Can't speak for that specific gun, but for most pellet and BB guns, you're looking at about 75 shots. But they tend to release more CO2 with each shot to propel the heavier projectile.

My TF 11 will get me about 130 shots if I use semi only with a couple of seconds between shots. In auto burst fire, I get about 100 shots. If I use sustained auto, I'll bet about 80-90 shots. So with a single-shot pistol, I'm sure you should get at least 100 rounds per powerlet.

I have heard that it is around 200-300 rounds, but I havent tested it. It also depends on your gun, some could dump the gas in while others may be quite conservitive on their use.

For an NBB pistol, you're going to get a hell of a lot more than 40-ish rounds per CO2 powerlet. I think even my 100 round estimate is rather conservative.

My CPSport can do an estimated 80 shots. Desert Eagle only does 30, Sig SP2022 (.177g bb gun) 60-80 shots, and I think my friend's beretta 92FS can do around 80 rounds. Only the Desert Eagle has blowback.

Yeah, they're pellet / BB guns, so you can expect to get even more shots out of your gun based on that.

It's hard to say for sure without actually testing the gun. But no one really uses those clearsoft guns to play airsoft. The best you'll get from anyone is an estimate.

would you guys say that 12 gram C02 cartriges give more bang for the buck than green gas in a non-blowback?

Anything is cheaper than green gas. A can of green gas is about $20 and you don't get a whole lot of refills out of it.

Now, considering that with a propane adapter, you can use propane instead of green gas, that's WAY cheaper.

But other than a few exceptions, there really aren't many non-blowback green gas guns out there, so the point is rather moot.
