Stock Reg--OK Wasn't high flow enough
AA Vigilante- work great. Didn't like how the grip feel. Due to the inline for the tank is high on the regulator
Smart Parts horz max-flo - work great too. The reg is too bulky and heavy
BM2k s/n 7905
Sonic Grip, Sonic ASA, 2003 Gladiator Regulator, 2003 LPR
Vapor Valve, Vapor Bolt
Tantrum Chaos Max Chip, Tantrum skull pin
X-board Rev with RPM evil paddle
10' freak barrel
12' J&J ceramic barrel
Cross-fire 68/4500 srew in tank
in-line is at the bottom of the reg
Doesn't preform well when dirty. Have to keep cleaning it.
I have the 2003 model of the Gladiator ($85). Some of the problems was fixed that the previous reg had (hard to clean, adjustment screw to sensitive). The new model has a new look with some cool milling done to it. It comes with an extra seat in the package, which is great because I had to use it this weekend. When this reg is clean and lube it is the highest flowing and consistency reg on the market. With my setup I get +/- 3 fps on the chrono,and I am running about 190psi to get 285 psi. Also with the inline from the tank at the bottom of the regulator, it makes a nice solid and steady grip to hold onto.
Ok for the bad. THIS THING HATES DIRT!!! So if you throw your gun on the ground often YOU might have problems! I play every Saturday and Sunday, and I clean and re-lube my reg once a month. Also I would recommend using a high flow tank to keep up with the reg, because before I got my crossfire tank I had a ACI Bulldog tank. With the bulldog I was getting drop-off when firing long strings of paint.
I would recommend this reg to anybody who has a low pressure gun (400psi or below).
I have had any major problems with this reg. I would only suggest that you keep it clean and lube. Then you should not have problems
