Well, if you need a larger tank, then neither of those will get very many shots... The 72/3000 will give about 700 shots and the 48/3000 will give you about 500 shots.

I suggest a 68/4500 tank... They will give about 1000-1200 shots, depending on the type of marker being used.. Some good brands are Nitro Duck, Crossfire and PMI...

Yup, it just wouldn't be filled all the way. But it'd be great if you ever had to go anywhere else that COULD fill it that much...

However, if you're trying to save money, I'd go with a 3000 psi tank since your field only fills that high anyways. You could always go for a new tank later on when you had more money saved up.

yeah you can fill it .. but then it'd be a 68/3k tank ... just get the 72/3k tank in that case ... but !!! buy it from durrell ... great customer service

So where do you guys fill your HPA? I have really only found 1 place around here that says they do it (a paintball shop imagine that ) but my stupid butt forgot to ask how high they can fill (cause I want to buy a 4500 psi tank)

for not being close to a place that fills, scuba tanks work well.

i opted for a scuba shop over the PB Shop since they fill with the same type of compressor and psi.
