Anyhow the guy there told me they are just compressed air, I'm like uh, "No, it says CO2. Look at the bottle..." Has bold letters "CO2".... pointing to the green diamond of non-flammable gas - No 2.
Just because people use on tools or guns the doesn't mean its air. I think its a misconception. I can see people filling these with compressed air if they run a paint ball range.
I was referring to to Lurpinator post about the N2 tanks. They are used for higher end Electro-pneumatic Paintball guns that cannot use Co2 due to electronics freezing up. Plus it (N2 tanks filled with compressed air) delivers more shot to shot pressure consistency due to not being affected by temperature which is very important in tournament play.
You cannot fill those same tanks with compressed. They are different valves.
See the difference.
Compressed Air (N2) Notice the regulator lacking on the CO2
The difference between a CO2 user
and N2 user
Yes co2 containers are filled with Co2.
