Well...Its not CO2
CHEAPLY MADE. IVE HAD TONS OF PROBLEMS.
Where to begin...Well first off, just for reference I had the aluminum tank. Second off, I really dont like those people who give good things a bad rating, but this tank just flat out sucks. It worked ok for the first few weeks, and then things started happenening. I had just filled up my tank all the was the other day and set it in my room. I came back a few days later to find it empty and the little regulator gauge cover blown off. I thought no big deal. So then i went up to my local shop and they said I had a leak there and another leak in my fill nipple. We thought it wouldnt be a problem and i would still be able to shoot...WRONG. I have to buy like 60 bucks in crap to fix my piece of junk tank. It wont even shoot at all. My CO2 was more dependable...
I would reccomend any other tank besides this one. Its not worth the hassle. And after you buy it, and fix it a few times, you would have spent enough money that you could of saved to buy a nicer tank.
I give it a 2. Because its not CO2.
2 out of 10

Teflon does not belong in Co2 or HPA tanks, loctite does. That Co2 tank death in California occured because someone put teflon tape to seal the valve in the tank, not loctite. Had loctite been in there, none of this would have happened
A normal co2 tank just has the bottle itself, attached to a pin valve, through which anything can and does flow (CO2 in both liquid and gas forms.) On 99% of markers gas-form CO2 is preferred, so an anti-siphon tube is used.
The tube is installed inside the tank and is bent up at a predetermined angle (it must be matched to whatever ASA you are using) so that when the tank is screwed in all the way the tube is angled up inside the tank. What this does is ensures that the tube will always be up out of the liquid co in the tank and drawing only gas into the marker, which improves consistency and prolongs o-ring life. Installation should only be done by an airsmith (improperly installed AS tubes have killed a few people because the tank valves were not reinstalled correctly.)
Using a remote line will be effective as well for keeping out liquid CO2, but never combine AS and a remote, because it will act as a siphon tube, which is exactly what you don't want-- drawing exclusively liquid into the marker.
Who the heck buys an aluminum HPA tank??? wtf one of the reasons guys buy HPA tanks is because they are fiber rapped and have more volume and a lower weight...dont complain about having a crappy hpa tank when you bought an aluminum bottle. the companies focus more on high end fiber rapped tanks because there is a greater demand for them.
dude i have a fiber wrapped ACI tank and it is horrible!!!!
1. it leaked thru the gauge forcing the gauge lens to pop out...
2. the fill nipple broke so i had to replce that also...
3. then the reg unscrewed from the bottle, that just pissed me off so i had to locktite that.
