Converting PB Lightning to SNIPER

I KNOW this has been covered bt when I search it I get many volumes of information.

What I have: (see pic) Cocker body, pump kit, bottom line adapter. It "works" but it ain't "right" it stil has the "Feed only HPA Springs and valve".


>>>BEFORE<<<


>>>AFTER<<<

Psycho Ballistics Lighting body, frame, hammer, and valve
CCM back block and pump kit
Bolt and cocking rod from Bacci.
Bottom line, Hose, Regulator, and barrel from my parts bucket.

What I want: I want it to work straight off of a normal co2 tank (I have a 3.5, 7, an 9 oz that I like using in pump games).

Thanks everyone.

It can work off CO2 depending on the valve or if its regulated. Is that a regulator on there?

If you wanna run co2 in the VASA directly, you're gonna need to replace the valve. Either a stock pre2k valve or a Palmers HP low turbulence will do the trick.

Personally, I would go with a different body for that particular application. The PB bodies didn't have the best reputation for tolerances in the lower tube.

So... what kind of reg should I slap on this pig to get it running properly?

Since this gun was made from mostly left-over/damaged stuff, I was thinking an INEXPENSIVE reg would be nice...

Azodin Inline or Piranha DSR maybe...

Are you still planning on using CO2 because there are certain regulators that are better with CO2. If you're using compressed air, there are a lot of regulators that will work for you, the WGP Ergo among them. You'll probably find some good ones on here for about $30.

Actually, I converted it to a bunch of spare parts. I'll probably use the pump kit on my Prostock if I feel the need.

Thanks to all for input and advice.
