sorry to ruin your day, but you can't run an rt on co2. co2 doesn't expand fast enough to run the gun properly, all you'r gonna do is mess it up.

Co2 expands pleanty fast for an RT. it's the fact that it's pressure changes so much with temprature. CO2 will OPERATE an RT.. but you'll end up with velocity spikes in teh +-200fps range. AKa, blowing holes in paint, or the ball not making it out of the barrel. Nitrogen is required because it's a fairly temprature stable gas. The gun recharges so fast, that it even heats up n2 enough to change the velocity signifigantly!

Dont run it on Co2!!!!! it will screw the gun up. It even says it on the gun. If your going to buy a 650 gun, you dont want to be cheap and run it off of co2.
