So backstory I used to play ALOT of paintball, worked for the local field, traveled the country playing, referred for NPPL(National Professional Paintball League) and repaired paintball guns. So I’m quite experienced with compressed air(4500psi) and CO2 as well as pneumatic operated toys that operate at extremely high pressure. Well at the field once we had a small build out in the back end of the 30 acre facility and no power to run a compressor so one of the guys rigged up a paintball tank to a regulator and bam we were nailing. This was oh somewhere around 2002 or so, Well I came across a bunch of my old gear and got to thinking about wiping up a setup for myself as I have 2 68ci 4500psi and 6 20oz CO2 tanks… so I started looking at my old goto sites for paintball gear to find a regulator and a high pressure air line… then Google got me searching “CO2 powered nail guns” and I came across this:
Please take note of the 5th Comment, I chuckled a little.
I still plan to make my little rig and when I do Ill post how well it performs ie shots per fill, air vs CO2, CO2 is very temperature sensitive and will take note of the temp on those days.
