Certain conditions such as improper storage or very rapid firing can negatively effect the efficient performance of your CO2 pistol.
1. Do not store your pistol in an area of unusually high or low temperature. High temperature can cause incresed pressure in the CO2 cartridge leading to a malfunction or permanent damage to the pistol. Low temperatures can reduce pressure in a CO2 cartridge leading to weak shots. Do not leave your gun unattended in bright sunlight. The C02 cartridge can get too hot and explode, damaging the gun and injuring or killing anyone nearby.
2. Rapid-fire shooting will quickly chill a CO2 cartridge leading to reduced pressure and pellet velocity.
3. Rapid fire shooting leads to reduced shooting efficiency.
4. As the cartridge loses pressure you will notice several characteristics:
A) The sound of the actual shot will not be as loud.
B) Pellet impact will be lower on the target. Adjusting
