Price. will sell you a this reg on a 20oz for $40 plus shipping. Has fairly accurate gauge. Helps with shot consistency, efficiency, less recoil, and quietens the mechanical action of the gun a bit due to softer re-cock. I haven't seen any "white gas" let alone ice since installing this reg with a thermal cell X-chamber.
If you change tanks, you lose the reg. I always just refill the same tank, and with my GT2000 running a pressure balanced valve (NEO) I can always play all day on one fill. It is very efficient. If you have a large temp difference (leave gun in sun) the pressure will climb. I think everyone is making a mistake by immediately adjusting the reg. You just need to shoot a couple of shots to allow the extra pressure the heat created to clear out of the reg. Mine always settles back down after I do this. You really need to run an anti-siphon tube as pure liquid into this reg would probably not be advisable. Gauge may not line up the way you want.
A great add-on for about $15-$18 dollars more than you can get a regular 20oz. I have a friend with a 98 running a sheridan reg he paid over $70 for. We hit the chrony a couple days ago and my gun was more consistent than his. He took of his sheridan and tried running my CO2000, and his consistency went from +-20fps to +-5fps. Nice product for the cash.
I give it a 10 for value and an 8 for performance compared to expensive regs.
Average = 9
9 out of 10
