The Core Co2 performance regulator is the most innovative and feature loaded Co2 Improvement System (CIS) on the market today. This setup is superior to all others on the market due to its unique 2 stage system. The first stage is the Thermal Exchange Unit. In the first stage the Co2 is converted from a liquid to a gaseous form by using a fin design to transfer heat from outside of the chamber. In the second Regulator stage you can control the operating pressure being put into your marker for pressure optimization. The Regulator is fully adjustable, and unlike other regulators on the market, the gauge measures the actual delivery pressure into the gun, not meaningless tank pressure.
The CORE CO2 Performance Regulator is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
It makes your gun very consistant. Greatly reduces ball breaks. Makes your gun look cool. Pretty easy to install. The reg is very good it stays at the pressure you set all day long. (Unless you run out of CO2)
It's heavy, it isn't like it isn't bearable but expect for your gun to wiegh a lot more. Sometimes the gauge screws in at a wierd angle. It isn't a core product it's THUNDER PIG, they make good stuff but I think it should be stated that it's all thunderpig parts instead of Core. Also it is a TASO bottomline, I got this for a Spyder Compact 2000 so I dont know if this information will be consistant with other guns.
It's a good product. It works great, looks cool, and is very well made solid constuction. I am giving it a ten even with that big paragraph of bad stuff, so you know its good! Plus I dont know what gun the guy below me has, but in my instructions it says it can use Nitro so I would suggest CAREFULLY reading the instructions before using Nitro with it.
Bruizer Outlaw with an 18" boomstick, a mako storm handle, 9v revvy, core performance CO2 reg, 20oz CO2 tank, and a dye sticky grip
well....someone that wrote a review complained about it being heavy...well if u have ever held a bruizer outlaw there is no way that a different reg can make it any heavier...well he did say he had a spyder compact so he wouldnt be used to it...but i aint dawgin him any... it works great...its an 11 stage expansion chamber and input reg all in one. the 11 stage expansion chamber takes the heat from ur hand and surrounding areas to help it convert the liquid to a stable gas. it doesnt look big enuf to be 11 stage...thats bc it has the fins to help it obsorb heat...it really works great if say u got a hand warmer inside ur gloves bc then ur 200%% guranteed to have warm..stable co2 goin into your gun thus making it just as good as nitrogen. the reg is accurate to a very good degree. the guage is very easably read and correct
only bad thing about this product is having to adjust it for the first time...gotta fire a lot of shots off...but after that its all good.
get this product if u run co2. no other product even comes close...even the boss regulators dont beat it..and everyone knows that boss regs are great. its light and it comes with adapters to fit any gun out there...i say get this if u dont want to get N2

Good idea on vaporization via the fins, CO2 is stored ina liquid state, true.
but the pressure is constsnat at 1800psi right until you go dry. Sorry but the physics dont change and niether will CO2 characteristics. I have experience with CO2, I hydrostat co2 cylinders, etc.
the pressuer guage is more suited for nitro or compressed air, then it will tell you how much TRUE pressure is going into the gun.
Go to a low air C/A or nitro, the guage on the tank will tell you how full you are.
Remember, CO2 can only be measured via a weight scale, period!
Low review score for the misinfo on the product ( pressure guage).
Works good with a low pressure setup. It is specificly designed for co2 regulation so the internals seem to hold up good against it. Works like a reg and x -chamber at the same time.
Because it is a co2 reg only, you cannot put nitro on it. The instructions state this clearly. The brass hex nut used to adjust regulation is easily stripped. Too many small allen screws that shake loose. Guage is off( they all get this way at some time or another).
Great if you're using co2 on a low pressure Spyder or similar blow back. Kills two birds with one stone in that it both expands then regulates the co2. The price is a little much considering all the other regs out there but it does work pretty good so I recommend it.
the advertising, makes you think that right out of the box you have your co2 as stable as nitro.
The Gauge- thanks for staying at 850 psi till I got three shots left. some body should have told these people about gauging co2.
Seals - I had mine professinoally installed because at the time I was still a newby. From the day I had it put on it leaked from the seal below the x-chamber.
After throwing out the x chamber part of it, I had a decent reg to attach a remote to. I would attach a tank but there is no pin inside the reg to open a pen valve. That would be a nice mod. I will admit with the reg the velocity was fairly concistent (at least for co2). I could stay right around 287 fps most of the time.
Trust me its not what you think you are getting. For 100 dollars you could get a decent nitro tank, so why would any one pay that much to make their co2 work like nitro.
Ahhhhh.... Now thats why the addvertising was so good
like someone above said- the advertising. i will never figure out how i was sucked into paying $100 for this crappy thing.
also the price- if you are into the whole "look at me with my dye barrel" thing.
the advertisement- it's false. co2 is still co2. the reg is not even a good co2 reg. i usually get +/- 20 fps, at times it is much worse. no expansion chamber will eliminate liquid from entering your gun. this piece has a good x-chamber, but co2 is still co2 and i still get liquid shooting through my internals.
the price- if you're into the whole "i like good value" thing.
for the money, it sucks big. not considering the price, it still sucks.
