Paintball Guns & Accessories : CO2 Vs. Compressed Air Paintball Guns


CO2 versus compressed air. Hi I’m Robert Stewart
with hill13.com. Today we’re going to be talking about CO2 versus compressed air. A lot of
rental fields you go to they’re going to have an air compressor running in the gun hut and
the tanks that you’re going to be playing with are going to be filled with compressed
air. And it is exactly what it says it is. They compress the air into a tank, feed it
into the bottle and then you hook that to your gun and that’s what you’re going to play
off of. A 20 ounce tank will last you at least, depending on the weather conditions, 200,
300 balls. But generally speaking you don’t get the performance out of compressed air
that you do from CO2 like you saw in this tank. The reason for that is the CO2 is a
little bit more stable and releases a little smoother and it gives you better performance
and it’s a longer lasting gas. So what I’ve just done here is screwed the tank into the
back of the weapon here and as you screw the tank in if it begins to bleed in a way that’s
not, as you can tell it’s not bleeding now, if it bleeds that means you probably have
a bad O ring. We’ll come back to that later. Once the air is on, if your air tank is full,
the weapon should be capable of firing. And then you’re ready to play.
