Ive seen a few people at the local store/field have a double C02 setup on their backs, can this be done with hpa as well?

Totally.

I don't remember what the piece is called to do it, but it can be done to connect one HPA source to two markers, also (I think)...

Palmers Pursuit has some double barreled markers that some people like to use dual tanks for.

Double CO2 seems like overkill considering how many shots you get at a warm temperature though... :P

The trouble with CO2 is it isn't so great at high ROF... :P

is there a commercially available piece to do this or is it more of a custom thing
Furthermore - if you are "deuce-ing" during a game, you have more things to worry about than camo kneepads. -ger

When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave the world wondering how the hell you did it.

I wonder if I could turn one of those "Rascal" scooter thingies into an old-guy paintball tank? -Violator

There's no real need for a commercial setup, since all the parts are readily available from your local paintball store. All you need is a 1/8th" NPT T-fitting, a remote nipple, 4 macroline adapters, 2 pieces of macroline, 2 gauges or plugs and 2 ASAs. Also a remote line with a quick disconnect at each end.

im not sure if i was clear on what i was asking lol

I saw in an older APG magazine, this guy was using 2 24oz c0z tanks, somewhat of a home made valve system, to have one and one off, and when one emptied, he opened both.
so that the one with energy in it used the empty tank as some sort of expansion chamber?.

hopefully that was a little more descriptive. and if it can be done with hpa tanks

Yes it can be done.

In fact Shrek has a system very similar to your description and it works just fine.

I would suggest he be the man to talk with!

A double air setup mike look sweet, but do the math and see if it's actually going to do any good (if you're carrying more paint than air or vice versa, you're not doing good on one or the other).

The calculation for the number of shots you'll get is about 10 per cubic inch for 3000 psi and 15 for 4500. So for a 68/3000 tank, you'll get 680 rounds. A standard 68/4500 will rate you 1020 rounds. If you're using 140 round pods, you'll be carrying seven pods with some left in the hopper. If you're not carrying and using WAY more than that in a game, your time and money will be better spent on other efforts.

If you are regularly shooting that much paint, please tell me where you work and if they're hiring. Or give my sympathies to your credit card company.

The calculations for paint to air need to be figured on a gun to gun basis.
My old Cyborg would pull 2100 rnds off a 68/4500.
Also had a Drone shoot 1500 on the same 68/4500.
Currently my Clone is pulling around 1200 off a 45/45....I have yet to try the 68 tank on it for a more understandable number.

My point being each gun is going to consume differently...and the owner needs to figure out his best balance based on his set up.

Personally...I carry four pods and a hopper so my 45/4500 is perfect!

Naturally. I should have mentioned that. It's pretty accurate for mags and the blowbacks most guys are shooting though, especially the double trouble crowd. Either way, if you've got a high efficiency marker, you probably already know that.
