Compressed Air

Can a normal 14 Ounce CO2 tank run it? I just want to make sure...

Nope, the tank might not even be strong enough at that kind of pressure.

You'd need a nitro tank built to hold the pressure of compressed air and nitrogen gas.

I would do the following...

Look for a preset fiber tank by either crossfire or pure energy. They put out between 750 psi and 850psi depending on the regulator. Almost the same psi as CO2. Depending on how much you got, go 3000 if you don't have alot and 4500 if you do.

For a 45/3000 you might be able to get a new one for about $130 or under $100 for less. Up to 88/4500 which is about $250 new or under $200 used.

Hope this helps.

I'm definately looking to get out of using CO2 and into Compressed Air, so much that I'm seriously considering investing 50 dollars with a friend to get what we would need to fill our own tanks.

Talking

Comp air is def the way to go. Its more consistant and accually helps your gun last longer cause co2 is very dirty and can cause excessive wear on parts.
I did the same w/a friend of mine. I bought a suba tank (online new $130 used $70) and a fill station (hooks onto your scuba and fills your tank through the fill nipple and runs for about $60)
Once you get all this gear you just have to fill your scuba @ local dive shop.@ about $3 per fill.
One fill lasts me and my buddy all day. We shoot about 2.5 cases a day.
some recomendations are:
1: get a 3000psi fiber tank for your gun. Scuba tanks only can be filled to 3000psi so if your buy a 4500psi system you cant fill it all the way anyway. Unless you own a HP compressor
2: find out if the fields you play on allow you to bring. I had the worst exper. when the main field i play on change insurance co. and cause of this they stopped letting people bring their own tanks. So I waisted alot of $$.

We already have a air compresser, just need a fill station and the tanks. I'll probably buy one in the next couple of weeks.

You have an air compressor? Is it the kind you stick in your garrage because taht wont fill a scuba tank, at most maybe a ceveral 100 psi but definetly not 3000 or 4500. The compressors that can fill that high are like the size of a car. You have to go to a suba store to fill your scuba tank and from there on to your gun. 50 bucks isnt gunna get you a scuba tank but if your lucky maybe a used one, and if you buy a used one,be careful and look for oxidation or any salt deposits, it will screw up your nitro tank. If your just starting into nitro just get a nice screw in like a pure energy. Start out witha 3000psi unless your gooing to play in tourneys, because you can only fill 4500psi tanks at tourneys, there are not scuba tanks that i knoe of that can fill to 4500psi. If you want to start out expensive for your tnak i would recomend the Mac Dev Conquest noitro system. I just put mine on my cocker and its sweet! Good luck on getting your nitro system
