I've been looking at buying an etek ego. Will my 68 4500 hpa tank i have on my pilot acs work or will i have to buy a lpa tank for it. I can save the money for the gun but another tank would be too much.

You should be all set... The HPA tank should work with it.

Side note... My local shop has them already and the lights are pretty :), but it is not milled at least it does not look like it is. But I guess PE needed to save money some how!

Post up some pics after you get it.

Whew Etek ego FTW... Yes the HP tank will work... the only markers i know of that wont work off HP tanks are Angels... just becasue they operate at like 25 PSI (correction?).... and 800 PSI would put too much strain on the stock reg...

you can use an HP tank on any gun, even most angels.

Thanks alot guys, I didn't wanna get it and have it not work. I wanna get the black one and get the red parts kit(sposedly still works on the etek). It'll be a little while before i get one but i'll definately post pics when i do.

No sac.... if you use a HP tank on m ore recent angels you will destory the reg... Now on older model angels you can use HP tanks (LED, IR3, etc...).

isnt it the other way around, more recent ones accept hp tanks but the old ones blew regs...

Older models needed LP because the regs were crappy. Now you can use any tank you want on them.

ya lol thats what i was thinking... i mean changing from a gun that can handle hp to a gun that cant seems like a downgrade
