Auto mag 68 on co2

How does the mag run off 12 gram co2? How many shots would it get, and would it reach 290 fps?

Automags aren't the most efficient beasts. The problem isn't reaching 290 FPS, it's getting more than 10-15 good shots.

You're looking at about 12 per 12g, maybe 10 at 290 fps.

Some interesting reading...

Automags.Org Online Forums - 30 Shots from a classic valve w/ a 12G

Devolumizing does help with CO2 efficiency in the mag, but it does seem to bring the gas pressure up on the ball, especially if you go back to HPA without taking the filler out.

Efficiency is rate sensitive, so you have to consider how fast you like to shoot and the usual temperature you play in.
