CO2 usage rate

Unread postAuthor: PainKillaX » Wed Feb 04, 2009 3:48 am

I've been thinking of using a normal CO2 tank, like you would see for paintball (I believe 20 oz), for an inline vortex BBMG. At 80 PSI does anyone have an estimate how many seconds total the gun will fire before there's no gas left?

When the going gets tough, the tough are shooting and the smart are hiding. Where are you?

No where near 20 minutes.

You'd probably be able to unload your gun few times on a fill, but any more than that I can't say for sure.

Thanks that's about what i was hoping. If I haven't put those thousands of rounds to good use I shouldn't be using the dang thing anyway.
