I'm getting a brand new 3000/47 HPA/N2 tank, what I'm askin is, is there A difference between any of them, I'm pretty sure the 3000psi steel tanks are all the sam, but just wanted to see what you guys think.

Are you talking about what is the difference between a 47ci tank, a 45, 68, 71? If thats what you are asking its just the size of the tank and how much room it has of air. If you are talking about the difference between 3000 psi, 4500 psi or 5000 psi, thats the maximum fill pressure. If you have 3 tanks, a 68ci/3000psi tank, a 68ci/4500psi tank and a 68ci/5000psi tank because the 5000psi tank can hold more air per square inch you'll get more shots than the other too. I hope that helps, or I may have just confused you more.

maybe he means company wise, if that they're basically all the same.

Go with a crossfire, seems to have the best recharge of most of the n2 tanks out there today. Mine's never let me down.

Guerrilla Air is supposed to have a better recharge than the Crossfire regs. I have an Assault by Guerrilla and I love it. Mine's on a 68/4500 bottle, but the reg will be the same on a 47/3000.

Centerflag tanks or Crossfire are top of the line. It really dont matter becuase the differences in recharge are minor.

I think I'm gonna get the wgp one cuz at sakworld, its 65$ in comparison to 80$ for a crossman...

I know what they different hpa tanks do, I was just wonfdering If one companies was significantly better than anothers.

well on AVI they have a 72/3k tank for 64 bucks, and a 47/3k tank for 60 i believe

Crossfire is by Far a lot better than any other brand. I would diffenately fork over the extra 15 to 20 Dollars for the Crossfire. They make good quality products.

I have a 48/3000 PMI tank that was mentioned above, and it has leaked from the pin valve numerous times, but PMI sends me a new o-ring to fix it everytime it breaks, Heh, but It is still a pain to take apart the Reg. to fix it everytime.

I diffenately suggest the Crossfire. Worth every penny..

Well, sak world proshop is 10 minutes from my house, so... Basically I've heard one person saying crossfires are worth the extra 15$, but mostly there the same? I wanna stick to ~47ci so I can use my redz tank cover on it. Besides, I don't want too much weight...

03-23-2006, 04:59 PM
well they really don't weigh that much .. unless your super duper weak ... that tank doesn't weigh as much as the paint you put in the gun IMO ... but then again ... the tank on the side does help the center of gravity rather than right on top like a hopper ...

Yeah, but i want to be able to use my Redz cover that I've aleady got...

I'm gonna buy the WGP 3000/50 unless someone has a reson why not to buy that.

03-23-2006, 05:16 PM
eh ... i dunno if that 47/3k'll last you even one game though ... even if your gun is efficient ...

Go with Guerilla Air. I know the CEO personally and they are good people.

Hey thanks, I just realized that sak world's got the Guerrilla Air tanks for 70$ I'll go for it.
Ooglie, I don't play speedball, just woodsball, and I think 600 shots should be fine for me for a game... They use 3000/47 PMI tanks at my field on the rentals, and I never ran low in one game with them. Plus its all day air for 10$ at my field so I just refill after every round. Plus I have two 20 oz. backup tanks for recball.
