Refillable 12gram co2 powerlets (reusable - not disposable)

Why buy refillable 12-gram CO2 cartridges? There are a few reasons worth your consideration.

First, check out this site to see how much energy is required to put a tablespoon of CO2 into a small bottle. Tossing empty cartridges is like throwing away a spoon after each bite.

Second, once you own a refillable CO2 cartridge, anytime you need an additional 12-grams of CO2 in a bottle, you can refill it with a nickel's worth of CO2. The savings will add up.

Third, on cold wintry plinking days, when you're out protecting your nuts, jerk that cold partially used CO2 cartridge from your gun and replace it with a warm one from your pocket to give those squirrels the power they deserve. Meanwhile, your partially empty cartridge will warm back up in your pocket for a 2nd go-round.

Refillable 12-gram cartridges are $12.95 each.

In addition to Dan's questions, I'd be interested to know how the cartridge reseals...

...when partially used and then removed from the gun.

Are you sure you understand how hammer-driven piercing pins in popular guns like the Crosman 22xx series work?

That's what I was wondering also Steve. If it's resealed by a tire valve stem, like in the mods I've seen online, I don't see how it could possibly work with a Crosman 22xx or QB7x type gun. I don't see how enough CO2 for a shot would be released when the pin strikes the valve on the capsule. Unless he's developed a new way of sealing them.

Not the smartest thing ever uttered here

one it is illegal, two it is wholly unsafe, and three you waste far more CO2 trying to fill than it would have cost to buy a 12g.

if you pay more then 50 cents fora 12g you have been taken find a better source

if you do not know NT then try to figure it out in context, do not ask as you look the fool for not bothering to read much at all.

I don't think there's any law prohibiting refillable 12g cartridges.

Notice that he doesn't say they're made from disposable cartridges or modified from them. Assuming that they're not, I don't see how these would be any different than any other refillable CO2 bottle.

Even if they are though, I'm not sure there are any laws being broken. There are several places online selling kits to refill disposable Airsource cartridges.

Site makes no mention of 12 gram rather they seem to think 16 gram will fit BBguns

Not sure the technology is up to date with the 'need'


Anyone remember the ones that took a Shrader valve? They would work in the 150 and 180 crosmans and most grip housed CO2 pistols

i drink so much seltzer water that i'm probably gonna buy a fizzGizz...

...and even though i don't shoot anything with 12g (or 16g) cartridges, i might even try a refillable cartridge (since i've got a 30# tank in the hallway).

believe me, i've looked at all the other carbonation systems and their proprietary cartridges and there's no way i'll bite on them.

so if i do, i'll try to pass along as much info as i can.
