umm you just said it..your co2 was running low. But get an expansion chamber regardless, saves you air. I use to have an a-5 and those things are gas hogs until you get an expansion chamber.

Gas hogs, eh? Might explain why my A5 only got ~800 shots instead of 1000 shots from CO2.

yup, there is more math to it. But basically just say because of the cyclone feed using gas, every one pull of the trigger or shot, is equal to 2 shots of air...well around there.

the cyclone feed uses excess gas, so the statement is totally untrue... the a-5 is basicly just a gas hog, it has nothing to do with the cyclone feed.
