my electra has been runnin of co2 for a while. im definately gettin a HPA tank. im gettin a 68/4500. is it worth buying for 200 buckz.?

very much so, probably one of the best upgrades you can buy. The 68/4500 will have enough size to use on even the biggest air hog of a gun. Plus if you take care of it it will pass hydro testing in 5 years so your basically paying 200 for a tank that you can use 10 years from now.

:yeahthat: However, make sure you can get it filled to 4500 psi locally, scuba tanks only can be filled to 3000 psi and if your local field or shop can't fill to 4500 psi you might as well save a little money and get the 3000 psi tank.

thnx for the help. would it hurt teh marker if like i run out of air and i start usin co2.

No it wont hurt it, but make sure you chronograph your marker after you switch because the gases are different and you don't want to be shooting hot or too low.

thnx 4 the help. im prolly gonna get a pmi pure enrgy tank is that a good tank.

PMI tanks dont have the best rep, since there have been reports of leaks on the 45/3000 tank (which i have) and i haven't had any problems on my tank at all so it should be fine. if you dont want to risk it, crossfire makes a good tank too.

Hope that helps you out a bit
