a 20oz tank is on average just 80 more shots than a 68ci 4500psi tank or on average it is exactly the same as a 110ci 3000psi tank, heres a link to otters page if you need to know any more

as for the prices, i dont know about a 68ci but i got my 88ci for $120

carbon fiber 68/3000's will run you ~$120 and up, 68/4500's ~$140 and up ( however if your field doesn't have the capability to fill to 4500 its a waste of money IMO), steel tanks start around $50 and go up from there. The cost for a carbon fiber tank is worth it when it comes to the difference in weight.

Im getting a 88/4500 from a friend for $50.......is that a good deal?

Also, what is the output pressure on a HPA tank, is it whatever they fill it too?? I have a Palmer Stablizer and I think the input max pressure is 1,000psi, what do I do?? Do I need a bottom line reg. for the tank to bring it down to about 800 and then the reg on my gun will do the rest down to 275psi??
