good info to know about hpa, but one thing i would like to know is the weights of the various tanks, I'm trying to design a set-up with massive air and am toying with scuba bottles, their sizes vary from 6cf pony bottles up to the big boys 80 to 110cf , <human refill station comes to mind> . But i was thinking along the lines of a 13cf=156ci which weights in at about just under 6lbs. I do realize that i would have to put a regulater on the set-up and that this would have to be a remote system for sure. So my question is can anyone tell me the weights of hpa tanks filled, i have the co2 tanks weights already, i would really be thankful.

My friend was wondering if you could use a PMI Fixed HighPressure Tank;

On the Spyder VS2. Would you be able to regulate it down to 200PSI or whatever is needed for the Vs2?


I couldn't help him since I only play with Co2, not familiar with HPA.

Would he have to get a LP Tank, or get a new reg to regualte it down?

I'm also thinking of making the switch to HPA, probably a Crossfire or PE tank. I keep seeing people talk about making sure they use the proper regulator when using HPA or LPA. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesnt an HPA tank already have its own regulator?

Is there a way to drop the pressure down in my A5 without using the lpk? I do not like the looks of the LPK.

no, you can use the stock reg on the gun to adjust the pressure

yes both lp and hp tanks have regs on the tanks

I highly doubt that a a-5 can run on a lp tank.
hpa should be fine. you might have to respring it.
I'm not the bet at a-5's but I did my best.

thanks for the article. it convinced me to get a 47/3000. one thing you missed is what oil can and cant be used with HPA? i heard petroleum-based oils can ignite under the pressure so what do you recommend?
