There is no such thing as a sniper in paintball.

LP Kit is a waste of money, has no real bonuses for how much it costs.

Expansion chambers allow the CO2 more time to expand so that the liquid CO2 doesn't get into your gun and mess up orings.

Right on the money.

The LPK contains a volumizer chamber, a higher flow valve, a lightened rear bolt, and uhh...a rear cocking assembly. It will require the purchase of a regulator which further adds to the cost.

Is it worth the cost? In my opinion, no. No it isn't.
What it does is redesign the gun to run at a lower pressure. This really has little advantage.


Now the expansion chamber kit, that might be worthwhile if you use CO2. It allows the CO2 to expand like balla said in his post. Now liquid CO2 isn't the horrible thing everyone says it is, BUT when you are feeding your gun a mix of liquid and gas CO2 you will have velocity problems, which in turn cause bad accuracy.

The LP kit is not worth the $$$ though i do feel that it will give you some advantages. More consistancy, a little less kick, and better efficency. But the price is not worth it. Your better off just putting an expansion chamber on it and than buying a new gun next year or so if you want to spend money.
