Pro E on CO2?

The Pro E runs goo on CO2 right? It's a Tippy I figured it would. I might end up getting an X-Chamber just to make sure, or get my tank anti-siphoned after a while. I could always run the remote on it, if all else fails.

Yea they run fine on C02, but you could either get a nitro tank or get it anti siphoned because thats always a good thing to do. The x chamber will help you alot also.

i got nitro as to not risk my board getting fried from sweating after it gets cold. It should work fine as long as your not burnin 500 rounds in 2 minutes (like i did....mine gun was cold for quite a while Laughing )

I just don't want to really risk frying the board. I might have to get my tank anti-siphoned sometime here soon.

I would get it syphoned just in case but the best thing to do is to get HPA then you wouldnt have to worry about the C02 at all.

im not gonna waste my time siphoning cuz i got HPA on the way and i have a remote and the pack that holds the tank upright.....wouldnt be pretty Laughing

I fill my own CO2 though. I get it dirt cheap in the big canisters. Anyway, anyone have any Anti-Siphoned CO2 tanks they'd sell cheap/give to me. Smile

lucky....i want to get a scuba tank for nitro Very Happy

I think you will be fine with just co2 and nothing added. But, I live in Texas where it is only cold sometimes. If it is cold in your area, I suggest something to help out. When I got my Pro E, I had the palmer put on not to long after I got it. I don't think you should really worry, until you get some serious snow coming out the cracks of the gun. Also, when you get the gun, be very careful with the switch things that increase rate of fire and switch fire modes, because those things will strip very easily.

It'll be fine.

Well Iowa can get "cold" sometimes. I use ""'s because I don't think it's cold much at all. I think it's chilly at around 0 degrees. But yeah I don't play much in winter anyway. Mostly summer.

The Pro E should work fine. I think it would be a good idea to get your tank anti-siphoned just for the heck of it, I'm going to and I use it on my SL.

NOOO!!!! SL's were made for Siphoned CO2! Mine just loves it! Give it liquid every once and a while and it'll run perfect!

This I know. However, I'm still in my search for a cheap cocker and will use that tank with it.

Blah i hate x-chambers... take up way too much space with not that much of an improvment. I just go strait up with my 98c. Really, liquid isnt that bad as some make it sound...

It wont do anything to your electronics, it sublimes, nooo liquid. The liquid Co2 will never be in liquid form outside of your tank, itll just instantly sublime to gas and simply freeze moisture in the air.

Anti-siphon is the best solution for the problem though.

it will come out as more of a mistyness not like water if held upside down. And im not too worried about "watery liquid" goin into a gun but its the sweating.....when laying down heavy fire in semi cold weather the gun gets cold and condensates.....i get worried that it may sweat off and fry the board. Just my input. Cheers
TriggerHappy1

I guess you could think that, but Iv never seen enough moisture due to liquid Co2 to actualy short a circuit. It just kinda forms on there in tiny tiny dropletttes. But I guess I see your concern. Just dont point your gun down and you wont suck up the liquid...
You Wont See Me

I played with the E-grip yesterday using c02 in about 30 degree weather. The whole co2 tank/expansion chamber was frosted over. It still works fine.
g36 monkey

well thats good....im sellin my tank to this kid who wants to start playin down the street...my other neighbor is sellin him his gun and then the guy whos selllin the gun is buyin smittys. Laughing
But my nitro will be here on wednesday so i wont even have to worry about it anymore Cheers
