As long as its rated for the pressure. Figure 2000psi for unregulated Co2 & 1000psi for regulated.

I was under the impression CO2 was under 1000 psi...........
I know some gas will corrode copper.

130 BARS converts to 1885.494 PSI

Converter here.

When dealing with pressure, always build it to handle twice as much as needed if you can.
