co2 for pcp?
somone i know says they bought a daystate pcp but it came with a mod kit or somthing that lets them use it as a co2 by putting 2 powerlets in the air chamber. is this right?
No he's talking rubbish, the "O" rings are different material + the pressures are different 800 - 900psi for Co2 and maybe 2000psi for a PCP.
In addition the geometry of the vale and transfer port is different.
apparently it has been modded with different valve and cap
You could do it, in the US there is a Stealth derivative that runs on Co2 or Air as does the Discovery but standard Daystates don't.
The biggest issue is the geometry set up to run on Co2 at 11FPE and in all probability you would be well over on air a PCP pressures.

I can count to potato.
lol thats what i though when he told me.

Can think of three, Logun S16X, all the AirForce (Stealth) line, and the Benjamin Discovery that will run on air or co2 without any seal issues.
But with a PCP rifle tuned to 11-12 foot pounds on air, would guess the co2 power level would be about 33-40% less, turning a 12 foot pound rifle into something closer to 7 or 8 foot pounds (will turn a 22 foot pound Benjamin into a 12 foot pound Benjamin).
