CO2 in cockers
 
I am looking to buy a GX3 cocker, and was wondering if i would run into any problem running CO2 on it. I realize that if i shoot fast and often, it might freeze up, had this happen with my rainmaker and someones ION.

Never had a problem in mine, running CO2 with an anti-siphone and a Stabilizer. Dont thing there would be too much of a problem with that reg either.

Cockers were designed before HPA existed. A cocker can be run on CO2 with no inherent danger to the gun.

If you are concerned about consistency, a stabilizer works wonders for CO2. The pressure can be dropped below the magic 550PSI preventing liquid from forming in your gun. Even my older mini-cocker likes an input pressure of around 420-440 PSI.

Please point us in the direction of the uninformed who keep spouting this idiocy of a cocker not handling CO2.

The GX-3 might have an issue. Those Gen-X 2 regulators aren't very CO2 friendly.

Ive just had a problem of any 'tournament worthy' marker i get wont handle CO2, and have never owned a cocker, and the only cocker i used, was run on HPA.
Thanks for thing input.

Is this just the old comming out of me?
