Most tanks are non-adjustable, and sold in either High Pressure or Low Pressure form. Older non-self-regulating electros like Angels require low pressure input or the seals will blow. High pressure tanks are much more versatile and will work on pretty much everything else - including your Tippmann. Today, pretty much all low pressure markers have a regulator as part of the design that can accept either high or low pressure tanks - some get slightly better consistency from a low pressure tank. Ultimately, If you're given the choice between the two, choose high pressure unless you specifically need low pressure.

One Belleville spring (shim)
They get stacked like )()()()()(. Take one out an you decrease the output pressure of the tank. ie 800 psi - 740 psi. PMI sells a shim kit to convert a hpa reg to lpa. Some adjustable regs allow you to remove a couple of shims to adjust output. Adding shims increase output.
