    Anyone have a Tokyo Mauri Hi Capa and use duster gas in it? Does it work well for you?

    How many rounds out of a can do you get?

    Is Airsoft Innovations the only one with the Duster Can adapter? Saw a GG can extension but don't know if that would work as well.

    Thanks

    I haven't used duster gas in my Hi-Capa but I can try it on Friday.

    TM guns are designed to run on Duster. You'll get better gas efficiency out of it at normal operating temperatures, and you'll want to switch over to Propane when the temperature starts dropping below about 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

    AI makes the only duster adaptor that I know of, but it's not your only choice for usable duster. Behold:

    It's not too hard to do with the right size brass tubing and solder.

    Look forward to hearing how Duster gas works for you (or anyone else). If I can locate a TM Hi-Capa, I plan to use Duster gas only so it would be great to know how long a 10 oz lasts, how the slide operates and how accurate it is. You'd think it works pretty good since that's what they use in Japan with these.

    That's sort of like saying, "I'm looking forward to seeing how this Honda Accord runs on unleaded gasoline." The answer is "good." It's what it was designed to do.

    That's what I'm hoping for. Don't plan on using it outside.

    I don't see any youtube videos showing using Duster gas. The ones that mention what they're using say propane. Don't see anything that states how many shots they get out of a can of duster gas. I'm sure someone knows. It certainly won't be as cheap as Coleman propane but wonder if it's cheaper than using co2 carts. I see sales on Duster gas from time to time.

    Thanks

    You get more shots on a fill of duster than you do on a fill of propane in the same gun, as long as the slide isn't too heavy to cycle well with duster. TM guns are designed to be used with duster, so the slide isn't too heavy. You will get more shots out a fill with duster than propane. On my WA 2011, I could get over 70 shots with duster and only about 35 with propane. It's not always a 2:1 ratio like that, but that's not uncommon either.

    That would depend on what you consider "better." You get higher FPS, and thus better terminal range out of propane, a harder perceived kick, you can install a stiffer recoil spring without fear of damage so you can achieve a crisper and quicker slide cycle. You would give up gas efficiency and perhaps some durability if you don't upgrade things like the barrel and loading nozzle as well. Overall, I'd run most stock TMs on propane and say to hell with the worse gas efficiency. As long as you're getting a full mag off, it doesn't really matter. I'd never reload the bbs in a gas mag without refilling it with gas, too.
