A 5 year old thread?

For guns that can use CO2, it's got a much better "usage/volume" ratio; you can shoot much more with a 20oz CO2 than you could with an air tank. Plus, CO2 tanks are smaller and lighter, so if your gun can use CO2 and you don't ramp the shit out of it, CO2 is more economical.

It depends on the gun and the size of tank you get, but most reports are standardized to a 68/45 tank. Guns can get anywhere from as little as 5-6 pods per fill all the way up to near 13-14 pods.

 

Also, unless you have a legitimate SCBA or paintball compressor, the only way a standard shop type compressor will work is if it is hooked up to the Shoebox compressor that is designed to take the ~100 or so psi output up to 3k or 4.5k standard for paintball.


In Topic: How to adjust an LPR?

The Ego 6 Factory LPR setting was flush.

So it adjusts exactly like the HPR, any settings you see for the 06 Ego LPR will be benchmarked "from flush." This refers to the head of the LPR screw being level with the front of the LPR housing. Turning the LPR screw in will decrease the LPR pressure, and turning it out increases the pressure.

 

IIRC the lowest recommended LPR setting is 1.5-2 turns in from flush, any lower and you might run into consistency issues. How far in or out was the LPR screw when you were getting velocity issues? It's also possible that your QEVs are bad or are clogged; those are usually the culprit when older Egos can't reach decent velocity.
