output, is there a difference between the regular reg and the pro reg? Im on the market for a new tank and Ninja is the one I decided to buy, I'm a rec player and don't know what I should buy.
