Review: When I first purchased this tank i was impressed with the weight and size of it. It was not too bulky and the weight was perfect for my marker set up. I soon became very disappointed in the quality of the Regulator when i was having the tank filled the 1800 burst disk blew keep in mind that this was about the 6th or 7th time i had had it filled. The disk blew at 2000 PSI the first time... I purchased a new burst disk and started to fill the tank again. Again the 1800 disk blew. I took my tank home discouraged. I then attempted to contact ACI to se what the problem was when i called their num i was met with that nice lady that tells me the number is no longer in service. I called my local paintball shop and asked if they had a current number for them,i got it. So i called this number and there was no answer i tried a couple of times still same thing. I then called PMI and was met with a real person rather quickly. He asked me what product i had and what the problem was. I told him that i didn't actually have a product of theirs but he he just chuckled and asked me what the problem was i explained to him and asked him what regulators were interchangeable. The guy helped me out immensely and was very knowledgeable. i ended up buying a 4500 PSI regulator made by PBN2 and installing it into my ACI tank , that fixed the problem and the tank works great now. I was so impressed with the PMI guys willingness to help that i bought one of their tanks an 88/4500 Pure energy.
Conclusion: Overall i would recommend this tank if you wanna take the risk of having a bad regulator but if you don't wanna loose the time, energy, and cash then just pick up something else(PMI, Angel Air, Air America) even if you have to put out a few more bucks.
