Hi everybody... :)

As you all knows, the electra could use CO2 or Air, i can`t afford a HPA tank yet, and i have a CO2 tank, i read that the Co2 make the snow problem, so i was reading and reading, and a lot of people said that i should buy a Palmer Stab.., i know its expensive, but its said that the estability is almost perfect, and the snow problem is fixed..., but as my title says: "Thinking in the future", i read that the Palmer is excelent in the CO2, but not soo good with the air, its that true? if i buy the Stab, when i go to the HPA it will not work good and the money will be wasted?? :confused: :confused:

Any help it will be very appreciated.
Thanks in Advance. :)

i dont think co2 will hurt your gun so my opinion is you should just save the money and get the HPA. Keep in mind im a +~noob~+

Welcome... I am not sure about the Palmer's and HPA, I am sure you will get an answer here from someone soon. As for C02 hurting your marker, well it is not going to get so cold that the aluminum will split, but it will freeze and crack o-rings. If you can't get an HPA tank, maybe try to anti-siphon your C02. That way you send less, if any, liquid C02 into the marker.

Hope that helps a little.

i know its a little expensive, but i read that the pressure stuff its the key in any gun, and i read a lot of good reviews for the Palmer Stab, and its an upgrade to my future HPA way.., i will buy it soon, Thanks for the answers,
I am new in this, very new, i am trying to learn all that i can, but if you guys don`t mind, can you tell me the difference between Low Pressure and High Pressure? i mean, wich is better?, do i need to have anothers things if i go to the Low or to the High?? sorry for my ignorance..

Thanks again for your answers..

if your speaking in terms of HPA tanks always get the Hi Pressure one.

ohhh, ok, Thanks Dex.., so wich is better, the high or the low?

Low pressure lets out 400-450psi and high pressure lets out 800psi. The High pressure one is the thing to get because you can use it on any marker; not just one that is Low Pressure. ;)

yep, you'd need to go through a lot of upgrading before you could go to low pressure ... there's always home mod's too though ...

Since your talking about HPA ... low pressure your spyder can't use without mod's ... but high pressure you can just plug it in and use it from there ... If your gun is modded to low pressure, your gun will get a bit more shots, but it's really all up to you.
