30 December 2009 - 02:01 PMBrian, you've helped me so much and given me I don't know how much in gear customizations. I wish I could help more.
30 December 2009 - 01:46 PMIt's not just consistency at high rates of fire. I've frosted a CO2 tank using a bone stock Alley Cat back in the day ( in Florida no less, ) and that only took 20 shots at 5 bps. HPA is just consistent in all conditions, period.
The biggest thing I caution people about CO2 is proper safety. Be sure to re-chrono multiple times per day as the temperature changes. Never leave a CO2 tank in direct sunlight. Don't misunderstand, CO2 is great for rec players and is "good enough" for many people. If you're fine with you're shooting consistency, then you don't need to worry about it. But if you can, try to use an HPA tank once or twice and see if it improves your game a little.
29 December 2009 - 04:03 PMWhat exactly are you considering "high-end" that you won't get? A Mini or G3 certainly aren't "high-end" ( though they are very good for the price, ) but they don't work on CO2. I understand either not wanting to or not having the money to upgrade, but with the price of quality electros falling, you might end up with one sooner than you think.
As for finding a used HPA tank, now is the time to look. A lot of people clear out their gear bags in the winter so they can buy next year's stuff.
