I'm guessing a conservative average of 40 to 50 shot under optimum conditions max. Meaning paint quality, ball to barrel match, barrel quality and design, weather, ie; dew point and temps, and last, powerlet brand.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

No I don't have an indoor facility. I will test efficiency this week though but I can only do outside

I'm not sure where you live, but here in the Northeast it's just above 3F right now. Testing the efficiency of 12 grams in temps below 70F is utterly pointless. CO2 pressure is determined by temperature. If you normally play in warmer weather (Spring/Summer/Fall), then any tests you do now in the Winter will not reflect the full efficiency potential of the gun. Save your paint and 12 grams for warmer weather when you can get some reliable data.

I just became the owner of one of these

So instead of the hard metal tube on the top half of the marker, and the braided steel line on the bottom of the marker... can I swap in regular macroline fittings? Or the CCM macroline fittings? I'll mainly be using HPA, but may occasionally use 12grams...

The metal lines are better for CO2 imo but not sure if 12grams carry enough liquid to cause any issues with the lines.

CO2 in a liquid state isn't determined by the size of the vessel it is in. It's determined by pressure and temperature. CO2 can exist as a liquid in any size container under the right conditions (high pressure/low temperature). CCI understands the complex properties of CO2, and their equipment is designed accordingly.

So is it pretty simple to remove all the metal lines, and swap it for macroline? Just unbolt the existing fittings, and screw in the new 90* elbow macroline fittings I want, and connect macroline, right?

Yes, it's that simple. Though I have no idea why anyone would want to replace the tried and true CCI hardline, SS hose and fittings for cheap macrolines that will pop off far more easily on a woodsball snag. Some folks love the macrolines, but I've never had good luck with them, much less liked the look of them. To each their own however.
