Some reviews spoiled it. Bad reviews I guess.

No, not lots of stuff; only a handful. Which is why I asked.

And I've run a WA on propane for years with no problems. Knowing what upgrades to use goes a long way.


@NessMcCool: if you're worried, get HFC134a at Lozeau.

Yeah, but that one that you showed me is difluoroethane, I checked on the can itself. Sad.

Anyways, couldn't find any HFC134A... I've done a lot of computer store, and it's all the difluothing.

I was wondering if there is an alternative... who uses TM ggb? Where do you buy your duster? Do you use HFC134A or another duster gas?

Thanks

You have a TM pistol?

Use propane.

EDIT: Read you were using a Desert Eagle. That thing BEGS to be run on propane. Don't run it on anything less!

you want the 8oz Blow off which is also the non-flammable 134a.



http://www.blowoff.com/msds/134amsds.html

CAVEAT: Do not get the green label Blow off that is in the 10oz large bottles. Those contain Ethane,11,-Difluoro ie 152a.

Coachster your jumping to conclusions. Dust off Special Applications Branded cans are infact HFC134A or Tetrafluoroethane.

Clickly the link and read the Material safety data sheet.


Cheers.


Although the blow off brand you speak of is also HFC134A. I only listed the Dust off special applications stuff because you can order it online easily.

Stop recommending HFC134 and start recommending propane!

The TM DE can take it EASILY.

never started recommending hfc134 over propane!

OP asked for HFC 134a and since this is the newbie tank, they are welcome to the 'appropriate' answer. no need to shove propane down their throat if they choose to run hfc134a.

yes, the TM DE can very well run well on propane.

It would seem the earlier TM DE's where the ones that encountered the most problems running propane.


Either way. Its up to the owner to decide.
