OK OK......My friend tells me that I should switch to HPA.....im like huh???.....my co2 tank is just fine.....I think.......DO YOU GUYS THINK THAT PUTTING A HPA TANK ON AN XTRA IS WISE?????......I mean I know its not the best gun....but could it handle it????

Yes, the Xtra could handle HPA, actually HPA is better for your gun's internals than co2, not to mention more consistant. HPA would be a great upgrade, even in you don't plan on doing anything else to your gun. CO2 will work fine as well if you don't want to spend the extra money on HPA.

Yeah it will work fine, also if you are in the market I have a 47 CI 3k HPA tank I can sell ya.

Yep HPA does not have drastic changes with temperatures as co2 does. Co2 spikes, and is very inconsistent. Co2 also is at liquid state, which means you have to allow it to expand ...

HPA is a great upgrade, and since stock spyders run at 800 psi, your in luck

It really depends how long you think your going to play paintball for .. if not for a long time i'd just say .. if you wish .. get the 47/3k tank that redbarron's going to sell you, since your probably gonna get a good deal ... but if not just stick with co2 .. if your going to stay with paintball for a long while though .. get a bigger thank .. as a 47/3k will probably last only 480 shots ... up or down .. depending on how efficient your gun is
