For anybody that is interested and can follow Technical detail, there is a series of articles in Hard Air Magazine that explain what nervoustrig has been banging on about as well as the advantages and disadvantages with regulated PCPs. Too many people believe that regulators are magic wands and can be installed in any unregulated gun and set to the centre of their velocity plateau pressure, without any other tuning and it will magically increase their shot count, power and accuracy. Instead of me trying to put into words that will be misunderstood, just look up those articles.

Aint that the truth.  I regulated a Marauder, and am still working on the accuracy part.  The regulator only gives a more consistent air pressure to work the rest of the accuracy equation including stuff like, twist rate, pellet weight, pellet BC, distance to target harmonics, and more.  The regulator just reduces the variability of air pressure (One of many elements), reducing one element in the accuracy equation!
