How To Get More Out Of A CO2 Paintball Tank

By Ryan Gert

If you want to get the most out of your CO2 tank, there are three ways that you can get the most out of it in terms of operation, performance and life.

On/off valves provide a tremendous improvement over pin valves. If you dont have one, get one, because they simplify your life. When you are gassing up your gun, screw in the tank and then turn on the valve, when you are finished, turn it off.

Pin valves shorten the life of your o-rings. When you unscrew a tank with a pin valve, the left over gas in the gun will often blow out, making an unpleasant hissing sound. This will sometimes ruin your o-ring. An on/off valve makes it more painless to remove your tank. Simply turn off the valve, shoot out the remaining gas, and unscrew it. It will save your o-rings, and it will get rid of the annoying hiss.

An anti-siphon kit can help you get better performance out of CO2. The problem with CO2 is that it exists in both liquid and gas form inside your tank. To get better performance out of your CO2, install an anti-siphon kit.

CO2 exists as a liquid and a gas in your tank, and when your gun starts running off of the liquid, its performance will suffer. An anti-siphon kit will help make sure that the gas goes into the gun and not the liquid.

To keep your tank scratch free and in pristine condition, you can buy a neoprene cover to protect it. It will protect it from dings and from normal wear and tear, and can even help it grip your shoulder a little better.

An on/off valve will make your life easier. Youll get more life out of your o-rings, and youll be able to control when you want to gas up your paintball gun.

For improved consistency, an anti-siphon kit will help your gun use the gas and not the liquid.

Once you have all of that on, protect your tank and keep it looking new with a neoprene cover.
