Hey guys,

Im a lucky one from Germany who got the KWA MP7 2 months earlier than the USA customers.

My question is if there will be CO2 magazines (for cartridges) for the MP7?

i know this is probably a stupid question, but there are CO2 adapters for normal mags(technically for grenades)...would this ruin the gun or has this not been tested?

Gas & CO2 pressures are different. The KWA MP7 was not designed for dual use. So the answer is "YES".

CO2 doesn't go into liquid form unless it's under extreme pressure/cold at close to 5.1 atmosphere or -78 degrees F.

That said, the operating pressure will be close to 900psi and you won't get many shots.  If it'll operate, the results would be catastrophic explosion.  In short, NO, Hell NO.  

Paintball markers escape this by having internal regulation.

thats what i had thought...i dont have much experience with gas guns, i saw the question about co2 mags and just thought i would ask.

thanks for the answer  ^_^
