View Full Version : Hpa tank.

02-18-2006, 10:21 AM
Ok so i play front/mid and was looking to upgrade to a cheap tank. I found these two at action village and was wondering,"what should i get?". I was thinking the 3000/48 because i play front and will be moving alot. Wouldnt the 68 be too heavy? I had one on a ion with a halo b with no paint and was shocked by how heavy it was.

Heres the links:


Are these good tanks? I know they are aluminum and all but when i get more $$ i will upgrade to a fiber wrapped tank.

Thanks ahead of time. :)

I have a 20 ounce C02 at the moment, would the 48 be the same weight?

the 48's abooooooooout the same weight, maybe a bit heavier.
the 72's like a 20 oz + a 9 oz together.

get a medium/large drop forward to help offset the weight inbalance...it'll shift the tank forward on yer marker so it's less noticable

Err... wont i need a new hose?

you might...depends on where the asa falls in relation to where it was (distance-wise). You can always go woth macroline and fittings...

Hmm would i need a new hose with this drop? Or is this not a bigg enough drop?

you should be able to use it...if anything there might be a slight bend in the hose...but that won't hurt nuthin...

02-18-2006, 05:17 PM
