Review: This is a very nice tank. When i got it, i thought it was a 45/45. It's soo tiny, very light too.

The reg is a PMI knockoff, recharges at about 30 times a second, not bad. Goes great with my vlocity and cyborg.

I got this tank for $160 used with a NXE cover. The cover fits very well. Almost all other 68ci covers are going to be loose on it.

Tanks looks sexy too, but who doesn't use a cover?

Feel free to ask any questions, i will reply quickly.
Conclusion: Any one who's looking for a nice light and small tank, DXS is the way to go!
10 out of 10

All that is, is the seal in the fill nipple. It's perfectly normal and won't rattle when there is pressure in it.

The DXS is lighter and about and inche shorter. I went from a Crossfire 68/30, and i love my DXS so much more. I would definitely suggest it over the Crossfire 68/45.

The threads are perfect. They screw in very, very smooth. I don't know any one that uses oil on their threads.

You should never put oil on threads. Petroleum based oils put under pressure have a lot higher risk of catching on fire. Its just a pointless risk to take. It most likely wouldnt ever happen to you, but its not worth the risk.

hey is your tank high or low pressure output?

i heard about a guy at my local field that put loads of lube and oil on the inside of his tank awfew years ago because he thought it would fill quicker but it was one of them flamable ones and when he filled it up the whole tank exploded in his face so he left his gun and hopper on the field and ran away and never played paintball again.

dont ask me if its true becase i only heard about it from a guy that worked there so i did not see it.

that would suck but why wouldn't you go to the hospital???

rabidpoonhole Tuesday, July 10th, 2007 | 6:47 pm PST
that would make me relatively unhappy.

you should never put any lubricant at all on the ASA of your nitrogen system it becomes highly flammable
