Re: Why You May Want to Use CO2 Instead of HPA
well said timber tiger!
as timber said, the problem with CO2 getting at the noid isnt that the liquid CO2 goes all the way from the tank through the asa and macroline, through the reg, through the LPR, and into the solenoid. there is no way that CO2, a liquid that expands into a gas would travel that whole distance in liquid form, as the original CO2 enthusiast mentioned. that is damn near impossible. it is the density of the gas condensing inside the small chambers of the solenoid that causes the problems. i dont know about you guys, but i dont want anything condensing near tiny orings and seals.
and on the weight issue:
sure an empty CO2 tank might weigh less than an empty HPA tank, but fill the tanks and then tell me which is lighter. my days of lugging a 20oz are over.
HPA tanks are made to way way way higher standards than a CO2 tank aswell. not even a close comparison for the safety issue. sure it has more pressure, big whoop.
