    Posted: 04 September 2006 at 8:36pm

I have an A-5 with the response trigger. With CO2 it works, but not nearly as well as my response trigger worked on my 98. Now I bought an HPA tank and discovered that it doesn't really work at all . . . every once in a while it works for a couple of shots, and then just quits. I have check with leaks by turning the adjustment screw all the way in and found that it is holding pressure. . .

Do the RTs not like HPA?

I have R\T on my Tippmann and just used Anti-Siphon C02.. I have yet to have problems.. I don't think you need a new hose the stock one works fine. And NO R\Ts do NOT like HPA, If you look around you will see many problems with them and Nitrogen, even with C02 that has 8-Stage EXP Chambers. The liquid that under rapid fire get's sucked into them is supposed to help quite a bit which is why I got anti-siphon'd c02 because under rapid fire liquid still gets in there.

Since you state that it does not work as it really should, with either CO2 or HPA, there is clearly a problem. Pressure is pressure, whether from CO2 or HPA. I can't give you a solution for this malfunction because I don't use the RT, but don't let HPA get the blame as the culprit. I play with many who use HPA with their RT equipped A-5. I have not heard them complain.

Quite the opposite here.. I've heard of countless complaints with the R\T and HPA.. one guy said even the Tippmann rep that visited his store agreed that the R\T works better with C02.

I am looking into some leaks in the orings in the flow connector bolt. . . I have eliminated about all the other options (accept the larger hoses). The curious thing is that the R/T on my A-5 works fine with the HPA. My son's does not. I tried putting my trigger assemly on his marker and it did not work, so the problem appears to be airflow between the main valve and the trigger assembly. . . 

Some people have said that Tippmann will give you the larger hoses for free, but they keep telling me I have to purchase them. I am not sure I want to spend $20 and get no noticable improvment. Anybody with firsthand experience with spending that extra money. Did the larger fittings/hoses really help the R/T?

All you need to do is say "I bought a low pressure kit and need the fittings and hoses" they will send you it for free, Larger hoses etc basically make the "Super R\T" which is  faster firing R\T... I can't see it fixing your problem.. but I could be wrong.

Oh, golly! I guess I must have contradicted RevoXT. Then again, I am out here actually playing with people whose markers are functioning and just can't hear, over the noise of the game, all those complaints about the incompatibility of the RT with HPA...especially from that store-visiting rep who's in a hurry to finish the day and get back to the hotel bar.

I used an RT with HPA for years.
It worked better by FAR with HPA than CO2.
My gun would freeze solid when using CO2. My old saying was borrowed from a Christmas Classic..."this 98 would freeze up on the fourth of July on the Equator"

Once I got HPA I never looked back. I had it tuned to about 14bps and could hold the trigger until it emptied a 88/4500 bottle. Thats about 1300 shots for you that "don't Habla the new math".

So whomever is telling you that RTs don't like HPA are full of crap. HPA is the best thing you can do for your RT.
That being said....
You obviously have an issue with your RT...it is a flow problem more than likely.
Check all your fittings, check to be sure that nothing is clogging the works. Mine stopped working altogether because a small piece of teflon tape got into the air line. Anything that slows the airflow can decrease the PSI to the RT piston.
And make sure you are using a high pressure output bottle (the higher the better).
And...the larger hoses can't hurt anything...they can only help.
