the cheaper aquateck regulator without selonioid:

it's just a bit trickier to adjust the bubbles per sec, but yes, it works just fine. I personally would not buy the more expensive one. not worth it for a cheaper paintball set up

Make sure you guys have a reliable source for refills. The two Sports Authority's near me let their refill machines to dead for over 8 months before I gave up. I stick with DIY now
