anti siphoning a co2 tank, make it comparable to HPA??

does adding an anti-siphon pin make most of the problems with shooting co2 go away?? (freezing o-rings, liquid co2 in gun)

wondering cause co2 is the only option gonna be using it with a pump setup grabbing a 9 oz and want it to be as consistent as possible

thanks

It will help with liquid co2 getting into the marker, provided it's installed properly for that marker. And help with consistency as it should only draw vapor co2 and not liquid co2.
It's not going to totally eliminate the freezing aspect as co2 is just naturally cold. It'll help reduce the issue though as you're not going to be getting liquid co2 so the chances of 'freezing up' your asa, reg, etc should be minimal if anything.

thank you, what do you mean "for that marker"? I thought the anti siphon is installed into the tank?

You have to make sure the tube is installed correctly for the certain marker it's on. That's done by pulling the valve off, screwing it in the gun and marking where the tube would need to be point up.

To expand upon what Dyoel182 said, you actually have to remove the valve from the tank. You then screw the valve into your ASA, and both mark the spot that would be 12 o'clock, or top dead center, as well as install the anti-siphon tube (Which is basically a length of copper tubing that, when installed, will curve upwards and then almost parallel with the bottle for around six or so inches of length). Then, you can either remove the valve, carefully, and reinstall it on the bottle (Using Loctite), or you can reinstall the bottle, which it the valve in still in the ASA (Again, using Loctite). Do let it cure, so at least 24 hours before you go and fill the tank.
