Ok I have an A-5 and two 20 oz tanks of C02, but when I tried to shoot my gun with one of the C02 canisters screwed on, it didnt shoot (as if there were no C02 in it at all) then I screwed on the other and it shot just fine. Is there a problem with my gun, the C02, or how I put on the C02???

Probably the pin valve. It's probably not getting pushed back. I'd have your local shop or paintball place check it out.

Make sure its filled ofcourse. It is easy to loose track of a tank being filled or not. And some tanks can have a slow leak. I went to put my 16 on my gun before after leaving it sit for a month and it was completly empty.

Ask your local shop and theyll get you covered.

Sounds like your gun is just fine. Like the others have said, it's probably the pin valve on the tank. Get it checked out, fixed, and you'll be ready to go! Cheers

one more thing to check was it screwed COMPLETLY in? even a half a turn can be the diffrence in an open or closed pin valve.

Tap the bottom of your tank with your finger while you swing it in small circles. If it has CO2 in it you will hear the ring change pitch as the liquid sloshes in the tank. If the tank is empty you will just here a ping each time you tap it.
