Can you use an HPA tank for an Invert Mini or will it blow the reg? or just a LP tank.Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I am a tippmann user, new to high end.

the reg is their to bring higher pressured air down to a safe, usable level.

HP tanks will work fine.

You should use HPA, I guess LPA would work to but don't quote me on that. Co2 is a no no, it will mess with the noid and probably do other stuff that is bad. Only comp air on the mini.

The manual says that "if you use CO2 the regulator will break" and "do not attempt to run the mini on CO2". So HPA looks to be the way to go. :happy:

That's probably my fault. I just wanted to cover all the bases and brought up co2.

Shalashaska, you silly over zelous guy... :P


long story short, comp air/nitrogen on your HEM.

long story... you can only use compressed air or nitrogen on your HEM. the atmosphere is composed of more than 70% nitrogen so compressed air works fine. nitrogen does not equal nitrous... thats a whole different gas. and we all know CO2 is a no no... :D
