i play heavy gunner, i just got a new a-5 with E-grip early this summer, all was well until last Sunday. i was only able to get around 1000 rounds out of two, 20 oz Co2 tanks. It was around 80 degrees so i don't think that had anything to do with it. why is this happening? if its the Co2, then would getting a HPA tank be better for my position?

maybe the guy who filled them did not fill them all the way. or there might be a very slight leak in your gun.

I agree with matt. Alot of places that fill CO2 tanks don't have a clue how to do it properly. Make sure the place that fills your tanks uses a scale.

there could have been a bad fill, but i did check for a leak and i could not hear anything.

another thing i forgot to say is that after the second tank stopped providing enough pressure for the cyclone i pulled it out of my belt and it turned into an ice cube. i suppose that would throw the warm weather out the window.

either way i was looking to upgrade. what would be the best way to go for more shots. keeping in mind that i am short on money. anything over 200 will have to wait.

you can find some nice big used hpa tanks for easily under 200.

Since you are a heavy gunner I recommend nothing smaller than a 88 cubic inch. I actually have a 114 cubic inch 3k PSI tank that I run off a remote line.

the reason for your tanks turning into "ice cubes" is beacuse of co2 in the tank escaping rapidly...this could mean 1 of 2 things:

1) you were just shooting fast for a long time (the egrip can cause you to do this)

2) there is a leak somewhere in your air setup...but if there was actuall frost on the tank, the leak must have been substantial enough for you to hear it..

hope this helps :laugh: -drummer
