Maximum input(psi): 900
Output range(psi): 200-600
Gas type: N2/HPA or CO2
Does not come with it's own gauge, the gauge measures output psi. Gauge should be mounted on side where the spring can not be seen. Threading is 1/8" female and is a ASA vertical. Comes in Nickel or Black. Nickel usually costs more.
The Bob Long Torpedo Regulator is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Easy to clean/disassemble
None really...there are better regs out there, but not for the price.
I used the Torpedo on my Timmy, on which it comes stock. It's a great reg; no shootdown/consistency issues, and gets even better after the break-in period, as with every reg. It's very easy to adjust, and as easy to disassemble and clean/rebuild.
There are only a few gripes I might have; namely, the output fitting is on the side, which makes it more uncomfortable than, say, a CP reg or a Sidewinder that has the fitting on the bottom...w/e. At least it's not as atrociously uncomfortable as the WGP Ergo reg, which is designed to be comfortable but ironically has the worst hose placement ever, and gets even worse when using a gauge.
Also on the Torpedo, you can only put the hose on one of the output holes, so that might pose a placement problem...but it should work with most guns.
A great affordable omnigas reg...there's a reason it comes stock on Timmies; it's one of the best.
* Very cool looking
* Easily strippable
* Very consistent ( even with c02)
I have yet to find any.
The BL Torp. reg is an awsome reg for anyone who would want a cheap reg that works great with c02/ n2. My first few shots wit this reg were: 284-287 and it wasnt broken in yet. It usually takes I figure about 3000 shots to fully break it in. The lightning milling on this reg. is very cool looking. It is recommended that you lube the o-ring inside the reg before you use it so you'll need to know how to take it apart. Pretty simple, there's a place in the middle of the reg where it can separate in two. Inside, you should find an o-ring on the piston, lube this o-ring with some Dow 33 and then put the reg back together. If you need to adjust this reg, turning the screw at the bottom clockwise will result in a higher velocity and turning it counter- clockwise will result in a lower velocity.
This reg. is very good. Its a nice, cheap and consistent reg. Other alternatives would be, Palmer Stab., CP reg, Sidewinder, etc..

New non-coded springs arent as good as the old orange ones
I first bought one for my intimidator, then bought another one for my spyder. The intimidator one worked fine, but the spyder one didnt. It would creep and my velocity would be pretty screwy. Turns out that the bad one had a silver spring and the good one had orange. I called up blast and they sent me a new spring immediatly. Now I have 2 perfect torpedo regs. They take both HPA and CO2, which is perfect for my spyder(although I would recomend a/sing your CO2, especially if youre using any reg).
Definately worth the money, but only get it if your marker runs under 600 psi.
This is a great reg for co2, and its only 55$, i admit its no palmer but its pretty good. I get +6/-6 and its not broken in. The reg looks damn sexy, but its really small in person, Its hard to get a good grip on it because its so small. Also, the input hole points outward for my spyder, so i have to grab the macro line when i hole the grip. oh well, also, the milling seems pretty strong to me.
This reg came stock on my timmy and its not very consistant, the first show is always 10+fps and everyother about 5fps. For good performance 5fps is still too much but it does keep up at 20 bps. Its easy to adjust, easy to put on a gauge and easy to clean.
The consistantcy can be as much as 20fps which is huge, one shot I had at 283,next was 303.
Excluding the first shot the reg is rather consistant but their are better one's out their such as the gladiator and maxflow.

Regulator quality inconsistent
Within a week of purchase, the reg on my Dark Intimidator developed a groove causing it to break down. The same thing happened to my brother's Lasoya. Additionally, the regulator changes speed during play, +/- 1oo feet per second. The store i brought it from was willing to repair or replace it, but i was not willing to go back every day so i decided to buy a different reg.
If you are in the market for a regulator, don't buy this one.
Easy to maintain
Aside from no manual, none.
For the price (around $60 new) this reg is awsome. They can be picked up used as low as $30. For that price one cannot go wrong with purchasing it. It is just as consistent as any reg out there it has 2 spots to put a gauge/plug and its not that big in size. As for cleaning it, in unscrews into 2 pieces and its fairly self explanitory from there. Also another benefit is that this reg has no problems using CO2 like some other regs may have, and that is always a plus. When I was at the chronograph the reg kept a good +/- 4fps in different so that was quite impressive.
Consistent, cheap price, easy to maintain and with the Bob Long name, it is a quality product. I'd reccommend this reg to anyone who is in the market for one.

Smart Parts Max-Flo - better (depends on how well maintained)
CP Reg - better
I did have:
FBM Spyder Teardrop Body
Smart Parts Teardrop 14" barrel
Check It Products Assault block w/ Bob Long Mini Guage
Check It Products Sweetspot Trigger
Bob Long Torpedo Regulator
Scenario Dreams T-Board w/ break beam eyes
DYE Sticky Grips
Great regulator for the price used, comes on Intimidators, common upgrade on many many markers.
Colors, black or chrome only. Output is stopped at 600
I bought this reg becuase of its durability on both CO2 and on N2/AIR so I could use both. I also bought it in chrome since it matched my assault block, and oh boy did it look nice.
Once broken in it performed well, keeping me in a range of +/- 10 at most times and it got worse with co2 when shooting fast, but it kept up well and stayed within the limit.
Looks well, has a guage mount, easy to maintain.
I recomend this to anyone who's gun doesnt come with a regulator or has a spyder. Other than that, you want an increased recharge rate
8 because commonly found used, great performers for price, and looks great depending on accessories.

Sturdy as hell
Ok so I just bought my new rocking Psycho Ballistics Lightning and I needed a reg so...the guy told me the only reg that would fit they had was a torpedo (which I know wasnt true they had a psycho ballistics reg right there) but anyways I wanted to check it out so he show me and tells me all the stuff about it...I really didnt know regs were that high stantard now. Anyways it didnt seem like anything else could compete with it except for its price (60 bucks lol). So I bought it thinking low pressure expansion chamber AND and reg on the autococker would be crazy! It ended up....IT WAS! The only part that really effects my FPS is my piece of crap stock barrel.
Very good on any gun that uses nitro! Dunno what it does for CO2. It will improve anything you slap it on. I recommend a macroline for it instead of steel braided. I think its the best reg out there. I dont think theres any with low pressure systems at least. Buy for any kinda gun you want especially if you coverting to nitro.
