Well the problem is it isnt strong enough.
It was recalled due to minimal carbon fiber being used during manufacturing
This tank is a waste of $200 this product is viewed as unsafe by the DOT and by NPPL and every major field/ store in the US. if you have one of these tanks that got recalled its $40 more dollars to get it fixed. and even when its fixed most fields still will not fill it
Dont buy it unless you need a good paper weight...and even then its not the best one ever
Dispute: The amount of layers on the tank has nothing to do with the company itself. They do not make the tank. The tanks are bought by a different company and the regs are added onto them. Several other companies buy tanks from SCI (I believe) who had the problem. Why give the tank a 1 when the problem was outside of the company?
you know, with all the dispute's I'm surprised that there are no mods on to delete something like this. The GCI tanks were recalled because they did not put enough wrapping on the tanks. it is not ignition's fault, or crossfire, or mac dev, or anyone else who used the GCI tanks, it's GCI's fault. so to say the reg is a waste of money isn't true, the bottle is a waste of money. and the tank cannot be "repaired" all tanks marked with 12695 dot numbers are condemed. it is not 40.00 to fix the tank, its 40 to replace the tank with a new one, in whch case the fields will fill it, because the new tank is not a GCI tank.
Also, at the time you put that post, the tanks had been recalled for about a month.

tho as you guys stated it wasnt archons fault for the bad tanks it still shows lil regard for qa and safety on their part. macdev archon and crosman definately deserve any bad press this incident brught them they should have checked and tested a few pieces from that lot before endangering thousands of players

You should really use a spell/grammar checker!
