what is the difference btwn. a high pressure tank and a low pressure tank? (other than the obvious fact that one reg's output is high and the other low lol) like is low more efficient? high better for the gun? and how do you know which of the two a gun can take? in case you guys didnt notice, im used to good ol CO2 :)

there is no difference in an HP or LP tank, besides what youve said.

almost all guns take HPA. there is no efficiancy differences

Eh, some markers work "better" with LP. Like older Angels and such, that required a LP tank unless you mod the HPR a certain way (flipping some springs, nothing hard).

HP all the way.....
I have a LP tank for my Angels and although it will work on most of my EP guns, it does not run stock Spyders or Tippmans.....
Angel mini regs are easily converted anyway...
