Compatibility Questions

I was asked the following questions about my CCM Series 5 cocker in sig.

1) would a HPA tank with an output pressure of 480psi work? I thought yes, with adjustments to the HPR as the tank output is higher than the needed operational pressure. But was asked to confirm.

2) would this pump kit, 7c03 work properly on the gun? I also thought yes as it is a 2000+ model kit and so is the gun.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

No, you will end up starving the reg with low pressure.

Yes, any 2k+ kit will work.

since yours is a mech you might be able to get away with low pressure, cockers run closer to 350psi so it can be pretty close. only way to really find out is try. if it was an e-cocker i agree it would definately be starved for air even at 15bps.

The general rule of thumb is a minimum of 200PSI over your operating pressure.

My STO's sweetspotted at 280PSI, so 480 would be right on the bubble. However, since it's a mech, chances are it wont cause problems with starving.

Though it's better to have it and not need it. A big expansion chamber would help a ton.

I actually purchased it, and plan on turning it into a pump. I a assuming that the 480 would still be fine? I have the ninja pro reg, so it can always be adjusted.

I'd say it'd work fine for a pump as you are not rapid firing what-so-ever.

I run my T2 on a Ninja reg with all the shims taken out, never had any issues starving the marker. Ninjas and most modern tanks recharge fast enough these days that there isn't much risk of starving the gun at normal ROF.

That wasn't always the case however which is why people recommend HP tanks for everything that doesn't specifically require LP. Back in 2005 or so most tanks didn't have the recharge to keep up at 15+ bps so the extra pressure the HP tanks put out gave some buffer room. Now though with a good reg you don't need to worry.
This line is in remembrance of Jared Wilson, friend and paintball teammate who died on 7/27/2005.
