hi i was wonderin if i can use a 9oz pure energy c02 tank with an ion or if it would mess tha gun up.

u can use co2 on an ion only if the tank is anti syphoned, i believe costs 20$ at flagswipe

Even if it is anti siphoned i would really advise against it, at one of the b.y.o.p on nights there was a guy there using anti siphoned co2 and it still froze up his regulator=not good

Yeh not a good choice on the anti syphon... I know that HPA tanks are expensive but its worth it. Not only do you risk the reg being froze up, but if you get ANY co2 crystals in your noid your screwed! So i vote HPA.

yea i really sugest using hpa i used to run my ion with co2 if u shoot to fast it like complety freezez ur reg n air like comes out of the grip frame n stuff

The Ion was designed to be OMNI gas ready. Yes a siphon is required with CO2 but sure it works.
The problem with CO2 is the shoot down. You bought an electro to shoot fast right?
well the Co2 doesn't recharge enough pressure fast enough to keep up with the marker. That's why you get air.
If your just doing bushball and don't shoot over 4-5 balls a second then CO2 is fine and you won't have issues.

thanks man. got tha hpa though like the day i got the ion so no more answers are required. this post can be deleted i guess unless u wanna keep it up for other people that were in the same position i was. peace
