Products Used:
PMI 68ci 3000, Centerflag 88ci 4500
Marker Setup: System X Vengeance pro 2.0 AutoCocker w/ Empire Reloader
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: PMI has poor quality control
Review: I used this tank once. For the day I was playing, it worked great. After I was done playing, I got a fill for the road, then went home. I screwed the tank into my Autococker and the tank began to purge all it's air. The air came out of a little hole at the top above the burst disk. This problem was due to a blown piston on the regulator. I've heard of PMI's mixed customer service, good fast replies and the slow-we're trying to find the item you sent to us for repair. If someone gave me money to buy another PMI tank, I wouldn't, I'd go for a Centerflag instead.
Conclusion: Air tanks shouldn't stop working after one day of use. This is a serious quality control issue that needs to be addressed by PMI

I think your problems comments are fair. But I would not give it a one. Maybe you got a faulty one. Ive seen 3 PMI tanks mess up. But in my shop I have seen 5 Javas and 4center flag HPAs break.

Im kinda new and wanta ditch the co2 and thought in the long run HPA would be cheapoer and better. but from what i'm reading on most of the reviews on this and other taks is that they break constantly and have to be sent in for repair. Is this what happens with most HPA tanks? Or is common for them to break a lot?

ur a spaz, calm down and wait to get it fixed. saying they have poor quality control is one of the most bias comments EVER. You only had one tank. U spaz over a small problem. Should dispute this cr@p review

the reason your air flow is so poor is because of your gun. i have a pmi tank, 68/4500 and i use a 05 speed. when i go to the crono i am never of by more then 1 in any direction it is ALWAYS from 279-281

completely biased review and unfair to a very good company.

...if its above the burst disk then you probobly overfilled it

i think the tank bit him so he's in a fight with it.
you guys should talk about it and resolve it.

What probily happened is the lp part of your tank blew.. Same thing happened to mine in my opinion this review is right on for some years of the pmi production.

Hey man I had the same problem...A burst disk biggy man has nothing to do with the piston

my pops tank had the same problem. The problem with his was that it was out of hydro by 2 years. Now that part is the steel bonnet lock screws. so y don't u call up pmi and ask for them to fix it( because if you read that little pamphlet it came with it says you have a 1 year warranty)

He said that it was the little pin above the burst disk

You Proboly just got a lemon...

mrkt0 Wednesday, March 28th, 2007 | 6:33 pm PST
Dude, all you have to do is push the pin ina and poof! Its all good. I had this happen to me with a crossfire 68/45 tank and thats all it needed was to push the center pin in.

Matt2010 Monday, April 30th, 2007 | 2:53 pm PST
Dude sry it had to happen to u, from wat i've seen the pmi tank is good and doesnt have many problems, you just got one of the problem tanks not all are like that, it doesnt deserve a one

eerrbb256 Monday, January 7th, 2008 | 12:22 pm PST
dude you suck, you probably have a lemon tank that was screwed from the factory, pmi doesn't deserve a 1

jmccain445 Friday, December 25th, 2009 | 1:34 pm PST
You probably just filled it up too much, broke an o ring, or just got a bad tank. Just return it or take it to a paintball shop that will do minor repairs for free, but the company doesn't deserve a 1. If you had a bad experience, give it something like a 5-7, that at least is reasonable.
