Same here. Are you using CO2? I'm not quite sure yet, but I think thats the problem. After continual fire CO2 freezes up. IDK

Just get a steely. You can get them for $50-$60.

Well whatever field you play at you should find out if they fill 4500psi tanks or only 3000psi tanks. I would personally suggest a 3000psi tank, because some fields may not be able to fill 4500psi.
If this helps. There are 3 kinds of weight in tanks.

Steel-cheapest but heaviest

Aluminum-a bit more expensive but lighter than steel

CF (Carbon Fiber) wrapper (aluminum) most expensive because carbon fiber isn't cheap to manufacture. It's wrapped over (sometimes a thinner-walled) aluminum tank to increase the hull integrity of the tank, while dropping it's overall weight.

Watch though. Some tanks are massive and thats the last thing you want is a massive tank on the back of your gun...

Also there are a coulple main sizes. (In cubic inches) With 3000psi you get about 10 shots per cubic inch.
48ci-480 shots
68ci-680 shots
72ci-720 shots
88ci-880 shots
110ci-1100 shots
With 4500psi tanks you get about 15 shots per cubic inch.

Personal opinion, Carbon Fiber wrapped 68ci 3000psi tank = )
