NightKast Autococker PSI?

So my friend bought a Nightkast and he only used it like 3 times and it's still in great condition and I'm considering buying it since he's willing to cut me a deal. I thought someone told me in order to play with it though, I'd need an HPA tank which I am perfectly willing to buy. My question is though, I can't seem to find anywhere on the internet what PSI the cocker shoots at. And online I find there's the low pressure and high tanks and I don't know which to get. He has an HPA tank himself, but I looked at it and I could not find anywhere on the tank saying whether it was low or high pressure.

Thanks in advance.

Here's a picture of the model gun

Just get a hp tank and your good to go! Autocockers run on about 350 op so 850 is perfect! I always like to run double input pressure in my autocockers.

But doesn't double input pressure give you like 1/3 of the shots you would usually get?

nope, the regulator on the gun drops the pressure to somewhere around 350 psi. a good rule of thumb is usually to have your tank putting out 150-200 psi higher than your operating pressure, so while a well tuned cocker that's set up for low pressure operation could probably work with a LP tank, HP is a safer bet. less chance of shootdown at higher rates of fire that way.

Well the less tinkering I have to do the better. So the HP looks like the better option now.

If anyone else has more feedback, I'm still listening
