I've been seeing all of these people who have Epiphanys getting the CP regs instead of the stock ones but I don't really see why... will a new reg make that much of a difference?

Also I looked up CP regs on a few sites and it gives me a few choices of either a long reg, a short reg, and with or without a gauge port so what are the differences?

Thanks for the help

Regulators help you even out your shot to shot consistency. This is that +/- number you see often.

If you're not one of those guys who counts shots per fill, I wouldn't worry about it. The stock regulator is fine :(

Yeah i don't worry too much about my shots per fill but I heard somewhere I could bring my rate of fire up with a new regulator is this true?

Well there's something to be said for recharge rate (the time it takes the regulator to get your marker up to full pressure) but most fields and tournaments are capped at 15bps, and your stock regulator is more than capable of those speeds.

Of course, in the end its all up to you, maybe you simply want a cosmetic upgrade because most after market regulators would look better than the stock one.

Its up to you :blush:

Thru personal experience and others experiences, the SP regs are a hit and miss. I know several ppl that have had great luck with the stock regs. +/- is great, recharge is good BUT I know others and myself that could not get it to work no matter what I did. I finally went to a Dye Hyper 2 and all my problems are now gone!. If your reg works, keep it and go on. If not you may need to change it. Don't change it just to change it thou. That would be a waste of money. Functionally the CP regs are the same.

If it ain't broke... don't fix it. Our stock regs are actually pretty darn good. If you are having issues with it, just replace the reg seat and the oring on the end of the piston and that should take care of it.

I agree.
Any reg made by AKALMP will be amazing.
I have a sidewinder right now.
