    What's the average power output of a co2 pistol?

    A point of interest, what's the average power output of a say; Walther CP88 or CP99 or a Beretta? I reckon it's about 2-3ftlbs, but would I be badly wrong?

    The more powerful ones are the 6inch 88 and S&W.
    Along with the Desert Eagle.

    What would you figure the power is on these, GN?

    Iv just bought a Crossman 2240 single shot pistol and the dealer recons they run at 5.5 which is quite high for a co2 so he tells me. Packaging says 460fps in.22 calibre which sould quite good to me. Tim

    DEagle 444 fps

    CP88 6 inch 418 fps

    S&W 6 inch 414 fps

    By comparison standard CP 88 is 370 fps

    I have all three of the above and the difference shows in that they hit harder and go further.
    The CP88 6 will repeatedly hit cans at 20 yards and was a bit of a revelation.

    But The S&W 79G from the 70s does over 500 fps and its .22 brother the 78G does 450 fps.

    My 78G is possibly my favourite co2 pistol.

    The longer the barrel, the more power. CO2 is not completely used with less than a 10" barrel.

    Obviously Texans would have 10 inch barrels on their co2 pistols
