I've been looking for a good deal on a used CZ/AA 200 to have as a nice backyard 12fpe gun, but I'm starting to entertain the idea of a QB running off of a regulated HPA tank and possibly saving some cash in the process if they perform well.

Is there somewhere I can go like a "HPA QB for Dummies" to find out exactly what I need, or is it as simple as getting someting like the Ninja 13ci. tank and an adapter to go on the end of the QB tube?

Also, what would be the best way to achieve something between 10-12fpe in .177 cal?

Thanks

... in stock form will be right at 12FPE. I have one and absolutely love it. Great plinker and I get about 100 shots on a full charge. They are on sale for $79 with tune.

... you will have to remove the barrel to install the bottle because the fill adapter and gage won't clear. Other than that it is basically plug & play.

Replace the transfer port while you are in there with poly tube or o-ring and mine shoots right at 850FPS with 7.9 grain CPHPs for 12.6FPE.
