Anyone know what the opperating pressure of this gun is? I would like to know so I can decide if I want a high pressure tank or a low pressure tank when I order my HPA

Stay with a high pressure tank. Low pressure is really only for guns like some Angels, Egos and the like that run at very, very low pressures. You'll starve your gun if you go for a low pressure tank.

I kinda figured, I was thinking about picking up a 68ci 4500psi Dye Throttle tank off of Actionvillage.

I actually don't know much about those tanks. A few months ago I was reading in some forum that the Throttles weren't all that great - slow recharge - but I have no actual experience.
Of course, we'll spout the three biggies for ya - Crossfire, Centerflag and PMI are all good ones to have! I have a PMI Pure Energy (for about 2 years now) and a System X with a Bulldog Reg ( about a year - it's rebuildable to either high or low pressure, so it's great!) and haven't had problem with either one.

My buddy from college uses Dye Throttles with his Auto Cockers and says they are amazing tanks and regs. Apprently he was on a pro team... but I don't really believe him... I'll put up a little review of the tank on this gun when I get to use it

i use a pmi 72/3000 and it works with out any problems. my uses the pmi 68/4500 and that works flawlessly also! so IMO i would go with pmi all day

I just got my Dye Throttle today and let me tell you it fits like a glove on the MR2. Tomarrow I am going to fill the tank and use it so I'll let everyone know how good it does.

I got the Dye filled and the gun was shooting ALOT more consistant.
