I've been looking around online for polar star hpa setups, (tank, hose, regulator, stabilizer) and I cant find a suitable option for under $250. I'm wondering what my cheapest option is, while still being effective.

Build it yourself. That is going to be your absolute cheapest solution.

Look on ebay for the regulator. That'll save you some money there (in theory, anyway). I built the entire rig (it's HPA-ready, but I run CO2 because it's cheaper) for my GBBR and my KJW M700 for between $100-150 (it's been a long while since then, so my memory is a little fuzzy). I built it using the guide Brainplay made in the Tanaka subforum of the Sniper Rifles forum. It'll also give you some specific criteria regarding regulators.

Well, I got my HPA ready rig from Palmers Pursuit shop on Ebay. It was 116$ shipped. You could also pick up a gauge from Ebay while you are there for about ten bucks. It's done everything I've needed regulated gas for.

I don't vent, I'm violently honest.

I bought one from here I got there most expensive version but there Ranger model is the cheapest complete and ready to go one I found. $135 for the remote and they also have a 62 / 3000 air tank for $65 bucks. Thats $200.00 for the whole thing.
You might be able to build one cheaper but nobody seems to have all the parts in one place so its a pain in the *** to track it all down.
I know I tried. a-grin.gif

Best place to get the Polarstar rig is Ampedairsoft.com best customer service in the business. Best place for a tank is craigslist or pbnation.com's for sale section. I picked up a couple from craigslist a 68ci/4500 crossfire and a ninja 48/4500 got both for around $100(the ninja is a very nice tank...). Just remember to check if the tank is in hydro date still or it will need to get checked and that will cost you $30+

The advice your getting is good for most HPA setups but not so much for a polarstar, they are very specific about the stabilizer and the secondary regulator to use, deviate from that and its not going to operate as intended. I have heard good things about the AKA regulator that redline is using also.

Enjoy your fusion engine, best money I have ever spent on airsoft..

Pretty sure I built the ideal set up for under 250. Ideal setup is going to have an aka 2-liter and an smc ar10.

I don't have any first hand knowledge as far as Amped goes but I have heard good things about them. And from what I understand Polarstar is switching to the AKA reg too instead of the stabilizer.
From talking to the guys at Redline and from my own experience with my system the secondary reg really is not needed. I have to say my gun shoots great. No shoot down and it is super consistent.

But I do agree that getting my PR15 was the best money I ever spent on airsoft!
