Nelly on mid pressure

I own a nelspot 007 that I have set up for back bottle, I normally just run a 13/3k on the back for a light set up, but I was wondering if I could run my 45/4500 tank that has a ninja adjustable reg sitting at 480 with my nelly. Would it not be a high enough pressure?

You would likely have to change the springing if you wanted to go that low of a pressure.

You'll almost def have to change springs. And do other mods. Search around here, the CCI forum and pump forums for a lot of stuff about modifying nelson based valve systems for mid and low pressure. You could run the 480psi tank with new springs at a minimum, but it might not work too well efficiency/consistency wise, if at all at 260-280fps. You'll likely have to do a little work on the powertube, valve and valve housing to get it working well at that pressure. No drop in upgrades (other than springs of course) that'll get you're nelson running below 500psi, although I've had a freak phantom that runs well (with new springs) at 550-600psi, so you never really know till you try

Medium pressure (500 psi or so) is pretty easy. You can do that on most Nelsons with spring changes alone. It is when you get down lower than you start to see problems with unmodified setups.

Make sure you have a good paint-to-bore match though, you want all the gas you can get behind the ball.

A longer, less ported barrel can help too, depending on the valve dwell. The different length tips on an evil ultra pipe can make a difference, for instance.
