I have a 98c Pro w/ R-T and Cyclone installed. Running everything stock with CO2. When I find the "sweet" spot, am I going to freeze up the gun? I've heard some people say they can almost unload their hoppers and the gun will be covered in ice, but never chop a ball, whereas some say that they run with and anit-siphon etc to make the gun work well. Any suggestions or comments. Obviously I haven't even gotten a chance to shoot off my marker since the mods. So any help is appreciated.

I shot an entire bag of paint with my 98 RT on CO2 once, hopper after hopper until it was gone. I wasn't at a field, I was just unloading old junk paint in my backyard instead of throwing it away.

There was frost everwhere. Nothing broke of course, but I wouldn't make a habbit of doing that.

All tippmann markers including the A-5 with the cyclone will handle straight liquid CO2.

...Wear gloves, cause it's going to get cold. :hug:

I thought I read somewhere here that Tippmanns w/ cyclone and R/T don't run will on HPA.

Came back from balling and didn't have any freeze ups on the R/T and Cyclone combo. It worked great and I'd recommend it to anyone.

The only thing that sucked is when there wasn't enough air and I had to manually use the Cyclone plunger to load rounds.

If your shooting a tippmann HPA is completly unnessisarry. He's simplying saying what "might" happen. Your O-rings will break with time no matter what you use. Tippmanns are one of the best guns with handling CO2, there is no reason to get HPA. An Expansion chamber is all you need.

Regal1975 sounds like your hpa regulator is not working right. Is it a new tank? Old tank? sounds like its got a slow recharge rate. My A5 with e-grip on full auto can dump a whole hopper without missing a beat on HPA.
