Ask the question once to maintain low pressure.

Seriously though,

This is a pure guess but I'm thinking the low pressure question is in response to Xeo28 saying to git rif of the HPR. IF, that is the case He meant that he is not enamored with the regulator and merely suggest that you find a diifferent regulator as the one shown can be rather tiresome to adjust.

Perhaps someone could provide a link to some of the low pressure cheat sheets out there. like AutoCocker Low Pressure

I think you don't know what those abbreviations mean.

The LPR (low pressure regulator) is used to cock the gun; it's one of the components of the front block, with the small hoses. The HPR (high pressure regulator...the one that goes into your vertical ASA) lowers pressure from the tank so that the hammer can open the valve enough to let sufficient amounts of air through.

The problem with the regulator you have right now is that to adjust the pressure, you have to take off the fitting at the bottom and that's where you can insert an Allen wrench to adjust it, whereas other regulators have more accessible adjustment mechanisms.

Take a read at the link I provided, I think you will find it very helpful.

The low pressure regulator (LPR) has a very specific purpose as it relates to the cocking mechanism. Switching to a pump will eliminate the need for the low pressure regulator. (You are will now do the work).

The high pressure regulator (HPR) is very important to firing paint and velocity control. Within that space you can operate withi two ranges of operating pressure.

I hope that helps a little. and I hope it wets your appettite towards the fun you can have tinkering with an A/C. There is a lot of configurations you can play with.
