Angels and HP output tanks

Is there a way to get a newer Angel to run on an HP output tank? Like with a regulator or something? Sorry, I don't know much about these markers and I'd like to continue the use of my HP output tank. Thanks for the help!

Yep. Any good regulator will drop the pressure to a useable range. Just remember to start it as low as you can get it and go up from there--too high and you can do some weird stuff.

Heck, put in an anti-siphon and run a good reg, and you can run an Angel--carefully--on Co2.

Some of the older Angels had weird European reg threads, so you'd need to track down an adapter or stick with the crappy stock reg. The newer ones shouldn't have a problem.

I figured it would be that simple, but I heard some crap about LP and Angels and just wanted to be sure. Thanks!

WDP recommends the use of LP tanks because it will put less of a beating the seals. Depending on your tank reg, you can send the reg BACK to the manufacturer and get the LP spring put in, since that is what seperates most HP and LP tanks from one another.

The newer angels have a reg that is not easily replaceable and does not like HP input. One of the local tourney guys traded his ego for an Angel one, hooked up his preset HPA and promptly destroyed the A1's reg. WDP hooked him up with new guts for the reg but he sent the Angel back because he didn't want/couldn't afford to swtich tanks.

I believe someone makes an ASA that allows you to use different regs which would solve the problem but if you're a cosmetics freak, the color/finish probably won't match.

If you switch to LP to satisfy the Angel, you'll have a tank that 99% of the other markers won't be satisfied with so if you need to swtich markers or have other markers, you'll need 2 tanks or will need to drop the cash for an adjustable air system(which isn't all bad but are generally bulkier and more expensive than a preset).

CP makes the replacement asa's for the newer angels so you can use their regs or any other aftermarket reg.

I may try to grab an older Angel then. I use my HP preset on like 3 other markers, so I can't have it switched to LP, and I can't drop the cash on another air system. Besides, I've always been a fan of the old LCDs and IR3s the like.

FYI.. anything older than the original speed can run on HP/LP Post speed starting with the A4's they will need a LP out put.

Not to sure on how to combat it but what my friend who is a angel tech tends to do is tinker with the LPR shim stack and dwell to get it to run right..

Short answer... get an LP tank

Well, I've been offered an Angel IR3 Rocky Cagnoni edition. These are actually the gen I was looking for, would an IR3 be good on HP?
