depends on the project and goal.
stock class, unregged.
hopper fed with a tank, regged, makes for a much smoother pump action..

Unregged CO2 (preferably a vert 3.5 tank).

Because I'm a traditionalist (and I sold all of my O2 tanks).

Oh yeah, and it makes the women swoon too. ;)

I run 45/3000 steel tank with a real Myth reg. My 68/4500 tank with a real Myth reg seemed overkill.

You are referring to the tank reg?

HP, but both will work since my gun is regged.

Yes.

I have a Trilogy Pump. The HPR is a CP and I use a Archon hopper.

Thanks,

I run anti-siphoned CO2 with a Palmers Stabilizer because I like to be different. :D I find that CO2 has a higher shot capacity at a lower weight than an HPA setup.

You do realize that HPA is compressed air such as a 45/45 tank and LPA is co2?

Cockers and snipers are capable of being run very well on co2, though HPA is still the standard today for cockers.

i meant the operating pressure sorry for not stating that...

I always called
hp for 850ish compressed
lp was 350ish compressed
and co2 is co2.. lol
then regulated and non regged co2.

Got a Stabilizer for when I run Co2, otherwise its air.

well, if co2 it will change with the temp. compressed would be aprox 850 psi..
you have to respring..
and fyi, the first cockers didn't have regs of any sort...

I run regg'ed co2 on my snipers -- usually 350-400psi

why : weight, easy to get especially when playing outlaw ball, easy to carry 2-3 tanks ready to go, and stable enough.

Palmer says he plays co2 when its not cold 'cause it expands more slowly.

350psi on a sniper lowers the rear spring pressure needed to open the valve - making the pump action easier and smoother. triple this reasons if you like the idea of autotriggering.

350psi is much more quiet than 800psi

350psi sucks in efficiency for 12gram'ers.

350psi is nicer on thin walled balls. (breaks in breach = unheard of)

I play co2 with cp's and sidewinders in non-cold weather, with an antisiphon tank of course .[/
