I bought a used Electra DX followed by a HPA tank with a blue colored regulator. I was told that because the regulator is colored blue, it would mean it's a low presure regulator/tank. So my questions are as follows:

1) What is the operating pressure of the Electra DX?

2) If the tank I have now is low pressure, will it work (or work reliably) with my DX?

Thanks.

The out of the box PSI for an Electra is 800-850psi.

If the tank you got is a Crossfire, then you did indeed get a LP tank. Output on your tank is 400psi.

You will have to do 1 of 2 things to make sure you will run properly.

1- Convert your gun to a LP marker (Follow the guides on the PB Bible HERE (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/project.html))

or

2- Sell your tank and get a HP tank.

Even with converting your marker to LP an LP tank is hard to use, you get lots of drop off. I'd get rid of the LP tank and get an HP tank you'll be much happier.
