Co2 laws
« on: February 18, 2015, 09:20:35 AM »
I've been looking at the benjamin discovery and wondering since it can be filled with co2 does that class it as a pcp or does it need to be filled with hpa to be classed as a pcp??

pnuematic=air.
Co2 is not air.
Pressures, though.

And was it's original intention, or design to be filled with air so therefore it will be class as a pcp?

How would it be "made to be straight co2"? There's nothing that can physically limit
the PCP's use to CO2 that would prevent it from being filled with air at the same pressure.

Unless you mean making it non-precharged by converting to disposable CO2 cartridges.
(paintball tanks are open for dispute because they can be filled with air)
