8gram Co2 Canisters

Unread postAuthor: Mitchy » Sun Dec 03, 2006 6:55 am

Hey guys,

Was wanting to know of if there was any way to use those co2 canisters as a propellant? Whats the best way of fitting them to an over under gun? Is it possible to fit a regulator so that you can get a few shots out of one bulb.

I tried searching but found to many results sorry...

You'll have to buy a 8 gram Co2 Quick-Change Adapter from somewhere. You can buy them for 15 bucks from <a href="www.paintballguys.net"> PaintballGuys.net </a>, they're probably in the air accessories section.

I don't think people use 8 grams for paintball...12 grams are a different story.

I'm pretty sure you can still get the same thing.

Most people use 12 grams because they are liek the bare min. for prepelent. A 12 gram will get 20 shots out of a paintball pistol (decent one), less on others, 20 is not a lot...

Thanks Guys.

I'm in Australia where i cant get any paintball items because a gun license is needed.

So could i use the soda siphon top cap. Where the soda bulbs push into and mod that to fit into a small tank?

What pressure is in the co2 8gram tanks.

Thanks

Co2 liquidizes at 800-900 psi, the cartridges are anywhere between that and 2000 psi.
