I have a 2240 and just returned from the local paintball shop to buy a 12gr Co2 tank, as I converted to a bulk system. The store owner tried to sell me an air tank instead. He said that I didn't have to modify my gun because the air tank is regulated at 800psi which is the same as co2..
It kinda makes sense...

My question is, why would you need to modify anything on the gun if the PSI is the same?

It depends on how the bulk conversion was done.... If properly and safely for CO2, then the typical paintball tanks, which are regulated to 800-850 psi, will actually have less pressure than CO2 on a hot day.... The answer to your question will depend on the quality of the bulk conversion....

As long as you stick with CO2 pressures. Nothing should have to be changed. Its harder to find shops in NS to fill CO2. HPA is much more common.

hpa is more consistent and suffers less from cooldown the way co2 does and as a result does not suffer from loss in projectile velocity. i have co2 airsoft guns that i have converted to hpa instead. an added bonus of using hpa is i can go to a scuba shop, paintbal shop or really any place that has the proper air compressor to fill the tank as well as being more reliable in colder conditions.

Using the same size tank, wouldn't you be getting less shots with compress-air (specially @ 800psi) than with CO2?

Same size tank filled to 3k and regulated down to 800 equals lots of shots.
