It might make more sense to tape the hand warmer to the valve body, rather than than the bucket. Theoretically, if the valve body is heated in cold temps, it may expand liquid CO2 into a gas prior to the shot (depending on both the outside temp and how warm the valve body gets). This should increase efficiency, but I have my reservations about how much help a hand warmer on the gun would really make.

Moving to AZ does beat out hand warmers as far as 12-gram efficiency goes.

Ya, hand warmers are not worth much without some form of insulation. I don't think simple tape would be enough. I also wonder if they could get to hot or if their temp would very enough to cause large dips and spikes in velocity.

Nice collection of Phantom's.

Did you have to re-spring the gun switching over to HPA?

No, all stock internals. My field won't play if its below 20 deg F. I've hardly ever had to adjust the velocity. Works perfectly with the stock spring. It makes a great set up for Minnesota in spring and fall when we have huge temp swings. It's not unheard of to start the day at 30deg and be up to 60 by 12:00.

I just noticed this past Sunday, temps in the lower 50's, that I was getting about 5 less shots out of my Phantom compared to a mid 60 to low 70 degree day. Therefore I know Co2 season is coming near the end and I was contemplating on getting a bottom line kit for my Phantom to run HPA in the colder temps, that being the reason I asked.

Thanks

I keep my 12ies in the waistband of my underwear when playing in the winter. They stay warm.

Better hope those seals stay intact. Otherwise it would give new meaning to "numb nuts".
