need help converting to lp

i need help on what exactly i need for a l p setup ( Co2) without buying the whole kit.

i was thinking of buying the vert adapter with the hole for lp chamber, and the chamber and pure energy reg.

what is the lowest pressure with lightend bolt i know the without lighting its 800 psi. and would the lp chamber do anything if i get it before i get a reg??




my biggest question is it worth it? exactly how much quiter is it and how much more accurate?


oh and is there a Lp mainSpring??


THanx a bunch

i tried drilling my bolt to make it ligther but that metal is HARD!! so i would like to see if i could just buy the light weight bolt and spring from tippmann

actualy country paintball sells the vert adapter with t end for 26 and the low pessure chamber for 11 i think

oh and if you get tippmann to sell you the lighter bolt and spring post it or pm me


and if i bought the lp chamber without a reg for awile what good would it do?

Ummm, I don't believe that the LP chamber will do any benefit with CO2. If anything, it can possibly actually hurt your performance.

why would you want to siphon liquid co2????? you want to do everything possible to keep liquid out of the system not intentionaly draw it into your system.

Same here. I would love to save some money by doing some mods myself rather than pay more than I have to for the Tippmann kit.
