Location to buy CO2 cartridges in North York?
 
I live at York Mills & Leslie. Is there a general store near me that sells CO2 cartridges?

Thanks,
Frank2368

Le Barons has them for the cheapest I've seen.

I bought a crap load from Badlands. Something like $0.50 each at the time.

CT has them in a 40 pack for $29.99 which is $0.75

Which reminds me, I should stock up as I want to get a CO2 tire inflator for my bike.

If you don't mind ordering, Try this seller on Ebay

Pretty good prices on bulk purchase. Once the co2 mags and internals for my WE M4 are released, I'm ordering the 10 boxes of 50 from these guys :D

Two questions:

1. Canadian Tires has this type of Co2, is it the same size as the 12 gram co2? Can I use it on my airgun?

2. Do bicycle inflators work?

I don't wanna buy the 40 pack for 30.00 because i won't need that much.

Thanks,
Frank2368

1. No. That's an 88g cannister. It's about 2" in diameter and 10" long.

2. Just get the correct CO2 dude...

You don't have to buy a 40 pack. They sell them in smaller 5 packs too...

Thanks for the quick reply,

Can you give me the link to the 5 packs, I can't find it.

Off hand it cost about 8$ taxed from CT.

Not every product they have is listed on the site though...

Fair enough. I will go to Canadian Tire on Sheppard and buy one of those.

Thanks for all your help

Might wanna look into this a bit further.. Don't think your allowed to ship compressed gas through the mail..I could be wrong but don't think so.

You can't ship compressed gas by air mail. Nothing against shipping it by ground.

40 pack is just much cheaper. especially when it's to charge king nades to 750-800psi. lol

I agree. I always buy them in boxes of 40. It's much cheaper per cartridge tht way. But doesn't sound like he wants to spend much money. I'd rather buy a lot at once (knowing I will eventually use it) than to cheap out and get boned on the cost in the long term.

coach May 3rd, 2009 14:12

just tried 2 different CT's on my way home and neither had the 40 packs nor smaller. should have went to LeBarons. :(

Zakaib May 3rd, 2009 15:08

I've had dreadful experiences trying to find BBs and Gas (or any useful equipment of any kind, for that matter) in stores like Canadian Tire outside the city. You'll probably be okay trying various stores in the city, like you mentioned, but you might do well to check online as well.

If Canadian Tire has any of these things listed on their website, you might be able to track the right thing down without having to waltz all over the city. That is, of course, if you don't have any luck with your local store.

But I can say this for certain: don't try getting anything useful out of a CT north of Newmarket. They never have anything.

Frank2368 May 3rd, 2009 21:00

I just went to the one on Shepard... They ran out

coach May 3rd, 2009 21:52

CT has changed their website. You use to be able to check several stores at once to see if a particular item was instock. Currently you can only set it to search for the store you choose as your home store location.

I went through all the stores that I would typically go or would be able to get to easily and none had stock. A few of them had a 'call' for more info or some crap like that.

ILLusion May 3rd, 2009 21:56

I'm telling you... Le Barons ALWAYS has plenty of stock and is cheaper than Canadian Tire.

Ya, I just didn't think of it until I was actually home. Anyway, I did pick up a CO2 tire inflator from CT today and had a spare at home so I managed to pump up my tires with no effort. :p Sadly one 12g cartridge only fills about one 26" tire to 40ish psi. I run my slicks a little higher so I had to use a hand pump.

More importantly, I'm using my 20oz CO2 tank with the madbull charger so I have plenty gas for my nades. :D
