Thread: Micromag question

    Micromag question

    First off I am new to the mag world. With that said, I need to know if you can run co2 in a Micromag with a classic 68 Automag valve.

    but don't run CO2 on that setup with the bottom line ASA as shown with having an anti siphon tube installed in the tank...and you will also need to lose the macroline.

    Why no macro?

    because co2 gets really cold...it's gonna leak...the orings in the fittings aren't going to cut it. Get braided if you are running CO2

    Any sealing surface that relies on buna orings will have issues when used with CO2. The macro line fittings have those orings.

    Ideally, you want a slight tip back on your horizontal CO2 bottle combined with an anti-siphon tube. That will keep liquid out of the valve and still allow you to tip the gun forward in case you have to fire down a hill. When you install the antisiphon tube, it has to be setup for your ASA so that the tube is oriented up when the bottle is screwed in.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
