Running a cocker on CO2?

I'm about to start working on converting my second PB Superbolt over to a pump. In my effort to keep this a SMALL package I was thinking of doing away with the regulator and just run CO2 straight into the valve area. But this will obviously run at a higher than usual pressure.

So can any of you gurus tell me what I need to do to keep the velocity in check? Or will the extra pressure push the valve closed quicker so in the end it'll all come out about the same and adjustable within the range of the stock hammer spring?

When it's done it'll sort of look like a cheapie blowback with bottom line. But it'll be small and light and that's what I'm after.

I'll be powering it with a 9oz CO2 bottle.
I had a "Paintball God" moment once.
Like Al Bundy's Polk High football moment I live on
for the slim chance of repeating that one time
miracle in some small way.........
