Review: I received this item for christmas and was quite happy when I got it. The next day I took it out for testing. I used some Draxxus Rec-Sport paint. I first tried it our with my nine ounce. Not very good, I had a feeling the tank was nearly empty after a just a little play. I tried with my 20 ounce co2 tank and the results seemed to be about the same. Then when I put on the Crossfire tank, I was amazed at how little Air leakage there was. Just an extreamly quick "whisp" and it was in. I shot an entire hopper and every ball went strait, flat, and went out of site. (My gun did have a flatline barrel) I was very impressed. The next day we had bunch of small four man games in my back yard. We used teams of two and I saw a great deal of wonderful preformance. At the end of the day the tank was almost empty, but it kept shooting strait until it's very last shot.
Conclusion: Deffinetaly a great thing to buy for your first step up to nitrogen. It is deffinetaly a good price for what you get. It gets a ten out of ten for it's wonderful performance.
10 out of 10

What is the preset outpurt pressure of this gun.

The only reason you think this is heavy is because you came from running CO2 which is really light. There are a bunch of tanks heavier than this one.

The stubby tank is 70ci 4500psi

The reason your C02 tanks didn't last very long was because you were shooting them in winter. C02 just can't stand the cold because it's pressure is dependant on the temparture.

Hey whats the different from a 47ci 3000 tank than a 68ci 3000 stubby tank

kjpmkjp Friday, July 22nd, 2005 | 10:33 am PST
The size is the difference. A stubby looks....well stubby. Its shorter and will hold more air than the 47 (hence 68civs47ci). a 47ci will most likely remind you of a 20oz CO2 tank...but a bit bigger and has a reg.

i believe stubbys are 4500psi but i may be wrong.

Blue tanks have a fixed output pressure of 450 psi for low pressure guns (like my autococker) Red tanks have a fixed output pressure of 850 psi for high pressure guns that run co2 (spyders tippmanns etc)

would an omen 2.0 run on high or low pressure

shot-on-sight Tuesday, September 6th, 2005 | 1:16 pm PST
The omen 2.0 is a closed bolt low pressure gun so get a blue tank if you go crossfire (the best choice) or any low pressure fixed output comp air tank would be fine, but low pressure definatley.

Does an X-5 autococker need high or low pressure?

shot-on-sight Sunday, September 11th, 2005 | 8:49 am PST
You meen a GX-5 ? cocker or what ? specify the manifactuere and i can give you more detailed info. If it is a cocker though, then it will most liley run low pressure, all autocockers run low pressure, so get a low pressure output tank for this one.

would an LP Tank from crossfire work with an ION?

shot-on-sight Sunday, February 12th, 2006 | 5:50 am PST
No you need a hgh pressure tank to use ions.

ions run on 185 psi

What are you talking about saying it's heavy!?! I have one and its light as anything.

blazer_NS Tuesday, June 6th, 2006 | 1:08 pm PST
If you guys dont know what your output psi is on your markers, you should just stick with co2......

W.K.S. Saturday, July 8th, 2006 | 8:03 pm PST
68/300 is not a stubby size tank, it's the same size as a 68/45000, which is longer than a 45/4500 tank, and (if you read the product description) it says that the stubbs tanks are shorter than a 45/4500 tank.

Also this is not the place for an off-topic thread. If you have nothing to say about this man's review, then do not post comments here.
