Unread postAuthor: jon_89 » Sun Dec 16, 2007 7:23 pm

does anyone have one that runs off 12g supplies? how many shots per cartridge and how much does the power decrease each shot?

i have a daisy 617x. i hold 6 shots per clip and is semi-auto. i can get about 60 shots per 12 gram co2.

the fist 20 shots are about the same power, then the next 10 are a little lower, then the next 10 are a little lower and so on and so forth until its out. its only the last 15 shots or so that are really under powered.

mine is only accurate enough to hit a can at about 30 feet, even with a rifled barrel and pellets, so don't get it if you expect accuracy, it just fun to plink with.

its starts out at around 400 fps, then to about 350, then to 250... just guessing. its not noticeable between single shots. you have to fire about a dozen to notice any power change at all. its not really something to worry about. co2 pistols are not very powerful or very accurate, they are just for fun.

Most pistols are only good for 80-50 shots per cartridge, depending on how efficient the valve is. Since they're only useful for short range (below 15 yards) shooting, you don't really notice the drop in power.

You can of course also get single shot models like the Crossman 2240 and the Benjamin Sheridan that offer a lower shot count but significantly more power, up to 5 times more powerful compared to some semi-autos.

Or get a 9 mm Drulov Rada ( though ugly) wich will empty the cartridge one gram at a time, meaning only 12 shots.
But good ones...

Not normally recommended as it strains the seals, I prefer to remove the cartridge from my CO<sub>2</sub> guns once I'm done shooting. Also note that the quicker you fire, the quicker the 12 gram capsule cools leaving you with less shots per fill and power. This means that with slow, deliberate shots you'll get more shots per capsule than emptying magazines in rapid succession.

True, very true.

I was referring to the one with the long barrel.
God knows I hate long barrels when it comes to looks..

The top one looks good, except for the stock.I'd remove that too.

Dennis Quackenbush used to have some interesting high calibre conversions for Crosman pistols if single shot high power is your thing, have a look here.

Would require a custom made plug for the bulb housing, but that would look sweet!

I was going to, but you scare me :oops: :D

I mean, you'd think someone with a face like that wouldn't need a ridiculously overpowered BBMG to be intimidating :D

You forgot Overkill and a sawed-off.

And then some...( not allowed)

It is the most "redneck" picture I have. :D

Anyway...my advise would be: get the DRULOV and modify as shown :D
