You need either Co2 or Compressed air for a paintball gun to function. Every gun can run on compressed air, but only some can run on Co2.
No compressed air would be better for accuracy as well as your gun. Its like co2 but at a higher pressure with cleaner air and no liquid that can damage your paintball marker.
No, do not try to fill a CO2 canister with HPA.
if u mean the tank that you put your shoulder against and what powers it. no u can get co2 or compressed air (compressed air is better for your gun)
Yes, it does.
On a paintball gun C02, or High pressure air is necessary. It is compressed air that, when the trigger is pulled and the marker fires, propels the paintball out of the barrel.
nitro is short for Nitrogen, or Compressed air. It is highly pressurized air that is used to propel a paintball, instead of Carbon Dioxide, or CO2.
Co2 (or sometimes High Pressure air) is what operates the paintball gun. The compressed Co2 is what physically moves the paintball out of the barrel as it expands. It is also what resets the mechanical parts on semi-automatic paintball guns. Without Co2 you cannot operate a paintball gun.
Yes! in fact, it will not work on CO2 at all.
at Paintball arena in Fun Addaa, Pune you can play paintball using Co2 and compressed air as well, Co2 is used to give the paintballs extra pressure so that it can travell with a high velocity.
"Air", "Compressed air", "High Pressure air", "nitrogen", "N2" and "Nitro" are all the same gas, these are just different nicknames for it. The correct term is High Pressure Air, or HPA. Since air is mostly Nitrogen, it is given other names. The Air also contains CO2, but in paintball Co2 is separated pure liquid Carbon-dioxide, which is incompatible with HPA tanks and guns.
Yes. Paintball guns are definitely pneumatic. They run on compressed gas, Co2/Compressed air, and use the release of that gas to power the mechanics inside and propel the paintball forward toward a target.Information provided by Bullit Paintball teamcaptian: Nolan M.
