Question about Co2 magizine

Am I the only one who is getting 7 shots out of the 16 gram co2 cartridges? It seems like all I get is one magizine useage per cartridge, is this normal? is there any way to get more shots per magazine?

Six, Arch is right 12gms is the norm! I think the 16gms are for bikes(pedal) to inflate tires!? never seen a PB gun that ran on them but...I've been wrong before!
p.s. I re-load mags one more on a 12y so 16 per just cause I don't want to have the drop-off mid-game! "bloot" is not a good sound!

I get 24 shots per 12gram - I run at 270fps and don't quick fire.

You probably have a very small leak somewhere that you can't even really hear, might need to use the tire method with some soapy water or try something to get to the bottom of the leak.

You might want to just replace all the o-rings in the marker and mags. Doesn't hurt to do this once a year anyways. I do.

2.5-3.5 magazines per 12gram is about average.

If you picked it up used is it possible you got an SA-8 (or a refurbished SA-8 sometimes marked as TR8 or T8R) and not a T8? The SA-8s (and refurbished models) have a larger air chamber that isn't as efficient as the T8 or the newer x.1 models.

I'm also curious what brand 12 grams you are using. I wouldn't be surprised to see SA-8s get only a single good magazine off old crossman or daisy 12 grams.

If you have a derivation of the SA-8 polishing the bolt to improve efficiency and using good Leland, MOSA, or ICO 12 grams should get you a pretty consistent 2 mags per 12 gram.

---

If you don't have an SA-8 or any derivative of it... then yeah you've likely got a leak you aren't noticing. Either in the mag's valve or the marker itself.

So any other strange symptoms? and which version of a Tiberius marker do you have? T8 / T9 / T8.1 / T9.1 / T4 / SA-8(T8R)
