Hey guys, got a question that might sound really stupid but here goes..

with compressed air canisters, what would the difference between a 72ci 3000psi tank, a 72ci 4500psi tank and a 72ci 5000psi tank be??
obviously the psi is different but what actual difference would this make between the tanks as they are all the same ci??

They would be the same size tank but you will get way more shots the higher the psi. Get a 4500 if you're buying. I've never seen anyone fill 5000 before.

The deference is that you get more shots out of a 4500 psi ... CI Is just the size of the tank the bigger the more air it holds.. Just like Co2 tanks the more ounces the more shots you get. (only in CI)

so am i right in saying that it means you can basically squeeze more air into a higher psi tank beacause it can handle a higher pressure?
