Period of
Product Use:
1 year3 of 13 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
My First Nitro Tank
Marker Setup: Red anodized, 1/2 milled AKA Viking #714
Dead-On Drop Forward
Black Macro-Line Kit
Strengths: Very Heavy Duty Tank
Weaknesses: Weaknesses include regs that don't do what they say they do
Review: This tank 3000 psi 47 ci, Claims to be 850 psi fixed output--not
After being sent back to crossfire and a new reg put on, still no 850 psi.
Even though it puts out more than enough pressure (about 785-795psi), I still wanted 850 psi. All tests were performed buy a local certified airsmith so it was the reg and not operator error. I did allow for several thousand shots for a break-in period.
Conclusion: I can't say that I'll spend my own money on other Crossfire products but as for their customer service, their are super fast with attempted repairs
6 out of 10

Lil picky man? Give em a break, most guns dont need 850.

I am assuming that you are running a AKA sidewinder on that Viking. AKA does not recommend above 800 psi for a sidewinder. The output pressure of 785 should actually be a bit better. Sending it back to get it up to 850 may just hurt your consistency.

It wouldn't hurt his consistency at all. And 800 is definitely all you need but 850 is the max for a sidewinder. Realistically, you could probably go even higher but it isn't recommended. And if you go on Crossfires site they advertise a 450 and an 800. Unless they only changed it recently it does exactly what it says. Well.....almost (795 in this case).

You see, there's a simple reason why he did that. The world today uses a type of bartering that's called a money system. You trade money for a product. Effectively, this money does nothing but make you feel better about yourself. When a person usues this money, they no longer have it, which means they have to wait and work to gain more of this money. High-end paintball guns will not use CO2...Let's say you buy the gun, hoping to play in a tournament in a few days. Spending $200 on a tank is not the cheap, quick answer to a person's money problem. So they buy a cheaper tank, in hope that they will gain enough money to buy the more high-end tanks later on.
