hey i just bought an co2 mini uzi and im wondering if anyone has info on how i might go about converting the co2 magazine to accept a neumatic air line from a compressor or even a compressed air tank ? it eats the 12 gram co2 cartriges in one 25 round burst . can the mod be done ? has any one done this ? the air guns at the red river ex has air connected to one of their games im sure accuracy may decline but im more into shooting than replacing co2 cans ...any and all info would be appreciated thank you ....

If you are not hindered by being tethered to a tank, why not look into purchasing a bulk CO2 tank (5 or 10 lb). You can usually get these reconditioned from an extinguisher supplier for around $100. Going this route, you will not sacrifice performance as the pressure is the same. You would be able to shoot for a week straight off a 5 lb. If you're so inclined, you could go so far as to build a custom back pack to carry the bottle. A 5 lb tank weights about 25 lbs when full. The aluminum tanks are a little lighter. Additionally, you could use this tank to refill 4, 9 and 12 oz bottles.

On second thought, converting your system to accept a 12 or 24 oz bottle will also greatly increase shot count. Sorry, just woke up and I'm waiting for my brain to turn back into solid matter.

Hope this gives you some ideas.

Use one of the 12g cartridge adapters to connect it to a tank.
You might be able to get something like this to work Image

If not you would likely need to drill a hole in the side of the mag for the fitting to stick out. Most of the 12g adapters have the fitting in the side. I think I have seen some with it on the bottom, but I dont remember where.
