Angel GAT, low pressure tank?

Hey guys I'm just getting back into paintball after a few years and I picked up a angel gat for cheap. Now do I need a low pressure tank for this beast? 45/3000 Or 68/3000? From my understanding if you use a 45/4500 ect.. You will damage the internals. Is this true?

Thanks guys!

Not damage so much as not be able to get proper velocities. Bob Long's more recent guns are the ones that freak out/blow out if HP goes into them. If you don't have any option but HP input, you can get a CP adaptor, throw on whatever reg you want, and run the HP input.

I could be wrong on the damage bit, but my experiences were more "can't get above 220fps with 800psi input" on the LP series of guns.

The 45/4500, 68/3000, 45/300, ect has no affect on the internals. That just describes the size of the tank. It matters what the output pressure of the reg on the tank is. To answer your question you need a low pressure tank if the gun has the stock reg on the gun. If its an aftermarket reg on the gun then you would most likely be able to use a high pressure tank.

^Intern1 is correct. You've confused bottle pressure with output pressure.

You want a tank with low or mid pressure (450-650 psi) ideally, but you can use HP if you either perform the mini-reg spring stack mod or use an aftermarket regulator.

Cool thanks for the info guys. And yeah my bad I'm getting the tank size and actual pressure confused durrrrr. And the GAT has the stock reg on it so a LP tank it is. Or actually what would you guys recommend? Just using a LP tank or doing the CP reg and running HP? what are the pros and cons?

If you're buying a new tank anyway, definitely make it LP, or snag a Ninja reg, which is shim-adjustable from LP to HP. There are no upsides to running a HP tank when you don't have to

I'll second the Ninja reg. I can go from 400 to 800 psi output with the changing of some shims in my Pro. Very nice regs.

Awesome thanks a lot for re info guys. I'll keep an eye out for a ninja reg but I'll probably end up just getting a LP tank for the time being. Thanks again for the help!

Honestly there's no reason to buy a HP tank anymore unless your shooting a automag. Everything worth shooting takes a LP reg just fine.

Well... there's a few of us who do have guns that want that 800psi input. I don't think my Trracer would like 400psi. Then again, I'm working on having two Ninja regs - one set to 800, one set to 400.

That's not true, the LCD's are high pressure and are still worth shooting.
