So instead of an air feed, you feed it with a CO2 supply?
Possible, but there are some drawbacks:

-Cost. A BBMG is VERY inefficient and wastes are like no other. This makes CO2 expensive and rather impracticable.
-Safety. Unregulated CO2 will create up to 800psi, which can blow up most chambers. Make sure to regulate it and seriously spend a few bucks on that popoff valve.
-Temperature. Also a point of safety. The cold CO2 freezes stuff up sometimes, which makes things brittle.

The only good point of using CO2 would be:
-Free portability

maybe you would need to ditch PVC for this project and get a regulator too.... i would reccomend pressure rated ABS if you can get it as it doesn;t become brittle with the cold and it doesn;t shatter either.

I think you misspelled "pressure rated ABS." It is supposed to be spelled like this: "Metal."
I can guarantee that you will not find any plastic pipe that will hold 800psi, at any decent size

Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

With any unregged CO2 setup:
Metal is a must.

Regulated CO2 does not make much sense to me.
Why use PVC and 150 psi if you can use metal and use 4 times that? :D
