HP or LP tank? Sorry Noob

Hey Guys,

Been outta the sport since 07, I just picked up a Karni with an E2 frame. I also bought a Ninja 68/4500 LP tank.

My question is, will it run off the LP or do I need HP? I've done lots of reading and the answers seem to be all over the place. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

The LP tank should be fine. A cocker that is tuned well can run on their SLP tanks.

Test your HPR and the tank output, to ensure no drop-off you should have the tank output, depending on what school of thought you follow, at least 150 PSI over the marker's OP or 50% over the marker's OP (which in most 'cockers comes to about the same thing).

Say your marker runs at 280 PSI, you'd want your tank to output at least 420 PSI if you're going with 50% or 430 PSI if you're going for the 150 PSI differential (most LP tanks are 450 PSI output).

I always shoot for 200PSI over the operating pressure.

You basically either run a LP tank to its limit, or you hardly test the endurance of your HP output.

Awesome guys, thanks so much for the information, it's getting tech'd right now by pbmarkertech.com. But as soon as it gets back I'll give her a go I can't wait.
