I have also heard that the VS3 only runs on compressed air and NOS. Others have said it runs on anything. What is true.

well the vs2-3 has what kingman calls a balance valve in it and it is suppose to use HPA with it..some people say if you have the right setup you can but i would/will not try it and people have reported their guages doing a 360* spin and messing up because co2 runs at about 800 psi. If you were to get the electra it is like a normal spyder which runs at a really high pressure and the vs2-3 runs at, well kingman says 220psi, but i have mine at about 250-60 right now, which in kingmans sence(sp?) is lp ........i say go with the vs2 and invest in HPA it is loads better hope i didnt confuse you

I bet co2 will run in a balance valve its just a matter of installing a co2 friendly regulator.

yes i have heard this but i would still not try it...i just think HPA is a better investment than trying to setup your gun for co2 and then getting shootdown and worry about the weather

qft (cough) look in sig.

If you have to run Co2 get the electra or the VS1. If you plan on using HPA the VS2 or VS3 are your best bets.

You can always install a "anti-siphon" which will prevent the co2 from freezing yer gun... although ive had hpa for awhile now and I would recommend it especially if you play alot, you will save your guns life and have fluid shots.
