How long does an air rig keep pressure from a co2 canister?

If I load a co2 canister (12g) into an air rig, how much "life time" can I expect from it, normally? I heard a minimum of pressure loss is normal between QD and regulators, because that is how they keep the pressure to consistent levels..

Anyway, if I load a co2 canister and leave the rig be as is, connected to my magazine..and go long should it stay at the desired PSI?

That works, or if you put some NaOH at any joints and then test with litmus paper - if it comes out basic it's not leaking, if it comes out acidic it is.

NaOH reacts with CO2 to form Carbonic Acid.
