What would I need to do to convert to HPA and a remote?
Just wondering what would i need to get to use HPA with a remote on my VM?
No reason for an expansion chamber, right?

The output preasure of the vm would need to be 800-1000 psi.

Lighter valve spring.

CO2 is way better.

Hmm, maybe it's just time to retire the old girl and sell her off for something like an A5 or X7 :(

Don't sell it for an A5. There are a few tweaks depending on how much you are willing to do to it. A high pressure output HPA tank is a requirement however that's the same output a Tippmann would need as well.

Has anyone tried one of those SHP regs on these??

"shp"? Are you referring to the hand built shimmed regs that the one company is making? The out put preasure on them is 800+ - 1000PSI+

They work.

I was thinking of the ones that are supposed to be putting out 1100+-, I don't have one but have heard a little about them on here and thats probably what you are talking about. As cool as my quad tank VM is I plan to run one on HPA once I figure out how to make a reliable, controllable mechanical full auto. I have a few ideas for a sear delay system to cut the ROF.

while I like CO2... we all know how fast these things chew through a tank. It's a lot cheaper to get all day air vs refilling a 10oz tank all day long.

DarkNinja 07-06-2012 03:03 PM

There are other mounting options for co2, you can put a 20oz on it and get a lot more run time out of it.

well, yeah. that I know.
Would running a remote have any expansion chamber effect? Finding an EC for these is near impossible these days.

Object of an ec is to provide space for liquid to expand and gas to fully expand. Remote will help, especially if you keep the tank vertical. Some WV were designed to flow and work the gas, adding chambers or fins, others were simply a chamber.
