So I'm making a pressure tester and i would like to know what you think is the best pressure range of paintball gauge to get.

Pressure of what? HPR? LPR? Tank?

The best range to get is the one that encompasses all the pressures you're going to measure and nothing more. Also the bigger the gauge the better, since bigger gauges will typically be easier to read and have more graduations on them.

Idk regulator pressures, possibly tank output maybe if i decide on a higher pressure one.
I'm ordering some stuff online and the website has a lot of gauges on sale for like $5-$10 and I recently found an old remote line tip thingy that i could use.

So whatever you think will be more useful; precise readings at lower pressures or the ability to test both gun regs and tank regs

I like that one ^^^

But you can probably get something like this at a hardware store too, and it's still 1/8 npt.

If you want to measure tank outout, you're going to need atleast an 800psi, but won't be that accurate at lower pressures.
