Duster Gas

Can you use either 134a or 152a in a GBB, i'm only wondering because 152a is easier to find.

HFC152a "difluoroethane" is not recommended for use in GBB's. It has a weaker pressure, suffers more from cooldown effects, and there is rumor that it will also eat all your rubber o-rings for brunch.

Not to derail but I need to throw a duster gas question out there.

I occasionally use Duster on my MP7, shoots a bit hard for CQB. I use Falcon Dust-Off that I can get in bulk from Costco (only reason I will ever have a membership). Problem is, the plastic nozzle breaks off easily. I've wasted 2 cans of duster, nearly full because the plastic lip or nozzle breaks off with the AI adapter attached. Anyway around this?

I've found that if you wrap tape around the AI Adapter + the can (basically make that whole area solid) you will have less chance of breaking the plastic tube inside the can's lid.
