bbmg power source question

Unread postAuthor: goodlunch » Sun May 15, 2011 7:37 pm

hello i just recently finished my bbmg and i want to make it portable. My current plan is to get a 20 oz co2 tank with the kolbat co2 regulator i would post a link but im not sure how to. My question is if i set the psi 100 will the co2 tank last long enough for a practical day of play which for me is around 4 hours and in that time i proably cycle through 6000 bbs. im asking this because im short on money and i dont want to spend a fourtune on refils. Im sorry if this question has been answered because ive been searching everywhere for one. Thanks ahead of time!

Ive never actually used one but I think I read one guy was getting about 2000 rounds per tank.

my 3000 psi HPA tank will last aprox 3.5 minuets of continuous firing at a regulated 80psi.

the metal parts get VERY cold and form ice. so constant firing is NOT recommended without a metal air tank/breech/vortex block.

pvc is very temperature sensitive, and prone to shattering at cold temps. DO NOT use pvc in a HPA or Co2 cannon, or, if you do, limit the firing of full auto bursts to a few seconds at most.

Hope that helps.

I recommend a palmers female stabilizer. Better quality, 0-700 psi, same price

Ask irisher.

I recommed looking through the wiki and this thread in order to optimise the efficiency of your BBMG and getting the most of your shots - if you can get a launcher to give you the performance you want at 50 psi instead of 100, that's already a massive increase in shots per tank.

If only such a thing existed!

Oh wait...

thanks for the help so far guys but i got another issue you guys might be able to help me with. i got a adapter from asa to 1/4 inch male hes also offering to sell me a 3000 psi hpa tank with a output of 400 psi i just so happen to have a regulator that will fit on to this. unfortuntly i discovered something of concern when looking at the stats of the regulator it said its maxxium psi is 160 this confuses me becuase it regulates 0-160 psi so does that mean it cant handle more the 160 psi or that it can only allow that psi through it?

I don't think that's the sort of reg you're looking for, it seems to regulate airflow rather than pressure if you catch my drift.

This is the type you're looking for.

I would say play it safe and go for a paintball reg.

I use dual fire extinguishers, unregulated at 150 psi it will shoot for 20 seconds.
