This is a gun I have wanted for a few years. I think I have pestered everyone on this site that has one to sell it to me. But no bites........so when .357 Hunter put his up for sale I had to jump at it. Fit and finish is impressive, and looks to be the same quality as some of the other Umarex guns I have owned.

Now to stock up on 88gr CO2 :mrgreen:
Does anyone know where I can get the dummy 88gr that takes the smaller powerlets?

He offered it to me first but since I was already getting another gun from him, felt it best not to piss off the boss too much and passed. Good to see it went to someone that can enjoy it. Apparently it has some very nice open sights. Do these not take the normal 12g carts?

No it doesn't. It uses the large 88g threaded cylinders. With a 30 round mag I think a 12g wouldn't suit the gun. I have found an adapter on Amazon that will do the job. Its pricey, but worth it to give you the option of using a 12g.

Sure hope you're not planning on ordering that, especially when you realize it was built in China for under a buck. These 90g are a bit overpriced but the cheapest I could find: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/jt-co ... p.html#srp

If anyone knows where I can get these 88g CO2 cartridges in Calgary for a better price, I'm all ears. Could use some for the 1070 (have the adapter). But $11 per cartridge is a bit much compared to the cost of the 12g powerlets (get mine at $.50 each). However the inconvenience of replacing these every 4 magazines gets old fast.

And that CX4 would be even hungrier, making me question if it's worth it using 12grams with it. If the adapter in the link u posted cost a tenth the asking price, sure. But the price is just ridiculous.

Knowing this about the CX4 I'm glad I didn't jump on it. It's your problem now :goodman:

Btw didn't mean to sound like a smart asterisk above, was taken by the cost of this part and the huge markup. But then again I suppose that's the price one pays for something that no one else has and it does provide a solution to those without easy access to the 88g cartridges. And since Umarex is the distributor, sure that a lot of R&D was devoted to this, after all it is a device that holds a good amount of pressure.
Guess the CX4 comes with a certain additional cost, regardless which fuel configuration one chooses to go with.

I would recommend that you DO NOT get that adapter above for the CX4. If you wanted to put the butt cover back on it would require a hole for the adapter to stick out and it would stick out almost two inches.

I have the Walther adapter suggested by waltherglocksmith in a previous post in this thread. It works well and almost fits - it's about 1/16 inch too long and though the butt cover snaps in place it doesn't quite mate up. I am sure a little work with a file on the plastic cartridge piercing screw knob would make it fit perfectly.

Thanks for the heads up......I checked the physical dimensions and it is longer than the 88g. :D

Oh, BTW where did you get yours? from the same place that waltherglocksmith posted the link to?

Or, if you don't mind replacing cartridges more often (guess around every 25 or so shots) there's always this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Paintball-New-Q ... 1759040956

In case link doesn't work, here's the pic. Price is right too, around can$16 and free shipping from China.

I had looked at those,but the ones with the 88g thread and not a paintball, but I think they are too short making it difficult to screw in all the way unless material was added to make it the same length as the 88g

You have the wrong version of this adapter linked here, Joolz. There is one with the correct threads on the end however, because I have one. I used it primarily when I had the CX4 apart to work on. The CX4 can be fired without the plastic shell on it and it was easy to use this adapter on the bare gun. I did use it with the shell on the gun by first using a socket wrench to seat the end of the adapter and then I filed a slot in the back end of the other part of the adapter so I could turn it with a piece of steel after putting the 12g cart in.

OK, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here's the correct adapter with my crudely cut slots in it:

I tried for ages to get one of these Walther adapters back a couple of years ago without luck. I gave up and moved on to other projects, then a couple of months ago a member here posted one for sale and I jumped all over it! If I remember correctly he got it from Poland.

As for how it fits, here's a link to another post in this forum where I commented and posted pics of how close it fits:

Close enough.....im sure enough material could be trimmed from either the inside of the butt pad or the knob to make it nice and snug. Thanks for the pictures :D

Good to know these work (well, the one with the proper threads that is) and the screw driver slots you created is a simple solution to compensate for the short reach. Bit of a thread hijack but wanted to ask you this: any chance you've experimented with 12OZ bottles on the 1070? Local airsoft store never even heard of 88g cans but sell the 12 and 20 Oz bottles for very cheap, making this an economical ventured compared to the smaller cartridges. Not to mention they'd last a lot longer, have an open/close valve and are refillable. The 12Oz bottles may be small enough to fit the 1070's 88g adapter but before I bring these there to try on, figured I asked first. Your sig indicates we both own similar guns, would bet there's a 1070 in there somewhere - and you're clearly a gas tinkerer :!:
