    The designing, testing and building of a pressure vessel is a pretty serious amount of work and cost. That is why you do not see integrated air supply. For co2 you need a container that will safely hold 1800 PS I and if I remember correctly have a burst rating three times that to pass DOT testing. HPA minimum is 3k and the testing by DOT just as rigorous if not a bit more intense due to increased pressure.

    So that leads you to incorporate current existing platforms which limit design and placement due size...a 3.5 ounce co2 tank is a bit under 2" in diameter and a touch under 6" long. Need a bit more then you step up to a 5 ounce tank which is nearly 9" long. Those small tanks provide very little shot capacity even using the higher effeiency of co2...convert those to HPA and you reduce the shot count even more.

    And the magazine would be huge. And expensive. Tried to buy an aluminum 3.5 ounce co2 tank lately? $30-$40. And the 5 ounce is no better at the $50 price range.

    Don't need the 250 to 300 round shot capacity of the 3.5 ounce tank since you are going may fed? Try looking at the 35 to 60 gram tanks. Then try and breathe because a refillable 45 gram tank costs as much as the 3.5 ounce co2 tank! And you are cutting you shot count by 2/3 down to just a sliver over 100 per air fill.



    And i have not even touched on the costs of developing a consistantly good mag design....or the interface between gun, air and paint...


    What you are asking for is hundreds of man hours in design and testing just for safety standards alone...then more testing for reliability and operation. Prototyping would be ridiculously expensive. Especially for a highly limited market of players. At the high side I would not see selling more that a few hundred units.




    No profit in that. Not gonna happen.

    It will need to be seen before it is believed.

    Much of the magic was lost in the last few years in the Pacific Northwest. There is quite a bit to make up for and we are watching.
