HPA + Hardline?

If I use HPA with a hardline it won't blow it apart will it? Which gets better efficiency macro line or hard line?

HPA pressure with a typical reg is usually around be the same pressure as CO2 at room temp. Unless the reg fails there shouldnt be any problem.

The reg takes the pressure in the bottle of 3000 or 4500psi down to 800-900psi before it goes into the asa.

Hardline prob has a high burst pressure than macro anyways.

Well I'm running VSC setup with a vertical HPA tank (13/30) Sunday and was just wondering. So everything will be ok?

Ok, I appreciate it. I thought I read somewhere not to use HPA with Hardline.

The was the vertical asa is made do I put a tank on there?
I'm thinking I just unscrew that part that the 12 gram bucket holds on to, correct?

grammar hard to follow. Must be those southern types. ( I sent my first kid to Ga. for collage so I hope you take that as a joke).

It is more likely you were told not to use micro-line for HPA as there are several grades of micro-line being sold and not all of it can handle the higher pressure. As a rule the hard lines are rated for higher pressures than micro-lines, or macro-lines for that matter. If you are asking if you attach the HPA to the ASA where the bucket changer screws into, the answer would be yes assuming both have the standard bottle threads.

Ok then it should work, I hope. What would I use to detach that piece.

Above post: It takes me a while to type things, I try to leave out as much of my southern talk as possible.

's ok. Probably took me 15 min. to type the above post.
What gun are you using? I would think the bucket changer should be screwed into a vertical ASA on your gun and should just screw off. The front part of the changer that the CO2 power-let slides into should just unscrew. Then the HPA bottle should simply screw on in it's place, if it is of the screw in persuasion. If not you might need to use a dummy CO2 in the bucket changer and run a remote line from the HPA bottle to it.
Do you have any pictures?

A Phantom. Here is a picture I just took.

You can see a lip where the threads are. That is where the bucketchanger screws on at. Do I just unscrew from that lip off and then screw the tank in where it is at? I think I'm going to have to use a wrench or some pliers.



Edit: That picture is horrible.
