How Many Shots Can I Get From a QB79?

We’re often asked “How many shots can I get from one CO2 tank with a QB79?”

OK, so here’s the scoop...

The QB79 can be used with 3.5-ounce and 9-ounce re-fillable paintball tanks. Or a Daisy Avanti re-fillable tank. These are all mounted directly onto the gun. Alternatively it can be used with Crosman AirSource 88g tanks, in this case a Crosman AirSource/Paintball Adapter is required.

Our photograph compares a 9-ounce paintball tank to the Avanti tank, an AirSource tank with adapter and 12g Powerlets, as used on the QB78 model.

The number of “good” shots per tank are:

2.5-ounce Daisy Avanti tank about 150 re-fillable
88g AirSource tank (adapter required) about 220 single use
3.5-ounce paintball tank about 240 re-fillable
9-ounce paintball tank about 630 re-fillable

By comparison, a QB78 with two 12g Powerlets provides about 50 “good” shots before the point of impact starts to fall significantly.

As with many other things in life, “your mileage may vary”. But these figures are a good approximation.

Thanks for the comment. I'm glad that you're happy with your Archer Airguns QB78.

The carbine version (CAR78a) will shortly be back in stock, this could be an ideal gun for her :-)
