Don't think you can get them under $30, I think they're more about $50.

But with the 12 grams you will mabey get 1 chamber fill too 100psi if you have a small enough chamber. I don't have any experience with regulated co2 but you diffenetly should go with a paintball tank and spend the $60-$70 on a reg for that because they cost like a dollar to fill and you can get a decent amount of shots off them.Or you could even more preferably get a bulk co2 tank and reg but that is really expensive.

It's more like $3-5 to fill a 20oz CO2 tank...

You can get a good regulator for about $50-80.... The better end being around $75...

When working with CO2, a blow-out safety valve is almost necessary.... If your reg blows, you have 800-3000 psi rushing in PVC pipe... not good to say at least.

A 20oz tank should be $20 or less... One with an On\Off valve would be easier to use...

i've also heard that some people make their own outta some pipe, springs, etc.
but i'd just be safe and buy a professional one, 50 bucks won't set you back very far in terms of getting a car

The best you can hope for, is that you will find a table that shows how much room CO2 gas takes up at 100psi at a certain temperature, then you need to find out the volume of the 20oz tank, compared to your chamber and work out how many times it will fill to that PSI.

Edit: Beaten, that's exactly what you need.

well maxfreak, beacuse your a cannon noob, it will depend on how big your chamber is. therefore if you find out how big your chaber is in ounces. for example, say your chamber can hold one ounce of air at 1psi, just multiply and youll be able to figure it out

but doesn't co2's liquid characteristics change the gas storing capability's thus making the equation inadequate for the job specified. For example a 20oz co2 canister can hold 20oz's of liquid co2 but **oz of gas :shock: :tongue3:
