12 gram question

Hey guys, I plan on getting an MR5 soon as a cheap designated FS rifle and converting it to 12 grams. I've heard it gets 20-30 shots per cartridge and I want a few more shots than that so I was wondering, can you run 2 cartridges in series? I've worked with hpa mostly so I'm a bit stumped by liquid co2. I was hoping to run 2 12 gram changers to an inline Palmer's reg but my main questions are: will it actually give me twice the shots and will that cause any issues with the reg?

its no different than replacing the 12 gram with a tank. wont cause any issues. It will double your shot count. It might even give you more shots as you are not venting the first before you consume the second. Mind you, if you do decide to dump them you will loose twice as much gas.

I don't think there is any physical way to run 12 grams in series. They would be in parallel unless you plan on punching a hole in the bottom of one

Rap4 use to make a dual 12 gram adapter. You loaded 12 grams end to end and pierce both 12 grams at the same time. Unsure if they are still available today?

Yes, they are. 12g Disposable CO2 Adapter

Was looking at this the other day actually. Wonder if it works well enough to justify the price.
