Hey, guys i was just wondering does the CI of the tank matter on how many shots you get. For example i have a PMI 68ci 4500psi tank will mine have more shots lets say agasint a 45ci 4500psi tank. Im asking this because in about a month ill be getting an invert mini so the tank i have will be kinda big for it so i was thinking of getting like a crossfire peanut or something. So does cubic inches make a difference and any other suggestions on a HPA tank i should get for my Invert Mini?:confused:


thanks:)

P.S whats like the lighest tank out there?

yes, u will get more shots with the 68 ci. ci=cubic inches so it would be bigger therefore holding more air (u probly knew that but w/e). if u get refills at your field then go for the peanut those things are super tiny!

and go down and ull see a chart of how many shots u get for the size u want

48/45 are really tiny and feel weird at first compared to a 68/45

my 45 next to my 68's

Draxxus has the lightest tanks.

I would just keep the 68, I run a 68 on any gun I have ever owned and got the 45 just to run on a pump when I don't need as much air.

i think the invert mini is an LP gun. idk if it makes a difference but if it does... get the draxxus low pressure. i would also suggest u just buy it from an online store like zephyrpaintball.com they offer free shipping on orders $99+ and they have really fast shipping and actionvillage.com too.

whats the difference between high pressure and low pressure like i know that the high pressure set at around 800 psi and the low one is set at around 450psi whats the differnece does one waste off more then the other or does the other shoot farther? im so confuesed:P

with guns today, you dont need a low pressure tank, just get a regular 4500 psi tank in any size you think you would want, just know that 45CI is going to be a little smaller then the pictures would make it seem. your marker wont allow more pressure into it then its designed for (via the regulator). they will all shoot the same distance, 300 feet per second is 300 feet per second, no matter what kind of air your using.

hope this helps

Hey guys thanks for all the imput I forgot to metion i recently sold my 68ci tank but i just found a really good deal on New one and as well it comes with a Vlocity Jr hopper for around 250 bucks including shipping is that a good setup for my Invert Mini?

Eh... That's about right, so long as the Vlocity JR comes with a Gangstar chip and a speedfeed. The VL JR with chip and speedfeed's $100 at First Call, and the tank would be a bit more, probably $150-175.

I think that's a little high... but it's your money.

Keep in mind, you might want a heavier hopper with the 68/4500. The Mini is really light. So is the VLocity JR. You might have some balance issues.

I've never owned a Mini, but I've teched/chrono'd enough of them working at my field to know they seem to put a lot of weight towards the back/tank area.

Yea those mini's are tiny! I got huge cup cake hands and they just swallow that marker. Part of the thing with the tank pressure is that tanks with 800 psi will charge the marker's internal pressure quicker than a 400 psi. So if you are using a vs2 at 250 psi operating pressure, you wouldn't want to have the low pressure tank because it wouldn't recharge the marker fast enough and then it won't recock. With a higher low-end marker like a mini (maybe 150 psi operating pressure?) you should be able to run the 400 psi output tank and not have a recharging issue.

Bunch of good tank prices there.

Good price on a VLocity JR combo.

You don't need two threads on this. In response to your other thread, why do you have a light gun just to weigh down??? :confused: The point of the Mini is to be light, so keep it that way or get another gun, IMO. The VLocity JR is a good hopper, and the 68/45 of any brand (except Java) is a good size tank. They'll do you fine for any marker you buy.
