Ok well, I had pretty much a stock Compact 2000 and really wanted to get a bottom line set up. I didn't want just a plain old bottom line kit, I wanted a regulator as well and I had a very slim budget. I was looking around on e-bay and saw this kit, 35 bucks! Heck, why not?? There are 2 color kits you can get, black or chrome, I got the chrome one which comes with a chrome foregrip, chrome regulator/asa, mini guage, and a macro line kit (fittings and a hose). Great ay! Exactly what I was looking for. Well, not so great, but don't get me wrong, it works great for a bottom line if you don't already have one. Ok, well first bad thing, the regulator itself... Supposed to regulate how much gas that goes into your gun, right? Not with this lol. There is a little allen wrench screw next to the guage which "supposedly" changes the pressure, wrong, it does nothing, all the regulator is good for is the asa, thats it, oh and I guess the guage looks kinda cool. The next problem I had has nothing to do with the regulator itself, but the macro line fittings. I guess the compacts don't go good with this setup. I can't really explain it in words but, how the regulator and foregrip are placed put alot of stress on my 90* fitting which caused leaks, which really really made me mad. Again, I can't explain it in words, but to sum it up, the kit DOES fit, but in a really awkward way in my opinion.
Other than the bad, it comes with a nice chrome foregrip (1stage x-chamber) it also comes with a macro line kit which can be used later on. And also a cool mini guage which does work great. To REALLY sum it all up, I'de say if you want a foregrip/bottom line set up, get this, it's dirt cheap (Well not the MSRP price, which is $60.00, I got mine on e-bay for $35.00) and comes with everything you need. But if you really want a regulator that works, don't get this, because it doesn't work! Like I said before, this kit is practicaly a bottom line kit with a foregrip, thats it.
Dirt cheap on e-bay. Buy one if you just wanna try it, but don't expect anything spectacular, because it isn't, and don't buy it if you really want a good regulator, because this does not regulate well at all.
I give it a 5 due to the cheap price, but I also give it a 5 due to the poor poor regulator it has, all it's good for is an asa.

Its a reg! and IT WORKS GREAT
If you know what you are doing unlike the last reveiwer this is a great product. You can take your pressure from whatever it is inside of your tank to 300-500. This greatly reduces co2 used and even more so GREATLY reduces the noise. As far as a "1 stage expansion chamber" umm well... I will let you decide... It is called a gas thru. Not exp chamber. I don't actually use the gas thru I bought a x-chamber off my friend. This product allows you to have both an x-chamber and a reg on the same gun. I am 100% satisfied with this product. Just remember when you adjust the psi down you must shoot the gun and let the excess air out.
Buy this if you want both a reg and x-chamber. That way you can get the reg on the bottomline and x-chamber as your handle.
