Alright heres what your goal for this regulator is:
I'd say get a 30 degree Port for the Macro/Steel fitting, We like our markers to look clean, and not have macroline bent upwards and side-ways
I actually like the reg milling, I would go for one which has a simple "dotted" steel grip
Do that, but in all steel, no rubber. Have the top portion of the reg look clean with little, or no cuts.
as Slinky said, Being able to grip in reg is important, especially when it comes to removing it.
Then I think for Style you would have a winner,
As for PERFORMANCE:
Depending on the price:
If your looking for a entry level reg, then 180-600 PSI is fine.
for a mid level/high end reg 100-600PSI is a MUST
Fast Recharge and Stable Rates are a givin.
The reg must be user serviceable, easy to get in and out of. and most importantly, easy to replace parts such as springs or O-rings
If you plan on doing a super high performance reg then it would have to come with a spring kit for each "pressure zone" (80-180PSI) (200-350 PSI) (375-600PSI) ect ect.
Keep updated us on pictures AND Cad drawings!! Even a CAd render is enough for us to have feedback,
I need a new regulator in about 2 months so I'd LOVE to support you guys in making a top notch product.
