Unhappy Co2

Hey my whole city doesnt have a single diffrent gas other than co2 for paintball guns but im getting a epiphany and I heard co2 is a problem for high end guns so what do I do get it and play with co2 but clean it more than using nitrogen?

Get an anti-siphon so that you don't suck up the liquid part of CO2 and you should be OK.

If you absolutely CANNOT get compressed air / N2, then don't get an Epiphany.

They will not, I repeat, WILL NOT run on any sort of C02. Even anti-siphon, or through a remote, etc. High end guns are made for compressed air / N2 exclusively. Don't try anything other than those two gases.

A decent marker that can run on C02 is a Spyder Pilot, if you wanna look into that...

Dajini, are you sure about that? I know a lot of guns won't run too well on CO2, but they can. I could be wrong though about the epiph.

I would probably downgrade to the ion if you can get compressed air and still want a similar preforming gun.

yes it might run ok for a little wihle but trust me co2 is going to ruin the gun...with the gun getting so cold its possible for the condensation to fry the board and ive also heard that using co2 will cause u alot of oring problems

the eip and the ion are really the same gun, they could both use co2, but not optimally

And that's why I said that you could use CO2 even though it's not the best choice.

id get an impulse those run great on co2 and they shoot nice and arte VERY reliablr and you can get a nice one for the same price as the epiphany or even less like this one
http://www.mikespaintball.com/cash_money_impulse.htm

heres a list of the best co2 useable

worst: mech spyders or mech spyder clones

electric but not the best choice: pilot piranha evo etc.....

the best on co2:ion vs2 vs3 impulse or even the electric tippman which is decent

Yea. As to the kid talking about the impulses, don't get one new. They are overpriced when new. Go to the B/S/T for a used one with a lot of ups. Just know that imps have a low resale value, barely any parts are around for them, and that cash money is very nice, but doesn't come as pictured. And you really shouldn't run an imp on CO2 actually.

If you absolutely can not get high pressure air, you still have a few options.

You can buy a scuba tank and an adapter and fill your hpa tank with that.
OR
you can buy at least 2 palmers regulators and use them in line with each other like you would with a normal regulator.
