I am just wondering with HPA how much does the regulator do?  Is it just simpler to not use a reg so you don't have to worry about another part?

Its not needed that much on Tippmanns, since they are already a high-pressure gun.  If you had a Low-Pressure Kit it would be important.

I am going to have to disagree with Skillet just a little bit. The secondary regulator (the one built into the HPA tank valve is called the primary regulator) improves consistency of pressure from shot to shot much better than just the tank regulator.

With just the primary reg my pressure varied enough from shot to shot enough to make + or- 20 fps difference. When I added the Palmer Stabilizer my velocity variation dropped to only + or - an average of 4 fps. That was spectacular performance in my book.
