Hi, I recently purchased a PMI Trracer on eBay and planned to hook it up to a 9oz CO2 for a cheap woodsball gun. I recently, however, found out about the little 12g CO2 cartridges that many people use with pump guns and am wondering if I could use these cartridges as propellant for my Trracer. It hasn't shipped yet so I can't just slot one in and see.

As far as I know it's unmodded - stock barrel, no bottomline or anything.

I'm new to the field of pump guns so I don't know much about propellants and such... if someone could just quick answer this for me that'd be great.

Thanks -Nick

You could use either no problem. Thing is that a 12g will give you maybe 50 shots whereas a 9oz bottle will give you about 250. 12g cartriges are used mostly for stock class paintball, where you only hold 10 rounds at a time on your pump and 10 round tubes that look like test tubes to reload.

Hi, thanks for the reply

At this point, I guess my choice mainly depends on my shot conservation and style of play. My main question was about the compatibility.

Question answered I'd say. Thanks again.

You will most likely have to pick up a 12 gram adapter to use 12 grams. If you are just wanting to use it as a cheap woodsball gun i would stick to just a 9oz tank with a buttplate. then u can use that as a stock to help steady your shots and line up faster on your target. every shot counts when playing pump.

Yeah, looks like I'll have to pick up an adapter somewhere... most of the stores nearby are out of stock so I'll see what happens. Might just end up with a 9oz like Timber_Ghost suggested.

you will definately be happier with a 9oz tank if you are not planning on playing stock class. especially if you are new to pump play. 12 grams are going to be more expensive anyway if you already have a tank...

You could have something better than 9oz co2. Get one of them 13cu 3000psi tanks from guerrilla air or ninja paintball, they're awesome for pump play.

Wild, I've never heard of these before. Pretty slick. I'm not really sure I see the point though. You're not firing in rapid sucession so you shouldn't be concerned about consistent air pressure. I guess for playing in the cold it'd be slick.

I just use 12 grams for my phantom. I have a 3 oz co2 tank but I never use it.

Some places are phasing out CO2 fills entirely my local field actually switched all their rental setups over to steel HPA tanks last year. In the fall they stopped filling CO2 tanks and this summer they said they are probably not going to bring them back and just rent out HPA tanks instead.

Yes those tanks look great
i was looking at them on action villiage
says you can get 100-150 shots off of one
that seems alot better than 12grams to me

Honestly though, it's a traccer... is hpa necessary? I dont think so. All stock class guns run off CO2. I personally don't thing hpa is going to make that big of a difference on a pump gun... especially a mid range pump like the traccer/maverick. and for $70 he should definately wait and use the money to play for a little bit with to make sure that pump is right for him.

Though it may seem unnecessary, it does become necessary when your field stops supplying CO2 for example. Or that HPA makes for much nicer play in the winter so you can have only 1 tank for all seasons to play, without the extra bulk. It's a personal choice, we're just naming the options.

fair enouugh.... i'm just saying hpa isnt all that necessary for an entry level pump. But if CO2 is a no go because its getting phased out at your field or you play in colder climates... you definately can't go wrong with hpa. C02 is easier to obtain for me because I have several sporting goods stores within 10 minutes from my house as opposed to driving for 40 minutes to get to my proshop which is the only place besides the local field that fills hpa. I often play with a bunch of friends in my woods since my family owns around 115 acres of forest. I love hpa. CO2 is just more convenient for me.
