Having used propane and dealt with cold weather issues, getting consistent good fills, frozen valves but having the freedom of not being tied into a hose. Is compressed air so much better from a training perspective that it makes it worthwhile?

What pressures are being used to keep from blowing seals?

Is it common to plumb several mags for this power source?

I lived in FL so never had issues with propane. Compressed air is definitely more consistent than the other alternatives since you control everything. Don't remember the pressures, probably gun dependent. I don't see a reason to make several mags. It takes like 5 seconds to load up a mag.

I use compressed air for my airsoft hicapa, I tapped and threaded my extended magazine to accept a npt fitting that would directly hook up with the fittng on my hose. Set the regulator on the compressor to 80PSI and keep the magazine attached to the hose when shooting. When it gets low the compressor kicks on and refills itself.
