old pre 99 sniper questions
my friend gave me this old pre 99 sniper 1 serial # 1052. i was wondering do i need to run a reg or can i run co2 direct into the gun.

That gun was made before regulators were used on paintguns. Pre 99 is an understatement. That's a Sniper I you've got there. Very nice gun you've got though. Where can I get friends like yours ?

do you happen to know the output of co2?

around 7-800 psi. Word to the wise, take care of that as it is a very nice collector's piece. Don't take off the sticker! ;)

either will run, reg will make it a little more consistant. But that thing is a collectors piece... :)

i used my compressed air tank, output about 800 psi. when i fire it, it seems like the valve barely opens. maybe there is too much pressure behind the valve? do i need to re-spring it?

oh geez...

Please just hang that thing on the wall, or at the very most put a 3.5 in the asa and play a game or two. Don't futz with it, change parts, or screw with the internals! There are so few guns left of that vintage in good condition that it really would be a sin if it was damaged or the parts were separated.

Sorry to make assumptions, but it sounds as if you don't have much (if any) experience with gun with this style of operation and of this age. Please, don't experiment with that gun. Get a 2k+ cheapie sniper to experiment with if you have a desire to learn.

Just my .02
