Default hpa and etek

I've been looking at buying an etek ego. Will my 68 4500 hpa tank i have on my pilot acs work or will i have to buy a lpa tank for it. I can save the money for the gun but another tank would be too much.

You should be all set... The HPA tank should work with it.

Side note... My local shop has them already and the lights are pretty , but it is not milled at least it does not look like it is. But I guess PE needed to save money some how!

Post up some pics after you get it.

Whew Etek ego FTW... Yes the HP tank will work... the only markers i know of that wont work off HP tanks are Angels... just becasue they operate at like 25 PSI (correction?).... and 800 PSI would put too much strain on the stock reg...

No sac.... if you use a HP tank on m ore recent angels you will destory the reg... Now on older model angels you can use HP tanks (LED, IR3, etc...).

Older models needed LP because the regs were crappy. Now you can use any tank you want on them.
