That's the model ICS supply with their guns.  No RS equivalent AFAIK.

Viper MOLLE belt in black - £8 off a mate

Set of thermal long johns - £10 eBay

Belt is to replace my last one which has now given up the ghost. Long johns are in preparation for cold nights/days at a milsim I'm going to.
Nothing quite says "SURPRISE!" like a shotgun.

No because you can get away with playing soldier still :)

I prefer the dressing up as opposed to naked airsoft  :)

Trying to decide this vs the GHK m4. Love the look of the GHK but the reliability of HPA has won me over. Hope I made the right choice!

HPA all the way - if you can afford it and can put up with the hose then functionally it's unmatched. I miss my GBBR stuff, but consistent muzzle energy even in the cold is why I'm sticking with it now.

 

What regulator did you go with?

I went the "cop out" easy route and just got the package deal from JD airsoft. So it comes with a "Proto 48cu 3k Air System" which has a preset regulator I believe.

Ah, I see. The Tippmann is somewhat unique in that it has an inbuilt regulator and can step down 3000psi to the usable 120-ish internally (unlike Polarstar, SMP and others which need a regulator on the tank to step down the 3k or 4.5k to a usable 100-120psi). *Actually only low is regulated rather than pressure. See below.

 

Should be good. The hose is a bit thicker as you'd expect.

Cheers for the info. My only concern at the moment is where im going to fill up the tank exactly. There's a few scuba shops in Bristol so I can try those. I've heard some people use a special hand pump for about an hour and that fills up the tank....Atleast I can get fit that way I guess.

I have a hand pump and also a refill tank. I can link you to a place to get the handpump as some people are paying extortionate amounts for theirs. I bought mine directly from China from a factory that makes the Air Venturi ones. Will PM you tomorrow when I grab the link.

The proper Krytac 30k motor for my DMR build to replace the lower spec 20k motor in the UK Krytacs.

WOWZERS, the 30k motor is worlds apart from the OE 20k motor, gonna be awesome on the field :-)

Most bottles (except SLP) have a step down regulator built in and output 800psi, (which is the tippmann running pressure) it has no inbuilt pressure regulator, the fps control is achieved by a grub screw obscuring the air path to the nozzle.

Ninja/fire base etc regs all step down from 800psi to what ever you set them too

Things i am after :-

 

TM FA-MAS parts! (hop, flash hider assembly, and trigger guard)

FA-MAS hi caps!

Anything that regulates the pressure is a regulator and it's the internal nature of this on the Tippmann that makes is kind of unique. To all intents and purposes it runs in the same way that their paintball guns do - through regulating a higher input so you don't need anything but an ASA and hose. The issue obviously being that the lines are rated for up to 2000psi, and that means a lot of rigidity compared to the braided lines other systems can use that work below 200psi.

 

A secondary issue I take with the Tippman system is that - because of its overly-simple regulator - it doesn't work well at lower pressures so you don't get the longevity out of your tank like you might with the newer Red Line one that's coming out later this month. Once you get below 1000psi you're going to notice the system starving for air as there's not enough pressure for the line to act as an expansion chamber of sorts. The bore being so narrow in the coil doesn't help with this, and it's a pretty greedy gun in terms of air consumption so this does pose a bit of a problem.

 

You're correct on the Firebase and Ninja of course. Just not really seeing your point on the regulator I guess :S

It dosnt regulate pressure, it regulates flow ;)

It uses the same bottles. Which are 800psi output, not 3k.

Ok I see what you mean now. Thanks.

 

Also I'm talking about the internal pressure of the tank, not the pressure that comes out of the tank reg - as you know, that can be 300-850psi before the regulator. I purely mentioned 2k because that's what the lines are rated for, but I don't know of a tank regulator that comes preshimmed above 850psi.

 

Any idea what the lowest pressure is that you can use with it?
