i'm building a steel paintball rifle powered by co2, i think rather than spending a bunch of money on a regulator or adapters for small cartridges i'm going to put a schrader on it and buy one of those tire repair things that you put a 16 gram co2 cartridge into a clip that puts the co2 into your tire, or in my case, my chamber.

Do you know how many shots you can get out of 1 c02 cartridge? Wont buying a bunch of them add up in the long run?

Great paint job.

How long is the barrel going to be?

i use 12 grams on one of my cannons, i like it, yeah, itll add up alot in the long run but i think its still nice to use. very compact and everything. but looking at urs i think you over did the chamber, the biggest chamber i have used with 12 grams is 8"

well if you buy the 12 grams online you can buy em in bulk for cheap. the barrel will probably be about 3 feet.

Good work and if you notice the ball valves sticking or hard to turn some WD-40 works good, made mine open really easy. But ya unless you use a tank you went overkill on the chamber.
