Just about anything on gun if you dual reg with an anti siphon.

Throw a female stabilizer on the bottomline. Set for ~200 psi higher than the operating pressure to help any liquid CO2 boil off if it makes it past the first reg.

Used to do that for my electro's until the shoebox came out. A friend still runs his Etek3 that way, going on 4 years.

Actually, the vibe, or envy(?) Does very well on co2. part of it is that it is limited to about 11 bps. On the other hand, they seem to blow their solenoids a little too often.

Ran an impulse like that for a long time. its kinda a bulky setup but it does work.

Vibe's work fine on Co2, so do SP1's. They are stupid cheap too, I see vibes go for sub $75 often and the SP1 is $125 new. I also second the sear trippers like Spyders or Tippmanns. You could always just run an expansion chamber and a remote for just about any other gun too if you limit the rate of fire, just be aware that not all places use clean food grade Co2 fills and they can make things dirty.

Used electros are cheap. Why not pick up a older dangerous power gun or something similar and use it. Cap it at like 10bps and if in 2 years you blow the solenoid who cares.
