View Full Version : small tank question

I have been off the scene for awhile and excuse me if I mix up some of the lingo and sound dumb. What is the smallest refillable Co2 or compressed air tank that you can get that will work with most spyder guns. Im into the old school guns, so that may narrow it down a bit. I remember seeing a 5oz tank that was basically just a mini version of the run of the mill 20 oz. Im real stingy with taking a shot so the size of a tank isnt really an issue for me, but at the same time I dont want to be using the 2oz throw away cartridges. So any and all input is good, thanks guys

Oh and btw, I tried the search but it only seems to function about 10% of the time for me.

3.5oz is your smallest refillable tank. then comes 9, 12, 16, 20, and 24.

awesome man, thank you. Im guessing that gets about 250-300 rounds of paint through it or so. Like i said been out of the loop a long time, so that may be WAY off.

hmm. something like that. bamf and some of the other hardcore pumpers should know. but 200 sounds about right.

Yeah I checked an ebay seller, says 175. So prolly 125 solid shots, 50 sloppy ones.

Really depends on the marker. You cannot put a shot count on the tank. I use a 4oz straight into the VA on my Compact and get around 225 shots. You can get small compressed air tanks as well. Like 13ci @ 3000psi small -
