CO2 Paintball Tanks

CO2 Paintball Tanks

CO2 tanks are used for powering paintball guns, airsoft guns and even soda machines.  They are a cost effective way to operate paintball and airsoft guns.  The cost of a co2 paintball tank, compared to a high pressure air tank, is up to 90% less expensive for the tank.  Because of this low cost to entry, you can buy several CO2 tanks, have them all filled, and play for hours without having to refill the co2 tank.  

CO2 tanks come in a variety of sizes that are described by either ounces or grams.  You would normally want to buy a refillable co2 tank.  Re-fillable co2 tanks are sold in ounces.  If you want to buy a pre-filled co2 tank just remember that when the co2 is empty, you have to throw away that tank. Disposable co2 tanks are sold by grams.

How do I know if I have a CO2 Tank or a High Pressure Air Tank ? 

The best way to tell what type of tank you have is to see if it has a gauge on the "regulator" or "valve".  Tanks that have a pressure gauge are always HPA paintball tanks.  Tanks that have no gauge are always CO2 paintball tanks.
