I get more shots off my HPA than I did off a 20oz CO2. Try getting a couple of scuba tanks so you can have one to start the fill and one to top off. As the first stage tank gets empty, have it filled to be come the 2nd stage. The old 2nd stage becomes the first stage to start the fill. Repeat as necessary. A pair of 80lb scubas will last the summer and the cost to fill is about $5 each. Of course you will be running 3000psi, so get an 88ci tank so that you have volume rather than pressure. This system works well and will save you a lot of money in the log run vs CO2.
The RT mag won't work on CO2. The others will.
Venting air between the two halves is the large oring between the halves.
Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
