Well, Im not really a newb to teh game, but when it comes to figuring out good statitics and how air works, i am. So anyway!! I just bought an Ion and i had a 20ounce CO2. I was ganna buy an anti-siphon tube, but i hear air just owns and nothing can really go wrong. So..this is the perdidiment

I found two air systems i want. Both are 3000pmi. But one is 50ci and the other is 72ci. Now what would the difference be? one holds more, or would it just look bigger?

Also, the one ( i will tell if needed) is set at 800pmi. But the ion just needs 180pmi to work, so will it just regulate?

Thanks.

By the way, just so you know, you CANNOT use Co2 on an Ion. It will blow the valve thingy inside. You absolutely NEED HpA for your gun to work. But yes, Hpa IS the better way to go and the more psi you have, the more balls you can shoot.

you CAN run co2 on an ion with a anti syphon tube but it is a stupid idea

Yeah but you CAN also try to fart in a cannister... just not going to work :rolleyes:

You get maybe a handful of shots until you blow a solinoid.

Also, it would be 3000 PSI, not pmi. PMI is a brand that makes air tanks and paintball equipment, (Also known as Pure Energy).

Not quite, in a way yes. There are 3000 PSI tanks and 4500 PSI tanks. If you have a 4500 PSI and your filling station/your fields filling station can fill 4500 PSI then yes you will get more shots out of the tank, but the 72ci is a bigger tank than the 50ci which means the 72ci will get more shots out of the tank.
