well if u are willing to buy a regulator get a high pressure tank. but if u dont want to buy a regulator then get a Low pressure tank.

im looking at tanks on ebay and want a 4500 psi one. will 850 imput be too much w/o a regulator?

i have a low pressure tank and it works really well. but 850 might be too much psi fr the gun

I tried a LP one today and it was only shooting at 185... 210 max

Used my HP one and I got up to the 285 mark

*siiiigh*....

LP tanks are for true LP markers...Shockers, Timmies, Angels, Imps, etc
HP tanks are for mid-end to cheaply priced guns with or without inline or bottom-line regs because their standard operating pressure is between 800 and 950 psi...

Think of it this way...if you can hook up unregulated CO2 to it...antisiphonned or not...you use HP.
If there's a reg between the bottle and the VA, you can use HP because the in-line reg reduces that 850 at the bottle to whatever the reg is set at.

so if i get a this regulator (http://guerrillaair.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=31). would i be able to put it onto my 3A pintball 68ci 3000psi tank? because if this would work then that would solve some problems i have with my shutter it has like no velocity. but yea regulators just screw on right?
