How Long Do CO2 Cartridges Last?

If you’re wondering how long you CO2 cartridge will last, it depends on the size of the cartridge and power of your air gun. However the simple answer is:

A 12g CO2 cartridge provides about 40 shots from an air pistol, while an 88g cartridge offers up to 200 shots from an air rifle.

How Many Shots From A 12g CO2 Cartridge

A 12g CO2 cartridge usually lasts for around 40 full-powered shots out of your pistol. After that you’ll likely start to lose power.

You will be able to get more than 40 shots out of it, but keep in mind that if you keep firing your pellet pistol after the power has tailed off, there eventually won’t be enough power left to push the pellet out, which’ll end up blocking it up.

A big factor that’ll influence this is the power of the pistol you’re using – as more powerful ones will use more CO2, and less powerful ones will use less.

  • More power = less shots
  • Less power = more shots
