Default Filled bottles

I cant remember, how much is a FULL 20oz co2 bottle suppose to weight (roughly). The only place locally to get co2 is the Ace Hardware, but i dont thik they are filling it full. And maybe for future reference 12oz and 9 oz. thanks

don't forget...a stock (or near stock) Spyder gets horrible efficiency so a 20 oz will only give you about 800-1000 shots. You can find more info HERE

noooooooo!!!! engraving a tank gives it a weak spot!

put it on a blank sticker and cover it with clear packing tape
