Looking for CO2 cylinders

Is the JT brand from CanadianTire any good? They used to sell Crosman but now switched to JT, and the reviews are not too good.

Is there a better option to get, say, 50 decent CO2 cylinders in GTA?

Thanks.

They are all the same. The 25 pack at CT is the better price!

40 @ $34.99 = 87 cents each
25 @ $18.99 = 76 cents each
5 @ $4.99 = 99 cents

Or, wait for a paintball store to have a big sale. I have gotten them for 50 cents each.

I was at Le barons in Etobicoke earlier this week and I bought a pack of FORTY crosmans for 19.95!

I also have a 25 pack of JTs, and while i cant say anything for them really, I havent noticed anything necessarily BAD about them

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

When I used to buy the 12g cartridges I would get the 25 count boxes of crosman at Walmart for about $19. Now I think they sell the copperhead brand ones for a bit more but they might still have the crosman ones too.

Thanks.
The JT ones are rebranded(seconds) Lelands. Which are one of the best.
Crosmans are SHIT! full of oil and junk.
Lelands are hard to get in Canada, however we have Mosa's which are just as good. There used to be a Canadian seller on ebay but it appears they are no longer.

Lelands and Mosa are food grade which means no oils and crap like crosman. Do yourself a favour and stear clear of them.

I have gone through over 120 of the Jt/Crossman ones from CT (get two 25 packs... it's cheaper) Through my WE M4. No issues even when it was snowing out.

Thanks guys! Just picked up a 25 pack from CT, ran a couple of them through my pistol, and didn't notice any problems. I will check LeBaron when I'm in the area, but having CT 2 blocks away solves the issue. Thanks again!

+1
Stockclass pump paintballers have done extensive testing on 12g CO2 cartridges and found Lelands and Mosa to be the best.
Not only are they cleaner, they are much more consistent (crossman sometimes gets duds and inconsistent fills). Only way to get them i believe is bulk buy. But i do believe that Lelands are being sold and repackaged in smaller packs as "Special Forces" and for decent prices. Havnt seen them here in Vancouver although you could probably get them online. Otherwise, you can buy Mosa bulk from ICO trading (which is based in Port Coquitlam, BC).

As for Crossmans being dirty, that is true. They contain oils. A lot of stockclass pump paintballers who werent use to cleaning the insides of their marker (because it wasnt necessary with HPA) found that when they opened up the valve in their markers found a build up of black gunk inside from the oils. If you're regularly cleaning your GBB, it shouldnt be a problem, but its something to take note of

The 25 pack at CT is still cheaper and easier to get with stores all over.
