Etek 4 question

What would happen if I were to use co2 just to shoot a hopper in my backyard. Because the manual says never shoot with co2

The co2 gets colder as shot, so the co2 will cool down and damage the reg parts, freeze o-rings, and fry the board if the liquid drips on it. Don't do it man

Dang that sucks. Cause I already shot it in my backyard with one 20 ounce co2. But there doesn't seem to be a problem with my gun. Is there any chance that nothing happened to my gun.

Why risk something that can be prevented before even attempted? NO....just don't do it. Since you already did I would check/replace every oring in the gun. But I am OCD like that with my guns.

I took apart my gun and looked at all the o rings and all of them seem to be fine. But from now on I will just use my gun with a air tank instead. But the only time I will be able to that is at the paintball field when I rent a air tank. I'm saving up for a tank at academy

Yeah just stay with HPA. If you need an air tank PM me and I can arrange you something cheap so you don't ever use a CO2 tank again on your Etek.
