Review: Ok I got my tank today and opened it out of the package and realized right away that this was probably one of the lightest tanks ive ever held. My Friend has an Air America 45/4500 and mine was still lighter than his even though mine was a 70/4500. I went to get it filled at my local shop and right away the guy (Huge paintball noob. I was more qualified then he was to work there.) said i was missing a burst disk. I said look buddy dye made it inside the tank so its better now. He went in the back filled it up no problems. DO NOT PANICK IF IT LOOKS LIKE A PIN IS MISSING THATS HOW IT IS!

Heres where the problems started. I gassed up my ION too see if it would be ok. It as a pretty much stock ION. I gassed it up and it cocks back. So far so Good. Then I start shooting mad fast and next thing i know it stops shooting. Im pretty sure the reg might've blown out or the solenoid is clogged. Not sure its still in the shop (update will come). Heres what i have to say. Listen to Dye's Warning. Buy a good in line Reg . You dont hafta buy a Hyper 2 ike Dye says. They are just advertising. I say get a Cp Reg.
Conclusion: Great tank. Overall despite my problems (prolly just bad luck) I give it a 9. If your are looking for a very small and light tank get this tank. Also watch out for the grip reg. Get a new one prolly. Unless you already have a good one. Empire regs are good, C[P Regs are beast, Hyper 2 regs are good(little pricy). Only real problem is the reg which isnt the tanks fault.
9 out of 10
