I don't think your valves would appreciate the extra pressure if you were able to make a 'CO2 Adapter'.

there's something called a regulator and a psi gauge in which you can monitor/select how much psi you put into something.

if you are talking about the 12 gram cartridges, then you require a CO2 specific mag and pistol which is made to hold up to the higher pressure.

btw, there is a CO2 adapter that's been around for a while. you simply dial up the PSI you want and fill. the fill nozzle is also the same dimensions as the propane one.

before you get all excited about using CO2 in your pistol mags, DON'T DO IT!!! you will blow all the seals and valves!

just because the madbull CO2 charger can be dialed down to a safer PSI, doesn't mean you GUN is capable.

We use CO2 purely for 40mm showers.

HPA is the same. it's a cheaper, more consistent replacement for CO2 (in paintball) as it doesn't have the cool down effect. I have tested it in the Madbull CO2 grenades and it has done extremely well.

before you get all excited about using HPA in your pistol mags, DON'T DO IT!!! you will blow all the seals and valves. you won't get much capacity out of it because HPA takes up more space (volume) for the same output pressure.
