Just curious, but would it be possible to replace an air bladder with a hose connected to a tank of compressed air?

Yes it would, but it would be a little dificult, and this should be in the modifications thread.

Blasphemy. I think you need to throw yourself against a wall, drive to store and buy yourself a brain.

No, you would have a few awsome shots and the rest would be weak and weaking.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.

More like 65 awesome shots and 10 weak ones. It entirely depends upon the gun used with the tank though. A Titan will empty the tank in 8-12 shots.

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?

60-70 feet using the 20-round clip. 50-60 feet using a 10-round clip.
Most of my air guns are now setup for use with the tank.

Nice videos. Does the tank slow you down a lot?
Also sweet ranges.

No, the tank only weighs 6 pounds. Plus an extra 6 pounds with the paintball tank added to it.
I made sure the low pressure tank doesn't limit my mobility in any way.
Not having to do any pumping during a round completely changes the usability of a good number of guns that would otherwise only be able to be used for one or two volley shots.

Perhaps a little off topic but is there a certain reason the 20 round mag goes further then the 10 round mag i would have thought the opposite.

The piston mechanism releases the air to fire the dart once the piston has reached the most forward point in the cycle. The more the clip weighs (up to a certain point) the more pressure is needed and built up during the advancing cycle. The result is a higher pressure delivered to fire the dart.
If I were to use the 20-round clip and simply tilt the gun sideways the rate of fire increases and the range decreases slightly. Such an action makes it impossible to aim though and the clip is more likely to simply fall out of the gun once it finished advancing.
