Do not use nitro tanks or anything like a hpa tank on your cannon because it will explode. If you dont want to throw the thing out or fix it, use a bike pump and only use 50-60psi. Just dont want your next thread saying "you guys told me it was ok to use nitrogen and my cannon exploded, severing my arm."

Keep the tank until you figure out how to safely assemble a sound pneumatic that can handle it.

What is it with people telling people not to use dwv parts on a pnuematic? Hmm let me think about it THEY CAN BLOW UP he wants to use parts that aren't meant for any pressure and hook it up to a regulated paintball tank. I think people here care and don't want cannons to explode in their faces I think that's why people say that. And why are you telling him not to use an HPA or Nitro tank? If you use a regulator which he said he was planning on using you can make it no more pressure than an air compressor lets out. People don't feel like pumping a lot each time to fire their gun.

My only concern with using the onboard air is that the constant rapid compression/decompression might prove to be dangerous with the use of non-pressure rated parts. And to get his tank to a safe operating pressue would take only a a couple of seconds with a bike pump. And yes, I was looking out for his own safety.

But hey I dont know crap, so dont pay my comments any concern. -.-
