Default Hpa

I went to my local shop to get my CO2 tanks refilled and asked about different gas set-ups. They gave me a full HPA tank (from the rentals) to try out. I was chrono'ing 260-280 (with some spikes and drops beyond that range) on CO2 and when I tried the air It was 305-310. The ball travelled flatter & straighter for a longer distance, and the velocity was a lot more stable. I didn't chop one ball out of a full hopper and was firing 3 round bursts and auto as well. I would expect some chops in auto with CO2. I think a nice HPA tank is my next purchase.

and do yourself a favor...get a better tank with a high-flowing valve. Spend the money but stay away fro Pure Energy...they rot. Something with a Centerflag of Gorilla reg...

The worrgas is a good choice, they use the gorrilla regs, which are supposed to be some of the best regs on the market. Centerflag, Crossman, Nitro Duck, almost all of em are the same, unless you decide to buy a 4500psi tank instead of a 3000psi. Its all gonna be based on price, because 3000psi tanks are 60-70 while 4500 range from 180-400.
