Can A Maglite take unregged co2?

Unread postAuthor: sagthegreat » Sun Mar 02, 2014 10:54 am

I have a maglite coaxial gun, and I was wondering if they could take unregged co2 from one of those bike filler co2 things. Co2 pressure around 800 psi, and the maglite is made of aluminum with a wall thickness of I think 0.09 inches? I would just drape a towel over it and try it myself but I live in a snobby area were everyone is scared of anything that makes loud sounds...

I seriously doubt that 0.090 aluminum wall will even begin to withstand 800 psi.

thats my guess for wall thickness, based on a quick google search. Although i dont know if hes refering to a big maglite or a maglite mini.

This had a wall thickness of 0.02" and survived 850 psi with ease.
