20oz is the largest CO2 tank you can put right onto a paintball marker. The bigger tanks are scuba sized. ;) HPA doesn't get many more shots than a CO2 tank...a 20oz will get you about 1,000 shots on an average day, and the 72ci/3,000psi HPA tank gets about 720 shots on an unefficient marker.

hah .. btw .. which you can get for 64 dollars :p ... actionvillage.. pmi tank .. heh .... well if your playing ... even 600 shots should be enough for the field .. since you'll get a refill anyways... ..unless ur some maniac magee .. that shoots ... 200 in 2 minutes....

on an untuned, stock marker - a 3000 psi tank gets roughly 10 shots per ci; a 4500 psi tank gets roughly 15 shots per ci. so...

47/3000=470 shots +/-
47/4500=705 shots +/-

was thinking myself of getting a big 4500 psi hpa tank, 70CI and up. went through 3 20oz co2 tanks last time, and about 2600 balls, , but also i play woods, so got a refill station myself onsite, but hpa would be nice for those cold weather games

If you go HPA, then get a Pure Energy 72/3k. They're on sale at www.pbgear.com for 64 bucks.

Ya, ive heard of those 32oz. tanks, and ive seen 24 oz. tanks for sale on the nation a looooooooooong time ago. As for HPA, for $140ish you can get a 68/4500 used on PbNation. Thats what i did. You just have to be careful who you buy from and check feedback. If it seems to good to be true it is. But theres planty of good deals over there.

you can get a 3lb tank on ebay fer $50.. thats like 48oz I think. and yes it will screw directly on the gun. Seen it done.. Although I would think it would be very heavy. It'd be heavy with a remote! lol
