Why High Quality CO2 Is Important to your air rifles?
Air rifle CO2 cartridges are very inportant, since most of the troubles involving CO2 driven air rifles are unworkable and clogged valves or failed o-rings and seals. In most cases, low quality CO2 cylindesr were the main cause of these troubles. The working life and performance of your CO2 airgun’s valve and seals are seriously determined by the quality of the CO2 you are using. Other factor is the type of seal that the cylinder makes against the o-ring. Impure CO2 can decrease the pellets’ velocities and lower the number of shots per cylinder.

There are many brands of CO2 cartridges on the market today and you should choose the cleanest CO2 for your gun. However, it is almost impossible to know brands offer the highest quality CO2. There are some ways you can know, for example, going through several o-rings or cutting open the capsules to check the inside.
