    Ok so I have two CO2 pistols and I've been wondering what I can possibly do with the leftover empty cartridge?

    Cant people just fill them up and reseal them? Or do not many people have machines that can do that lol? Can you maybe even bring it to a place that will fill them for a certain price?

    If not any of that is there any way to actually recycle them lol? I don't think they would go in the recycle bin lol XD

    I think that most are one use only. Your best bet would just be to use a recycling bin.

    Save them up and take them to a Scrap Yard, you can get money for them, but you need a lot, several pounds in fact, but you can always put the money back into your Airsoft fund.

    Our local paintball shop used to take the empty CO2 powerlets and would give you a certain amount of money in store credit for each one. It worked out so if you saved like 25 of the empties and took them to the store, they would give you something like 1/2 off a new box of the same count. They recycled the empties.

    Yea I was thinking that too, and I just weighed them and they're about 1 ounce each lol, so 16 equals a pound, and I have like 50 lol.

    But also, what metal are they made of? Aluminum? Steel? Something else lol?

    I'm not sure, but I would guess aluminum, use a magnet and test them. If the magnet sticks, most likely steel, if not aluminum or brass.
