View Full Version : help w/ co2

07-07-2006, 08:50 AM
ok fellas. i'm trying to figure out a way to mount an old-school (12g) co2 cartridge "carriage" to a modern ASA.

is there such an animal? ... a clean way of adapting an older co2 (intake) design to a modern marker?

Does it have to be 12 gram? What about those new 88 grams? You can get a 2-pack with an ASA adapter for under $10 at Wal-Mart.

i was hoping for something a bit less bulky
& quicker to change out in a pinch.
in my opinion the new(er) 88g alternative hinders the ability to stow or "holster" the marker conveniently.
note: this is not meant serve as a quick (crap my main marker jammed) backup.

most 12 gram changers have the standard asa threads

at least i have something to work with.
i would imagine that the single load is more to my liking, for portability anyway.

good work!

Are you accututally sure you want to use 12 grams with a blowback gun, because you'll get only ~20 shots tops with one.

Palmers pursuit sells the cci 12gram quick changers (https://palmer-pursuit.com/ecom/product_info.php/cPath/52/products_id/122?osCsid=ab8810d82ebf3eaf7db4b44c1e19f49e) So does mike cassidy, for a bit less here (http://www.phantomonline.com/Accessories/accessories.html)

A quick change straight into the vertical adapter would be cool for some scenario stuff...hmmm I think I need an old spyder imagine...

yes, i'm sure.
again it for a very compact easy transport back ... much like a sidearm.
