Mike's AR2079B with Tethered Tank.

Archer Airguns customer Mike, sent this information about his AR2079B air rifle.

Mike writes...

"I started shooting the AR2079B with the Dual 12G CO2 Adapter holding 2 x 12 gram Powerlets. This worked fine, however it was good for 40 shots.

I am shooting Metallic Silhouette which requires 40 shots leaving nothing for sighter targets. I like about 10 shots to sight in with. This means I would have to load two more cartridges to finish, leaving about half of the gas in the gun at the end of the match. I did not want to leave the gun charged or waste the gas.

The next step was to try a 9 ounce CO2 paintball tank. This rifle with a 9 ounce tank, valve and adapter weighs right at 11 pounds, all of it way out front.

So I went to my local paintball store, got a hose with a quick disconnect and set up the rig as you can see in the photos. This looks like it might work for me. Since I did not see anything like it on your website, I thought you might be interested."

Mike, yes that's a very interesting, innovative and practical looking setup. Thanks for sharing and I wish you well with your AR2079B at Metallic Silhouette matches!

Mike's AR2079B has an Archer Airguns Paintball Tank Adapter for QB79 fitted, with a RAP 4 On/Off Valve with Gauge. His paintball hose is attached between that and the 9-oz CO2 tank.
