LP and HP question

Can i use my Crossfire LP tank on my 68 Classic? I have an RVA and lvl7.
Sometimes, my HP Throttle gets pissy.

Short answer: No.

You probably could get the gun working with the LP tank, but it won't be happy. Since the dump chamber operates around the same pressure as the LP tank output, you would have to shoot at slower rate of fire and you may not even be able to get enough velocity.

If any LP tank could do it, I would guess a crossfire.

The problem is the pressure because that also translates into velocity. The valve design [and it's dump chamber] rely on better than 400 psi to keep a "standard" velocity. I tried my Myth reg on my Classic and MiniMag valved markers and they weren't happy, regardless of how slow I shot the marker.

And the Myth is an arguably better reg than any Crossfire [in terms of construction and recharge]
