RAP4.com - Real Action Paintball Rechargeable 12g Co2 Cylinder

Anyone see these? I am very curious to see how well they work!

Odd that they got their hands on a Gargoyle to to test it (PGP, too, though not as much so).

I think I'll order one and see what's what - at $17 it's not a great loss if it turns out to be rubbish. I wonder what makes it unusable in the TPX?

It might seem its only $17 but the read a little closer and you need their ag1 thunder grenade charger which is $25. This thing is nifty if you carry a co2 tank with and just want to use 12ies without ponying up and carrying around a bunch of 12ies.

Is that only going to work in some sort of RAP design?

Love the concept. The whole reason i dont use them is due to cost of something disposable. But ill wait till others try them out i wanna known about reliability and shot count. Especially on pumps.

Similar things have been floating around on airgun websites for years.
It is an interesting concept, but you won't get as much in a fill as you would in a regular 12 gram.
I assume you can't use it in a tipx because of the actuating puncture pin. These rechargeables are relying on a puncture pin to hold their one way valve open, but the tipx uses the pin to open tank once and then the pin moves back. These wouldn't keep a TiPX aired up.

I assume youd get fewer shots then a disposable 12g how many fewer would you say?

If I am playing with my tipx using 12 grams, and I run out of air, I can plug my remote line into the back, and "air it up" and then disconnect it and get at least 5-7 more good shots...

Kind of weird, especially since it only works with co2. If you try it with compressed air, you get one weak shot...

I think this has more of a purpose in my eyes as a testing tool. For example, when testing and tuning at home on a 12g only gun, you can easily refill this, and not waste your cartridges. On the field, are you going to carry a spare tank to refill this in a game? Probably not. Are you going to carry 4 or 5, almost $20 cartridges onto a field and risk losing any? Probably not.
But for testing purposes, I like this a lot.

Pghp8ntballer has it right. Just last night I was wishing I had something like this for testing a Nelspot. Sooo much cheaper than blowing through a dozen 12ies for bench testing even at 45$ for both parts.
