3 years
Products Used:
Co2 (no other air tanks)
Marker Setup: Tippmann Custom Pro
14" Lapco Bigshot
Lapco Offset Sight Rail
Tippmann/SO Flat Top Sight Rail (attached to the offset)
BT Sealed Bolt System
68/45 HP
Strengths: Cheap
Works ok. EDIT: Really well.
Easy to remove reg.
Weaknesses: no LP burst disk
Review: It keeps up with a tippy just fine. The one thing I don't like is the fact that there is no LP burst disk. But that's not a major issue.

EDIT: Ok, so, I've had it for over a year now, and I'm not really impressed. Back when I got it, i was playing indoors mostly, where the limit was 250 fps. The tank worked acceptably.

Now that I'm playing outdoors, I've run into trouble. I can't seem to get the marker to fire over 260 fps, and the shootdown is terrible. I, along with others, have tried many solutions and we all believe we have narrowed the problem down to the tank. If i determine it is something else, I'll change the review again. It is now down from 7 to 5, as I think I have a lemon (noone has the same complaint).

EDIT 2: Well, I was wrong (thankfully). After some tinkering with my marker (earlier issues were cause by my macro/valve on the marker), I've got it shooting great with this tank. I plan to keep it as long as I can. Review is up to 8 now. Also because I've grown to appreciate the benefits of the easily removed reg.
Conclusion: Ill give it an 7, would be 9 if they put in the LP burst disk.
Not bad for a blowback, but not great. I think I'm going to switch to a crossfire.


EDIT 2: 8. I'm keeping this tank. It's great, and I highly recommend it if you can still find them. Great value and it works beautifully. It's not as consistent as some others, but it's recharge is great. I intend to put a Palmers direct on my marker to deal with the consistency (+/- 10-15), but that aside the tank is great.

What do you mean recharge rate I put it on my shocker and ramp easily. That thing will keep up with 25 a second no problem
