dont know exactly what your trying to say but i will take a stab at it...

Tippmann says your not supposed to use Co2 on the LPK (Low Pressure Kit). I know of a few people who will not touch Co2 with the LPK installed and there are others who use it only once in a while. My recomendation is to try and stay away from using Co2 if at all possible and stick with the HPA source. This will be sure to give your LPK a good chance at lsting longer then if you were to run Co2 through it.

I'm also not quite sure on the question.

If it's an overall LPK issue though, have you installed a regulator? The kit doesn't come with one that I know of, and it must be bought seperatly.

CO2 would be a bad idea for a couple reasons off hand. It's high pressure, so you would need a CO2 tolerant regulator to drop the pressure down to the ~400psi range the LPK wants. An Anti-siphon or remote would also be a good plan. If liquid were to get past the reg, it would expand in the LPK chambers and throw the velocity for a spike. Also some or most CO2 fills will have a dirty sludge come from it. Although not a serious problem, it will build up on surfaces and with the LPK there's just more to clean.

You can.

It's not the best thing to do. Like we said, you need a regulator that will tolerate the CO2, and anti-siphon or a remote would also help.

The LPK was designed for HPA users who were not happy with high pressure operation.
