BKO stock reg - CP is like a million times better :)
Black 2k3 BKO (diamond milled) with a 2k2 trigger frame
Pure Energy 68/3000 HPA
12vt Revolution w/ Vortex
Full freak system with stainless steel back
seems very well constructed
lots of colors
some dont like the looks of it, but it looks great on my bko
A few weeks ago I decided it was time to move on from my stock BKO reg and get something better. I asked Travis about the Dye Hyper reg and the sidewinder, and he said they were both good regs, but that the new CP reg actually kept up and surpassed both of them in some key areas. I decided to get the reg and the bottom extender piece for about an extra $7
I decided to give it a shot, the price is right for about $60, and even though I was skeptical when I tested it I was in awe. The reg preformed simply amazing. I took it out of the box and unscrewed it to have a look inside, everything looked thoughtfully put together and well lubed. I hooked up my hpa and started increasing the pressure...the gauge creeped up with NO sticking as my stock reg had done so frequently. The first shot came out fine so I decided to do a rapid fire shoot of about 20-30 paintballs...there was NO visible shootdown and it seemed to have a really good recharge rate.
the reg also comes with a 5 YEAR WARRANTY in the box.
if you're in the market for a new regulator the new CP reg should definately be amonst the top of your list. Its alot cheeper than most of the new regs out today, looks very well constructed, and can easily outperform a number of competitors. It also comes with a 5 year warranty to boot. Great work CP! I'm glad I bought this reg and saved money over something like a dye or sidewinder.
I think travis put it best when he said "the preformance of a sidewinder at the cost of a torpedo"
10 out of 10

Without any LP mods, you don't really need an inline regulator on your Xtra. Your Spyder Xtra can run straight off the air system regulator with no problems at all. If you added an inline regulator without reducing the operating pressure of the marker, the inline would just be acting as a gas through foregrip, and would most likely restrict the flow rate to the marker.
Yes, the maximum output with the standard piston is 500psi. I believe the high pressure piston allows for 650psi.
The output pressure of the LP Crossfire is approximately 450psi, yes. Obviously, this would not allow you to obtain a 500psi output from the regulator, but would allow you to set a pressure below 200psi.
I don't actually use the CP with gauge ports, but I believe that the two lengths of the CP regulator that feature gauge ports are supplied with blanking plugs to seal the holes.
To get under 200psi output from the regulator (to match the Ion), you would need to use the LP tank, which is what I said in my last comment.
If you want 500psi output, then the LP tank would be no good, as it only gives out 450psi. The regulator cannot increase the pressure from the air system, it can only lower the pressure.
The air system has to give out around 200psi more pressure than what you want your regulator to provide, or you will run in to flow rate problems.
So, if you want 250psi or less from the inline regulator, you can use the 450psi LP air system, as it will still provide the regulator with the additional 200psi. If you want to run the regulator over 250psi, then you need to be feeding it more than 450psi. You would then need an HP tank. You aren't trying to match the output of the air system to the output of the regulator. The output of the air system has to be HIGHER, than the output of the regulator. You can only use the low pressure tank with a very low regulator output pressure.
The hose attaches at the bottom of the reg, so you can align the hose in any direction you want - this means that multiple input ports are not required, so there is only the one. The blanking plugs are required to fill the unused gauge ports, so if you buy one of the versions without gauge ports, you won't need any blanking plugs at all.
ok i have a nerve the operating pressure is 225psi if i buy the cp reg and use it with a hp tank will it be ok?? and in my nere u adjust the pressure down to change the fps in the cp reg where do i adjust the pressure ????
