Ok, this is a really newbish question, BUT as fate would have it, I've always had my tanks filled before i needed them. I herd somewhere that you had to chill the tank or let it warm or something temperature wise. I just wanted to know if i got my tank filled could i play with it a half hour later?

yes. they need to chill the tank so that the liquid CO2 won't expand into gas during the filling process. Playing with it immediately after filling won't be a problem.

You're fine. the tank gets a little cold when filled, but it warms up pretty quickly. CO2 is a cold gas, so it works better in 50* and up, but you'll be fine.

98's can stand up to ALMOST anything :D. Like a 50 foot drop down to the cement, or total submersion in mud, or eve- well, nevermind, you get my point.

They don't need to have it chilled before filling but it helps. I always get my tanks filled at the end of the day. There's no line, my tank is usually almost empty, and it's already chilled a little bit from firing during the previous game. Ideally you shouldn't fill up your tank right before you play with it.

The reason being is that after they fill your tank it will be very cold resulting in a lower output pressure. As the tank warms up, your output pressure will raise. As the output pressure raises so does the velocity of unregulated markers. Ideally you want both the marker and your air source to be acclimated to the same temperature that you are playing in. Also be sure that you have your CO2 tank pointed upwards when gassing it up keeping liquid from flowing in right at the start.

You would be surprised how many other markers can take the abuse or more that 98's can handle.

And no need to worry about a 98C freezing up, I've had my entire 98C except the grips and part of the hopper in a thick layer of ice and it kept on going. Just use a little oil.

I wonder if a 98c fell out of a plane if it would still work.

Oh, and guess what? it didn't matter that my takes just got filled that day, the field was closed due to " unforeseeable circumstances" oh well... :)

If it broke the fall by landing on somebody first, maybe...

Ha, my friends poor 98 lay in snow for 24 hours and was played with 10 minutes after being removed... functioned perfect. (note, CO2 was not in the marker in the snow)
