Review: I bought this tank for $270 CAN (70/45 peanut) with a rhino cover from a friend, it's 1 year old. After having read some of those reviews about it's horrible recharge rate, I was a little worried, but my Timmy shooting perfectly when it maxed my reloader on full auto put my mind at ease. I mean... push the pin down, does the air drop off, as that article suggested it should? No, it works fine.

The tank is very short, and feels like a longer tank with a drop forward, only without the drop forward. Being fat, it makes your gun a little taller, but only by an inch or so. Plus, it looks freakin sexy.

The only drawback is the aluminum regulator. The threads always strip a little bit every time I remove the tank, despite my best efforts. I mean, it's only a tiny bit, but i'm still pulling aluminum out of my ASA and off my reg. If that gets into your solenoid...!!!!!

On the plus side, the aluminum reg is lighter than one made of steel, so I guess it's a tradeoff, although I'll take the extra ounce or so and save myself the $90 bucks for a new solenoid. This is why it gets a 9.
Conclusion: Awesome tanks, the only drawback is the aluminum threads that can wreck your gun if you're not careful.
