looking into c02 for my marble cannon

Unread postAuthor: djt » Tue Jul 11, 2006 8:08 pm

i want to start by saying i know next to nothing about c02 regulation. i would like to look into it for my marble rifle. now considering i dont know anything about c02 or c02 regulaiton i first would like to find out if it is even worth it for my cannon. how many shots do you think i could get of one 20oz c02 tank at 80-100 psi?

if i cant get to many shots out of a tank its almost not worth it for me because i will never be able to get rides to the PB store to get the tanks filled whenever i shoot it (alot). if i can get a pretty good amount of shots i will look into it a little more and learn about regulators and how to set it all up.

You'll get plenty of shots.I just don't think your cannon is worth an upgrade like that...

turn the elbow holding the valve and you'll have a better balanced gun.

its kind of hard to get a good range estimate because i use clear marbles. unless i shoot it at 10 psi i have no clue where they go. at 10 psi it goes about 200-300 feet. and yea i probably wouldnt ever get around to it anyway. not really worth it. it would just be cool to be able to fill it quickly and shoot marbles out of a magazine or something. the reason i didnt turn the elbow it because i wanted to be able to aim it and hold it like a rifle.

If you want to hold it like a rifle..shape the chamber like a rifle stock!
