Thruster Regulator for Air Power Vector c.1995-96

Here is a Thruster regulator built by Air America for the Vector pneumatically actuated paintball marker. Likely year on this reg is around 1995 to 96 and would accompany some of the higher end custom vectors.

In this video I show a one handed breakdown (or partial breakdown) on this reg and the belleville washers (springs) used to adjust it. Other regs around this time using the Belleville spring pack were the Southport reg, Dave Kermodes KC No Hot Shot Reg and The Sheridan RG-1 Reg.  

I asked on facebook if anyone remembers using these regs on paintguns other than the Vector and Mikko Kurki-Suonio commented:
“I had one back in the day. I had the remote version, which came with an ASA stock. No reason you couldn’t use it with any gun, but I never saw one except with Vector.
The tournament lock is badly designed. If you tighten it hard, you change the settings.
Ahhh… The Vector. It was actually really good except for some design choices mostly caused by Air Power’s pigheadedness about wanting to go for the military/police training market and refusing to make changes requested by hobby players.
The output range is probably something like 600-800psi.”
