A-5 LPK with co2 and palmers? o.0
Posted 17 September 2007 - 08:16 AM
Would I save any co2?
Would I have better groups that if I used stock internals?
If I run my A-5 at 450 PSI how many shots could I get out of a 20 oz tank?

Uhh.... no. When you lower the pressure, the valve has to release more air to get the ball up to speed. High pressure, low volume vs. Low pressure, high volume. You are not going to see any noticeable increases in efficiency. But it will be more consistent because of the regulator and thus shoot tighter groupings.
Umm... that's the point of the LPK, to use the internals. I'm not sure what you are asking. Is the LPK worth it? Read this: http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index...c=44763&hl=
A. I don't. I am simply providing an explanation. Now, as to when I would or would not recommend it, it depends on your barrel. If you are using a flatline barrel system, go ahead. The Flatline with the LPK becomes much more tolerant of lower quality paint (though, not to all paints), and is a bit more accurate. If you're using a straight barrel...it's simply not worth it.
Umm... no. You can regulate CO2 to any pressure like HPA. I have my Blazer running under 400 psi on CO2 right now through a Stabilizer.

No, not exactly. With a low pressure gun, you are able to "reach" further into the tank. So instead of your marker crapping out, say, when the pressure drops below 800 psi, it will continue to function until the pressure drops below 400 psi. Low pressure in a blowback means less recoil (less mass in the hammer and less force driving it back) and quieter operation. In the end, you might get slightly fewer shots with the LPK, but really not enough to concern yourself over.
A stock Tippmann operates at around 800 psi, maybe a bit higher or lower depending on your particular gun and any mods you've done to it. With the LPK, they can go down to 400 psi or lower, if I remember correctly.
