Compressed air questions

I have a 2003 wgp vertical autococker. I don't currently use compressed air, but want to get a tank. I am going to get an omen this summer, and that operates on low pressure. Does the autococker operate on low or high? I would want a tank that I can use in both the omen and the cocker. Is there anything I can do to make it compatible, if one gun is high and one gun is low pressure?

Since both of the guns you mentioned use regulators that can take high pressure inputs, a high pressure tank would be my choice.

Both guns would probably operate off a low pressure tank, but this way you dont need to worry about possible shoot-down situations.

So you mean that the omen 2.0 will operate perfectly off of a high-pressure tank? Will that be bad for the gun in any way? If not, why do tey call it a low pressure gun?

The Omen has a stock vertical regulator (most markers nowadays do). This means it will take the pressure coming from your tank and drop it down to what your marker needs to fire.

It is in no way "bad" for the gun, the regulator is just doing it's job.

They call it a low pressure gun because it uses a low pressure (~200 psi) to fire the paintball. High pressure guns use a high pressure (~800 psi). HP guns are slightly more effiencent, but break balls easier and USUALLY have more kick.

So the omen will do fine on a high pressure tank?
