TT, First about that compressor, you choose well as Quincy is a VERY reputable outfit and they build some of the best compressors made and if you plan on wearing that thing out before getting a bigger unit you had better be prepared to wait a looooong time! You can believe the numbers that they claim and count on the amount of CFM that will be listed. I would suggest a Sharpe 880a regulator unit but if cost is a concern then some of the newer HF outfits work darn good too. It sounds like you do have a restriction and if so then a new regulator could solve the problem just make sure it is indeed at the regulator and not some place else in the line. I have even seen some of the Chinese pipe fittings with the inside choked down to a fraction of the supposed size so if you have anything like that it might be a good idea to check them out also.
