HP Cocker Valve Question

Hey, So I figuring out my setup for a pre2k pump cocker with HP valve. It runs great off 12grams, but I want to be able to change it over to CA on the fly. My current thought is to run a remote line from the VA.

I'm wondering if my SP Dye Throttle HPA tank is HP enough to run the valve without problems or if I should just run the remote to a CO2 tank. I would only be running the tank reg, no HPR if I used HPA.

edit: and where the hell do you all buy your ten round tubes? lol

CO2 natural operating pressure at good temps is about ~850psi, this is what pressure most older guns designed on CO2 were designed for.

You should be fine running a stock older cocker off an HPA only reg and taking off the on-gun reg... considering most HPA regs are designed to output about that pressure... You may need to adjust your hammer spring a bit though.

That said, dual regs are a benefit as long as they have enough 'buffer' room (like at least 100psi difference between them IMO) to recharge quickly.

Celani's paintball is the best place to get 12ies and ten round tubes. Tituspb.com.
