HPA in a bud orr

Hi. I've been out of playing for about 8 years and I've decided to get back into playing and dust off my bud. I'm reading a lot about HPA and was wondering if it was possible/worth converting to HPA.
I'm not sure if it matters but it was given to me 16 years ago. I'm not sure the actual build date.

Thanks for any help you all can give.

HPA is a much better option than CO2 in pretty much every way since it is simply a compressed gas while CO2 exists in the tank as a volatile liquid which must become gas somewhere along in the gun. CO2 will net a few more shots on a comparatively sized tank but that's it. HPA is more consistent and versatile, and you can buy a steel HPA tank for like 40 bucks new anyway.

yes you can use hpa tank instead of co2. hpa is probably the best upgrade for a gun given that you can use it on any gun. the output pressure of co2 and hpa are virtually the same.

CO2 is a little higher. More like 800-1100 psi, depending on temperature.

HPA is better all around. If your marker is real oldschool and unregulated, I'd look at getting a reg and spring kit.

Another question. My ninja tank has a reg on it. Does that work or do I need to add one to the gun directly?

Your ninja reg will output 750-900psi (typically 850, ninjas are very consistent)
Your gun CAN handle that, but it wont function well. You need an inline reg to drop that pressure to 350ish.
