12g co2 vs 16g co2

So i was pondering about co2 cartridges. I know they make 16g's, but I cannot find a side by side comparison, or any sizes of the cartridges.

I am just curious if they can be fit into some markers, get you a few more shots.

I already think it's probably going to be a little fatter, but if it's just a smidge longer then it is possible.

any one do this sort of thing?

I think the cost of the 12ies are still better than the 16grams
If my memory is right it longer, can't find the pdf I had x.x

Good luck finding them... I've never met a single person that uses them.

That's an adapter for the threaded ones, to a normal ASA. I want to use these in a pistol, or stock gun. I found them un threaded. I guess I will just have to buy a 6 pack and see if they fit.

It would probably only give you a few more shots, but any little bit helps.

You need to channel da google-fu.... 25g vs. 16g vs. 12g



I don't think 16g's will fit, looks like they are more fatter than long.

I think it comes down to cost. There are tons of disposable co2 sizes. TASO used to tell a variety in the early 90s. (called minimax, and micromax I think?). They are all used in many different industries.

But since the vast majority made are 12gram in size... they will be far...far cheaper and easier to get.

Thanks to prior experience with them I've found food grade (if I could find medical grade co2 - does it exist? - I'd try that) co2 12g's are significantly cleaner/have less oil/junk/solid material in them. That being said I don't think the contaminants in industrial grade co2 will cause the majority of guns that run on them any problems.

Cost seems like the most important issue, next to safety, at the end of the day

Mosa are food grade, Ico is a distributor of said Mosa product
Industrial like crossmann have bad consistency in weight meaning the content can vary.
Mosa are accurate and can result in more co2 compared to other brand.
Also Mosa's dont have empty cartridge

No problem if it overfill a bit, I runned them a while and had people use them for a while too.

Contaminents isn't harmfull per say but you can see some when you clean your gun if you runned co2 for a while.

Cost wise is same or better than the industrial brand to start with but you don't find them in big box store so you gotta plan them in advance.
