Read this though.

* Pure Energy reg initially recovers within 10ms, although the pressure oscillates and full recovery is not achived for another 20 ms.

Basically the pressure spikes up and down for 20 Ms. So while crossfire and PE have the same initial recharge, crossfire is in the long run faster, and more consistent.

In 1970 the Chevy Nova was created. This was the worst selling car in Mexico because the words "No va" mean "Doesn't go". If you would never buy a Saturn Ion because the word "Ion" means "Doesn't shoot", Put this in your profile.

I didnt notice you put the recharge rates in there. Thanks for using my name and giving me some credit.

BTW.... this is probably the most helpful thread on this whole forum.

72ci 3000psi, what do those numbers mean? I think I know what that 3000 means (It holds 3000pounds per square inch) but what does that 72ci mean?

Thats the Cubic Inches, from a 72/3000 you can probably get around 750 shots perfill.

So since you could fill HPA from a scuba tank with an adapter, would it be hypothetically possible to rig up your hpa tank to a mask and use it as a tiny scuba diving system? Just curious...OR!!! Could you hook up a scuba tank to a modified marker and make a gatling gun type thingy for a fixed defensive position? Just day dreaming while I'm supposed to be working.

I'm not sure about the first question but the second you could probably do, I think you mean like a large HPA or co2 tank conected to say two A-5's?

One, no it wouldn't you would kill yourself. Humas are designed to breath in atmospheric pressure. Which is 15.7 PSI at sea level. At the lowest an HPA tank will put out 400 PSI. Try to inhale it pop, go your lungs, out goes your life.

For the second one, with the correct adaptors sure. I would rig some hose to a fill station connect it to your tank, and just open up the valve.

I have a Ariakon sim 4 and I've been thinking of upgrading to HPA becouse I'm kind of sick of the irregularity I get from co2.

So can I and should I switch to HPA?

Wow.

Thanks a lot. This really helps me. I have a CO2 setup, but have been wondering about switching to an HPA.

With all this info, it makes the decision really easy!

So let me see if I have this right. For me to put HPA onto an ION or Tac-one, I have to find out if they are high or low pressure markers. Then I have to decide based on that what type of cylinder I need to power the marker? The remote line I am wanting to connect everything will not really matter as long as the hose can support it?

So, then if I got a 65/3000 tank for instance), that would be a low presure tank, and would fire approx 650 - 700 balls on a fill, and each fill would only give me 3000 in pressure r ight?

And finally, a high pressure tank will not work on a Low pressure marker without an adaptor?

I guess I have a bit more research to do beofre I purchase the markers so I can get cost evaluations.

Hope I got things right, if not then I am sure I will be told about it.
