Hi guys.

The other day, I was looking at a video about the Qb79 with 9oz co2 bottle.
Does anyone know about how many shots per tank?
Also, where can someone buy one in Canada?
I like the idea that it could also be used with airforce 88gr. bottles or even a remote reservoir.

I think Archer Airguns shows a shot count. I think it was >600? Of course it varies with a lot of factors but the bottom line is a lot :)
I don't know about CA, but Archer obviously sells tanks and the adapter needed, or the whole gun ready to go. Walmart carries just the bottles, I bought one maybe 5yrs ago for ~$12US? I think mine is 20oz which I think is too big to fit the gun? They're meant for paintball guns, so that's where you can buy tanks and fill them. Optionally you can fill from a larger tank, like a welding tank. I have a 35lb alum take I use to fill misc smaller tanks from. I don't use them for guns but fyi it's better to get a bigger tank imo and fill your own, but do the math to see if it's worth it for you. And if shooting from one position like a bench you can always feed from a tube connected to the big tank. I've never tried it but I have some thin nylon tube ~.090"OD that claims to have a 1500psi burst strength (mfg; Scanivalve), but -3AN braided line is far more common, easier to get, stronger and I'd imagine what people use?

i had to go through Bob's posts, because I couldn't remember if he posted a $200 pcp in General or Mods, but anyways. A good read:
