What if I got a palmers and ran regulated co2 into my marker and used low pressure internals? How would that work?

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?

its gonna be regulated now, so its gonna be about as gas efficient as it can be, plus its gonna be more consistant from shot to shot so yes tighter groupings should come into play

Yes, but would it be worth it for me to buy a LPK and just use the internals?

I really really really don't think that would work. I don't think you can regulate CO2 low enough for the low pressure kit and still function

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=

18. Why would you recommend the LPK to me?
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.

Oh, so high pressure means more shots, but low pressure is easier on the marker. Do you know what a tippmann runs best on? I heard 450 is pretty good.

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.

As far as I know, The LPK was made for use with co2.. Just make sure your reg can handle co2.. A palmer is a perfect choise
