THere are SO many variables. Heck, humidity will effect it. The way you hold your gun will effect it. Shoot downhill all day, if you get 400 you will be lucky.

Well isn't that fantastic. Good for you. MY A-5 gets pretty low air efficiency. Don't know why; don't really care. And I care even less for ignorant people that don't know what they are talking about. Why in the heck would you tell me that I'm lying when you have never actually shot my gas hog?

 

YES I FOUND ANOTHER!!!!

Hmm. I see how it is.

27 times 20 equals around 555 shots there you go...

At what temperature?  CO2 volume will remain constant but pressure will chage greatly with temperature.  I don't know where you got your numbers, but for a static vessel, it should be somewhere near 80 shots per ounce.  So, with CO2 a higher temperature will produce more pressure and a lower temperature will produce less pressure.  But wait, the act of firing the marker will reduce the pressure slightly, and according to the law of conservation of energy will also lower the temperature.  Which by the way is why when you rapid fire, the tank will get colder.  So, if you shoot slower the temperature inside the tank, and thus the pressure, will remain higher for a longer period of time.

Ok, class dismissed. 

Yes!!!!!!!!!!! A SMART A$$, A FELLEW SMART A$$ TO HANG OUT WITH THANK YOU GOD!!!

Obviously expansoin chambers/regulators and remote lines. But also any bolt upgrades you get are likely the decrease the number of shots.

There is no set amount of shots you will get from a 20 oz. It all depends on how fast you shoot, the temp outside, and some upgrades also effect shots per tank.

BTW, the A-5 on CO2 is not a speedball gun.  You will not get good air efficincy by shooting as fast as you can.  I shoot 11bps full auto, using short controlled bursts of 3 to 6 rounds, and still get 900 rounds or more from my 20oz.  And I do not have an expansion chamber, nor do I need one.

Oh, so your saying that if you play speedball (shooting faster and more often) you will get less shots...? Compared to woodsball (not shooting as much and shooting less often.) You get more shots?

wow. I hadn't thought of that, it does make sense ....nice
