A LOT of people don't have HPA fills because they play back yard ball in rural areas. I would be cool to be able to pick up a low priced, high performance semi and run it on CO2. It's not that anyone needs to do it. It would be cool though.

I was thinking about the freezing up videos using HPA.........and I imagine that would probably be worse on CO2. It may never work sadly. If I had one I'd experiment.

As far as I can tell the "freezing up video" is that one vid where the guy shoots through his tank with the marker right out of the box. From my experience, about 10 cases, with this marker I bet it just needed lube. I send lube through the Asa every case or so of paint. Right out of the box it might have been a little dry

Possible. Most bushball guys aren't ripping mad ropes of paint anyway so the gun would have more time to warm up a bit as well. It would be interesting anyway.

it would be WWAAYYYY worse with CO2 .. way back when i was shooting shoebox shockers, CO2 with make the gun completely freeze up if u tried to shoot it in full auto .. and that was like maybe 10BPS .. CO2 is not suitable for something that requires a fast recharge rate .. semi-auto mechs are about the only thing co2 is good for.

This is another reason to use air instead of CO2 in my mind. You can buy a scuba tank or rent one for cheap and fill your air tank much more easily than you can fill your own CO2 tank.

I suppose you get more shots per tank of similar size with CO2, but I'm amazed anybody uses it with how cheap the aluminum air tanks are now.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
