Adrenalin Imp

i took out my Adrenalin Imp yesterday to my local field. originally i had it set at about 140psi, but had to kick it down to about 115-120psi, which i thought was very low, but it was consistent over the chrono (280-290fps range). it was not warm (65 degrees) and i was using HPA. btw im running a NDZ rip valve, NDZ stainless heavy hammer, NDZ equalizer bolt (5inch), NDZ slik shot, and stock ram housing, and i was getting between 500-700 shots on my 47/3000 steelie. so i guess my question is it normal for an imp with those aforementioned upgrades to run that low and efficiently? and no i do not have an LPR! pics of said marker (just for gun whoring purposes):

btw, i think the check valve that comes stock on the adrenalins might have something to do with it...

There are a plethora of Imp owners with NDZ internals that run near or at that low PSI. All it means, is you have a great setup, or your gauge is off.

Yeah, people thought it was crazy that I was running my Imp as low as I was. 110psi input, 85psi LPR, 6ms dwell. I didn't even believe it until I tested my regs with a digital gauge.

May the road rise up to meet you, and the wind be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And may you someday die of natural causes rather than an auto-erotic asphyxiation accident, staged by a secret society of ninja assassins.

this makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside... the gauge is brand new, so the gun is definitely at 115-120psi. i forgot that these guns came with the check valves which operate as an LPR of some sort (not too sure on the physics of this) but i am glad i can now squeeze as much as i can out of my 47/3000. and boy is it smooth and quiet.

I've had 7 Impulses I can think of from the top af my head and they operated anywhere between 110-150. I also had an Adrenalin with no LPR and I kept it on a short dwell and never had to turn it above 130 psi to get good velocity. It had the ss hammer but the stock firing assembly with a PE high flow valve. Impulses were (are) great guns with great efficiency, consistancy, and accuracy. Everyone talks like they're huge or something, but take out the 1/2 inch tall board tray and they are no bigger than the guns on the market today iff you got a pl Impulse thats milled down a little.

back when i was in high school (7 yrs ago) i had a stock bodied vision impulse and i had the whole evil line and aka sidewinder, and i was running it at 140psi, so when i took out my adrenalin this past weekend, 115psi seemed a bit low, but i had no problems whatsoever, and it was super consistent. i knew i made the right choice going back to the impulse... and whoever says theyre too bulky or heavy, by today's standards yes, but since i just got back into paintball, these guns still rock in my opinion. thanks for the responses guys.
