Products Used:
This is my first HPA tank
Marker Setup: - Spyder Aggressor, it's cheap and old but it works everytime
- everything is stock, hopefully getting a new marker this year
Strengths: - Price... when I bought mine.
- Small and light
- Recharge rate
- Consistant on my Spyder
Weaknesses: - The pressure falls after refilling.
- Not very consistent on my friends Tippman.
Review: I am hoping to buy a nicer gun in the near future, and have read about how mucher better HPA works w/ newer guns. I was looking to buy a cheap tank to use w/ my spyder until I can afford a gun I like. I was looking at the WGP, Pure Energy, and Crossfire Steel tanks until I came across Guerrilla Air. They had a Manufacturer Direct Sale on their Regs and fiber tanks for $145.00. I bought my Ambush w/ 68/4500 tank the day the sale was ending. I'm glad I did not wait because the next day the prices had jumped up, as you may have read in the other reviews.
I am pretty happy with my purcase. Although it was more than I had planned on spending, I think I got a good deal.
As I said above, when I get the tank filled, the gauge reads just below 4500 but after 5 minutes or so, it works its way down to just below 4000 and stays put. I'm new to these tanks and do not know if this is common, or if I should be concerned.
Either way, I like having this tank over my CO2s. When I chrono the shots are very consistent, + - 3 FPS on my spyder. Its heavier and bulkier than my old 12oz CO2 but the upside more than compensates.
I did notice that when I chrono my friends Tippman RT 98 w/ my tank that the FPS was all over the place. I guess that it is something with the gun, because the response trigger seems to function better w/ my tank over his Pure Energy.
Conclusion: I like my air setup at this point, and feel confident that it will last a while. I let my brother borrow it for a game, now he is looking for one of his own. The reg seems tiny compared to my friends Pure Energy and I think it shoots better to. I like the fact that the Manufacturer included instructions on how to remove the reg, I read that crossfire requires you to send it to them.
I most likely would not have made this purchase if Guerrilla had it's current pricing at the time. I'm not saying that it is not worth it, I'm just poor.

I'm Kinda laughing at where you said "pressure falls after re-filling", all air tanks pressures fall when you use them...lol...I think you meant it loses pressure or leaks when you don't use it for a while. Remember, you can service the reg, doing this will usually get rid of any leaks, just remember to DEPRESSURIZE before servicing (clean and re-lube) your reg.

Hope this helps

ya, all fills will lose 2-400 psi. Compressed air since its such high pressure, it heats up. Which the when i cools down the pressure drops... thats completely normal. As for as being consistant on a tippmann, its a tippmann for chripes sake.

Your tank is fine, it was probably just his Tippmann. You must remember, Tippy's have no inline reg on stock models.

Dispute:
Two fallacies:

1. He states that the tank loses pressure after a fill. This is due NOT to a the maker of the reg or the tank - but due to physics on tank fills.

2. He states inconsitency on a a friend's 98c - this is most likely due to the actual marker not the tank (especially if his marker is consistant with the same tank on)
