co2 tire inflator

Unread postAuthor: jon_89 » Thu Oct 25, 2007 7:55 pm

has anyone used a co2 tire inflator for bike tires? when you pull the trigger is it regulated or not? do you have any control of how much comes out? if it is regulated could i use a bigger co2 tank? thanks

Hey
I have one, it is crap lol. It is unregulated, but it comes out a very small hole. It comes out cold and possibly in liquid form so it can freeze PVC. The canisters are expensive too. It wont work on a bigger tank, different thread sizes and workings.

On my one you just push down to make it come out and you let go to stop flow.

As Marco said, they are not regulated. Your best bet for a cannon would be to use a 12g quick change adapter, found at most online or local paintball stores.
