I was thinking the other day about taking a magstrike, sawing off the bladder/stock, and threading an air cord through the grip, to the trigger valve, then takeing the other end and attaching it to a big bladder inside a backpack.
This would enable the magstrike to be fired, reloaded, and fired again, and again, without having to pump up.(one would have to pump up before a war, but it would probably last the entire session. Does anyone think this is possible?
Would the trigger valve break under the pressure?

This reminded me of an idea I had a while back. When I was looking at the Magstrike I noticed it resembled somewhat a paint ball gun with the tank jutting out the rear end. Then I thought, hey! What if we cut off the tank and did sort of what CS did but instead of a back pack tank/bladder, we could put an actual paint ball C02 tank! One of the 20oz. refillable ones, for those of us who can refill on at home, this could be very convenient. We could carry multiple clips and tanks and we might be able to get several clips out of one tank. Might not be as practical as CS's version, but for someone with the money and knowhow, this could work very well!!!

Sorry for the hijack.

You should not use CO2 on Nerf blasters. CO2 is to cold and it will make the plastic brittle and break.

Yes, I realized that. However, my father said he knows of a way to refill those CO2 tanks with compressed air. The air wont be very cold at all.

I am a paintball person myself. I suggest you don't fill co2 tanks with compressed air they will jack up on you. Just
buy a high pressure tank a.k.a compressed air, and my tank can hold about 4500 psi so its pretty good. :mellow:

If you accidentally clock somebody with a doubleshot, then you're more liable to break the doubleshot than you are to cause serious injury.

The tank would be manualy pumped, not electric. So it's not the same.

I've already successfully hooked up Nerf guns directly to HPA paintball tanks.

You can accomplish similar results with an inline regulator using APA adapters.

Why should you not fill a co2 tank with air?

Because CO2 tanks ARE ONLY RATED FOR CO2. When CO2 is under pressure it compresses to its liquid state, and the extreme cold created when firing with it is because it undergoes a phase change from liquid to gas during the dramatic pressure drop.
The static pressure of a CO2 tank is lower than that of an HPA tank of identical volume and shot capacity.

Plastic cannot handle the temperature shock that CO2 introduces. The problem will be heavily escalated by the volume of gas you will be using to fire darts.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Never mind, CS just answered my question. Good job CS! I might try this when I get some money.
