Default Help with HP tank please

I use a '05 Spyder Pilot ACS, and I'm getting an eggy 3. Now the problem is, my CO2 tank has been acting weird. So I decided to look into a HP tank. I have decided on the Crossfire, because it is cheap and reliable. But, do I get a high or low pressure tank? Also, I'm getting a clamping feedneck. Do I get holes or no holes?

you get no holes.
and you want a high pressure tank
Pure Energy sells some cheap ones, but there made out of aluminum, not carbonfiber. you may want to check the B/S/T section, used ones are good too, and cheaper

Yes...get the High Pressure or High Output tanks...and remember the "ci standard"...

3000psi=~10 shots per ci (47/3000=~470 shots per fill)
4500psi=~15 shots per ci (68/4500=~1020 shots per fill)

These are rough estimates and may vary slightly according to your particular marker.

Because that's what a stock Spyder needs.

Well, you can always get a Low Pressure tank, get it filled, install it and get pissed because it's not working for you and try to blame it on the marker when it's not the case (and we will remind you of that later on)...then go through the trouble of trying to return it, trade it or sell it...which will take forever and you may end up losing money on the deal...and what you should have done was listen to us in the first place...[/sarcasm]

Stock Spyders need HP tanks...end of story.
