Ive had the same empire tank with an 800psi output for ever basically so im kinda clueless
Hey nodnarb, here's some info that might help you out if you're looking for a good size tank and need some info on our regulators and output pressures:
In order to find the right size tank for you, you have to consider how tall you are and how much air you need for your marker and which style of play you prefer. Here's a good way to tell if a tank is a good "length" for you. Screw your air system into your marker. Hold the marker by the grip in one hand and point the marker like youre going to shoot, with your arm stretch out straight. If the back of the tank reaches the inside of your elbow, that is generally a good size for you, ergonomically-speaking.
Also consider your style of play. If you play scenarios/big games, you might want a larger tank so you dont have to fill air as much. If you play tournaments, you might want the lightest possible setup that doesnt run out of air during your matches.
In regards to our regulators, you have 2 choices that will work on an NT. You can use our adjustable reg and remove 2 red shims to get the pressure down to about 500psi. The reg is fully adjustable out of the box without the need to buy a spring kit to change it. This means you can tailor or "optimize" your regs output pressure to your marker. Using optimal input pressures can sometimes produce less kick on a marker, less wear and tear on an hpr since its only regulating 500-550psi down instead of 800-850psi, sometimes you can also get more shots out of the tank but this depends on a lot on ball/bore match on your barrel, weather, etc).
Your other option is our SMP550, designed specifically for these markers:
and just about every other mid range or high end marker (except the G6r and Victory which are super low pressure markers). At 550psi, we found that pressure to be "optimal" for the NT. That means at 550psi, your marker should operate correctly no matter which board settings you use or which upgrades you decide to put on your marker.
I hope this information helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to shoot me a pm and i'll do my best to help
