I was wondering what part of the gun allows it to be CO2 compatible...
Thanks

for the sake of spyders the O-rings, and even then only the orings that are static sealing.


Now we can take it to specific uses with your own spyder and how you setup your gun like i've heard that evil detonator regs are not so CO2 to friendly and i'm going to guess its because of its design and the o-rings used. While a palmers stabilizer is more than happy to use CO2.


BTW is your NDZ asa a quick flip??

often the regulator or if your gun has a solenoid, CO2 can freeze it up, but it's hard on o-rings too

umm don't mean to be nit picking but don't all regulators operate like popit valves? i'm just curious about which one you may be talking about.

just in general, a lot of regulators cannot properly function on CO2

Yes, it is a quick flip...

Like I notice that the RS is basically an RSX, but the RSX is HPA only. SO, that kind of confused me...

because of the valves one uses the 100% CO2 friendly

and the RSX uses the 90% CO2 friendly balance valve

balance valve just doesn't do well with CO2 has some issues re-cocking in cold weather and possibly break an oring but it will still work just not as well. So Kingman isn't going to cover you when it breaks while using CO2

I see, but say the 08 Electra had a Proto ASA on it, would it still be CO2 friendly?

I don't see why not. It's just an ASA.

^^ correct, but why do you want a proto ASA on an 08 electra, that would be a waste of your money
