  1. I'm currently doing research to finalize my long-overdue plans of converting my Tanaka rifle to use HPA. There's plenty of information out there for me to chug along alright, but I always make a point of coming here to other airsoft snipers to gather sage opinions in hopes of making the optimal choices with zero regret or second-guessing. I have a lot of options in front of me it seems, and I'd like to get much better acquainted with them in every respect. Some questions in my mind include: Should I simply buy the necessary individual parts and build the rig, or purchase something more pre-built? What is necessary, and what is optional? How can I build the absolute smallest rig possible? What key aspects of HPA rigging should I focus on- what is a gimmick and what is performance-related? At this stage, I'm somewhere between capable of converting to HPA successfully, and fully understanding the matter at hand and all the nuances. I would like to become more educated. I apologize if this post seems a bit vague, and that I could educate myself further with Google-ing alone, but it's hard to ignore the reality that the most ideal resource available to me on this subject is other airsoft snipers who've gone through the exact situation I am currently in. I tend to stay on the vague side in hopes of eliciting the most information plausibly reasonable. Some very specific questions I have: About how many shots can I get out of a 13 cubic inch tank? (I understand this may vary drastically) Are there tanks smaller than 13 cubic inch- about how many shots would they provide? Around what PSIs would I be using to fire between 400 and 600-800 FPS [assuming .2g BB]? (I'm only curious about extremely high power output for testing range limits on targets- I also understand my bucking would be in danger by pushing the limits of power) Am I correct in thinking the gauge on an HPA tank is part of a regulator? Am I correct in thinking that this gauge depicts the PSI pressure inside the tank and that when it falls below the final output of your regulator, you will not fire? Am I correct in thinking some (or all?) airsoft HPA builds require two regulators- one on the tank, with another super low pressure (SLP?) regulator for reasonable power output? Where are trusty outlets for buying the necessary parts? What pre-builds are worth purchase? Are there any other valuable resources such as the following which I should read? http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/topic/127562-constructing-an-air-rig-56k-death/ http://www.airsoftsniperforum.com/44-others/10925-ultimate-kjw-m700-upgrade-guide.html http://www.airsoftsniperforum.com/32-general-sniper-talk/9841-airsoft-gases-external-gas-rigs.html Again, apologies if these seem like silly questions; feel free to hit me with a rolled up newspaper by simply posting a link to more information for me to read over :) Thanks for any help!
