Armed forces trainer questions

Hey all, had a quick question for anyone who is familiar with these. I bought one of these about a month ago after having been looking for one for some time. First of all I was wondering if anyone had an opinion as to the best way to add to the longevity of this marker (it shoots awesome, I really love the trajectory). for example, if i just hook a tank up to the back will that keep the 12 gram portion of the gun from, eventually, leaking (as i have been told they tend to do after a while)? Any discussion or ideas from you guys would be greatly appreciated!

thanks, in advance, for your help.

Nope.

The whole system is pressurized. Same stress either way.

Shouldn't matter a bit unless you have gorilla hands and you're really wrenching the heck out of the chamber changing 12'ies. I guess that there is the day to day stress of screwing the cap, but aside from that it's pretty much the same pressure internally.

You would save the 12 g seal maybe?

Those always seem tricky in any marker.

Play that marker into the ground and fix it or get another just like it. I think they are more fun that way.

No 12 gram seal in the AFT. It's got a really unique method of piercing. The cap pierces the 12 gram, then you back it out a bit, and the whole gun pressurizes. Only one I know if that works that way.
