Hello! I have decided to put some money aside to build an HPA rig suitable for my G96. the help i am looking for is feedback and answers to some of the questions I have. Feel free to drop some feedback in the comments!

1. The Tank I am using is a Ninja 4500 PSI HPA tank.
Liquid Artifact Bottle Font Gas


2. The Regulator I am looking at is either Palmers micro rock, or a Ninja LPR system regulator. Which one do you guy's think is better with the tank I am getting? the price difference is about $30. Which one is better for the 4500 psi tank?

Below is the Ninja:
Camera accessory Cameras & optics Cylinder Optical instrument Bicycle part


Below is Palmers:

3. The line i will be running is Amped's "Flexi line"
Eyelash Wire Close-up Metal Circle

4. Final, I have one question that might sound very silly, but what is the nipple piece i screw into the tapped magazine called? I cant't seem to find it. something like quick release male end ?
Feel free to comment if I left anything out!

I can personally vouch for palmer, their regulators are really good, and you also get the option to run on CO2. The pressure consistency is amazing :yup:

Not sure which regulator you're after though. The link you posted points to a school schedule :shrug:
I would be using a low pressure regulator to drop it to about 80-110 psi correct? Also, does this look like an appropriate regulator ?

If you are looking at the palmers, this is the one you should get, not the micro rock.

The ones used primarily in airsoft are Foster Series 2 connectors. They use 1/8 NPT. If you need a nipple I have some and I can send you one if needed.

As for the other HPA regs, damn near all of them will give you roughly the same performance in a sniper rifle.
Ok thanks. Big thanks to all of you guys! Now I should be able to set this up with ease

The Firebase regulator is just a rebranded Ninja. So yes, the Ninja would do.

About all of the mentioned regs so far, it's true that the best now are the SFR and STORM. Ninja / Firebase and specially Palmer's are old and older designs, that doesn't provide adequate refresh rate for those modern ridiculously high RoF full auto HPA builds.
But of course, you don't need such thing for a BASR. So any of those would do.

In fact, you can even get away with an industrial regulator, as the SLP one that Amped sells. That's also probably the cheaper route, but that doesn't make it any worse (or better) than any of the others in a basr. Bear in mind that you'd need a SLP tank to use it with though.

The problem with all of those reg but the STORM is that they fit off-centre of the tank, so they quickly become a major league PITA to carry. That's why I would choose the STORM.

Well, not really. If it was my choice, I would totally go for a Mancraft's MARS and use 12g CO2 cartridges hidden inside the stock, for a more streamlined setup. And probably go even further, permanently attaching the gas part of the mag to the receiver, and using bb "sticks" to feed it, eliminating the need for extra mags, and hiding any sign of a HPA/CO2 rig :)
What's a bb stick? Thanks for the response explaining the differences.
