Strengths: * Doesn't Slowly Freeze ur gun
* Small and lightweight (as far as nitro tanks go)
Weaknesses: * Gets only about 400-500 shots with cocker
* Expensive, and I bought cheapest one.
Review: I'd say all in all Nitro tanks are definitely over priced and all around not worth it unless ur using an Angel, Timmy, Shocker etc. But Co2 for Cocker's, since people have been using Co2 on their Cocker's since Autocockers Debut, works just fine.

As far as this tank goes, it is a good nitro tank, if i had the chance to go back in time and not buy this tank, I would either buy a bigger one for more shots like a 68 4500, or 68 3000, or I would not buy a nitro tank at all. I would gladly spend the extra 70 bux in order to get a bigger tank, because only having 400-500 shots just irritates me. I am so conscientious about my tank now, that I look down at the gauge at least 5 or 6 times during the course of the game. The idea of running to bunker someone and getting caught without nitro, all but appeals to me. Don't be a cheap @$$ get a bigger tank, or use Co2.
Conclusion: Do not buy the 47 3000 unless you plan on refilling your tank after every single game. I give the product an 8 rating because the products faults are due to my errors, such as not buying a larger tank. I have my nitro tank and I have my co2 tank and i find myself treating my Co2 tank with more dignity, and my nitro tank on the other hand is held a little more dearly to me than a warm, steamy, pile of................ you get the idea.

Actually, the tank itself isn't very expensive. The bulk of the price is from the regulator that steps the pressure down from 3000/4500 to 850. Regulators are precision instruments, so they're not cheap to make. If you just factor in about $50+ for the cost of the regulator, that's most of the cost of the tank.

And that's why adjustable systems like the Scion and Armageddon are so damned expensive. You're paying like $250 for an adjustable regulator. Ouch.

Oh yea, and you shouldn't be using CO2 with cockers anyways. Bad stuff can happen if the interals freeze. If you would use CO2, anti-siphon and a reg =)

Wait, you are using nitro with an autococker and are only getting 500 shots? I can do at least 650 with my tippmann and thats a high pressure gun.
