What's the best setup for a TPX remote line

I want to walk onto the field with a bunch of mags and my TPX and not have to change CO2's. I don't like the tank pouch on the middle of my back. I'm hoping to stay super light and as close as possible to a real hand gun feel.

I already have the TPX and the remote line connection installed on it. I don't have a remote line or a bottle yet.

I'd like to stay pretty light and maybe get a very small bottle. Maybe just enough to shoot about 10 mags.

PBNation, what do you suggest?

A 13ci bottle worn on the front could do it if you don't belly crawl too much. That'll give you about 100-120 shots per fill.

Good idea. Thanks. Anyone else?

A 4oz Co2 is pretty small and should easily get 10 mags.

Use the 12 ounces, as you get 3 mags (7 round) easily, and then connect to your remote line. The tipx holds a charge when you connect your remote line, so you could literally connect it to charge it, then disconnect it, then shoot a mag with it disconnected, then connect it again when you reload the next mag, and repeat. I found I was getting 6 good shots with mine disconnected, but I haven't chrono'd it to see what the drop off is...

That way you don't add any extra weight, and you can still use it without the remote line. Unless you just don't want to worry about air, or get in a sticky situation, you can just leave it connected to your remote line.

The argument has always been HPA is better and more consistent. But I hear of people running into issues using that with the TIPX
How consistent are they using C02?

Hmmm...
One thought I had is that you could almost modify a shoulder holster to hold a 13/30 and use that new RAP4 ultralight remote run through your sleeve. That'd be the lightest possible setup I can think of. I run my T8 with a low-profile CamelBak on my back and a remote run over my shoulder, that seems to work pretty well.

I heard the same issues regarding HPA but I didn't run into those problems myself. Not sure what's different between my stock TiPX (and others) with the ones that are inconsistent. Maybe it's HP vs LP regs on the tanks? Not sure.

Regarding the extra shots when the remote line is disconnected, it'll hold it's charge when your remote adapter has the check valve installed but it will degas if it's not in there. Just FYI if you try FreeEnterprise's tip

no such thing as best.

just whatever you like using most.

I personally think making the tipx as air efficient as possible and just running it with 12gs is the way to go since running a remote kind of defeats the purpose of a small and convenient sidearm that is out of the way and useful as a versatile "oh ****!" weapon.


or in my case, a hideable primary for when I go melee mode.

There is a velocity issues when using hpa. Tipx defiantly likes Co2 over hpa.
