Indeed I will Travis.
the issue with paintball CO2
tanks, is that a standard regulator will NOT fit on it. You must buy an adapter...and the adapters I've seen are all in the $60+ range.
So it ends up being cheaper to just buy a normal cylinder, skip the adapater, and then get a decent beveridge grade CO2
regulator, and a needle valve. The needle valve is most important, as the regulator won't hold a steady flow under 15psi, and we really need about 4-5psi tops.
Paintball gun CO2
having 'oil' in it is a myth. I had to oil my paintball gun/marker back when I played, and our CO2
cylinder came from a welding shop. Its arguable that medical or food grade CO2
might be more pure, but its really a non-issue.
Plus, $8 for 16oz? I only pay $10.85 for a 5lb fill, and $13 something for 10lbs.
Long story short, paintball CO2
works, but its far from simple or economic. A few poeple have done it to prove a point that it can be done and work, but in the long run, its just not ideal.
