for the size of tank CO2 gets way more shots.... a 20oz CO2 tank is around the same shots as like a 70/4500 which is way bigger

I never got the same amount from CO2 compared to compressed air. Dunno why.

Would I need to get a anti siphon tube or can I just use it normal?

"Protection provided by the Vibe's all-new Max Flow R Vertical Regulator means that it is safe from the dangers of liquid CO2."

You don't need a Anti-Siphon.

Co2
20oz-1000shots
12oz-600shots
9oz-400shots

Remember those are rough estimates. All guns vary, but do remember, Co2 lowers the output pressure as it is removed from the bottle.
Your first shot will be the most powerful shot and it ranks down from there.
HPA is the same, every shot, so, I prefer HPA, and if you play at fields, its cheaper to fill.
Tanks are expensive but if you have a heavy set-up or don't care about weight, you can get a inexpensive steel tank.

We have seen over 1400 shots on a 20oz in testing in warm weather and a full fill. We even fired a Model 98 as fast as we could, froze the tank, and then the gun sputtered out like it was out of air. We then took the CO2 tank off and put it on an SP1 (similar to a vibe), and shot an additional 400 rounds until velocity dropped. Obviously, weather will effect how many shots you get as well.

I sense you aren't a fan of Tippys somehow from your posts....

At least it's nice to know noobies will have a fun time with the Vibe, instead of the lovely sputtering I have seen all too often.

I like tippmanns. They are just the same gun that came out in 1998. Nothing really innovative since then except in the area of propane. The Vibe and SP1 area really innovative at the price that they are at. Spool valve technology in an entry level gun... whowhuddathunkit?

Very true. They are very similar. I think that all the new SP markers systems are based off the Ion though. I'd really love a new high end from SP, instead of the guns that don't appeal to me. But then again, the more cheap, easy to use guns, the more people can play for less money and with good experiences. I guess I'm just picky.

Christmas countdown= Vibe maulin' muppets!! Ooh Ha Ha!!

Now some "chinese" and some American CO2 tanks don't have the 1/8" N.P.T. female threaded in the pin valve adapter. Anti siphon gives more consistancy because of utilizing the vapor, if you install or turn on your bottle with the marker barrel up, 95% of your shots should be consistant(IMHO). Greeat thread !!!!!

Rebecca does free stickers.. not me. lol.. But when I send out small part for people, I always throw in free stickers.

How old are you anyways? If you are over 21, then we must go out for a drink some day. Or you can crash our Christmas Party this weekend in Latrobe. It is over by Rolling Rock.
