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.

Converter here.

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