You can buy nice pre-made ones from a guy over on ca.org. Palmers also make some pretty simple pre-made ones. It really depends if you want it single regulated, double, what type of line, etc. They're pretty simple to make really.

So I would buy a hpa tank, a pressure gauge, a pressure regulator and a hpa line? Am I missing anything? (I already have a tapped mag)

Just the assorted fittings to connect all of that. If you look at a picture of a persons rig, it ca really help you know what goes where and what all you need. It basically goes like this if I'm not forgetting anything: HPA/CO2 Tank -> Regulator w/ gauge -> 1/8 Elbow Fitting -> Straight Macro Line or Coiled Hose -> Quick Disconnect Fitting -> 1/8 Fitting into magazine

I currently run a Palmers pursuit reg off of my tank, i do not have any other reg. should i invest in a second reg to make my shots consistent? (i have yet to sit down with my chrono and empirically test my current setups consistency) or could i get a SLP and get the same effect?

It could help some, but a lot of people don't use a second reg; I know I never did. If I were to build another HPA rifle, I'd probably spend the little bit extra and run a cheap secondary AR10 red or something.

I would think a secondary reg would be hard to fit inside a stock. You could get a stock pouch though and it would probably fit pretty well. Yeah, you can find some pretty good deals on regs/fitting, it jsut takes some looking around.

They're not necessary, but they will improve FPS and consistency. Basically, to max this rifle out, all you need is (these rifles are really pretty simple):

-upgraded striker spring (G&G)
-rubber bolt seal (G&G)
-VSR hop-up conversion (King Arms)
-comes with longer air nozzle
-VSR tightbore
-VSR bucking
-powerpack magazine parts (G&G)
-air rig
