G4 plus co2 = go buy a rebuild kit and solenoid.

You could do it the way we used to do Mags before N2.

Hang an anti-siphon on your back, from there go directly to your x-chamber, from there run a line to a 7 oz.tank filled with Chore Boy, then to the gun.

It does work, but it's really "Rube Goldberg".

I'm pretty sure you need something to regulate the pressure down from the tank. Your only hope is running a remote line like mentioned above. Even with that type of setup, I wouldn't shoot much faster than 5-6 bps if you don't want to replace the noid.

If you want a reliable electro that you can use with co2, check out the original Impulses. I had a couple of friends that used them with co2 for years. One of the Impulses even got to the point that it shot better with co2. The stock Maxflo regs on the Impulses did really well with anti-siphoned tanks too. You can easily find a decent working one for less than $100 these days and they are so out of date now that they are fun to shoot again.

They handle CO2 fine provided you are using either a remote or an antisiphon tank.

In all reality its not a good idea... The OP of a G4 is 240- 280psi and a co2 tank is 800psi + -...

The output of a HPA tank is typically 800psi as well. The reg on the gun is what gets it down to proper operating pressure.

If you can keep liquid out, any reg should work just fine. A gas is a gas, etc. But the problem is keeping the liquid out. I would also venture to say that the Myth about Co2 destroying your solenoids is completely wrong. SP guns have run Co2 through solenoids since the beginning, and never had much of a problem with Co2. If you keep your firing down around 6-7 bps, you can easily run Co2 on any gun. If you run a remote line to a secondary regulator like a bottom line Stabilizer, then to your guns reg, you will be in great shape. Set the Stabilizer to 550 psi or so and Co2 has a had time going liquid. Put a revy on your gun, turn the BPS down a bit and have fun!

It's amazing how scared of co2 people are these days. Just keep the liquid out and it does the same thing as HPA.
It will be fine. Best setup would be to run a remote line to a vertical co2 bottle in your harness.
The only thing you will want to avoid is horizontal ASAs with the bottle directly in it.
