Review: I've got the 91/4500. The Dye rhino cover for an 88 fits it perfect. Two things conserned me when I got my tank. After following ACI's instructions, I had my tank filled the day before playing and maybee about twelve hours had past and I woke up to this loud hissing. Not good. Well I took it back to the shop next morning and they changed out the fill nipple o-ring that was in a million pieces and tried to refill it. After about 1200 psi I checked it and same thing happened again! Well I noticed the fill nipple was not like any I've seen before. There was a little Snap ring keeping the valve from from coming out. Neat idea, but bad design. I switched it out with the more common type (no snap ring). Filled it up again, and no problems, yet. I put it on my marker and dry fired a few shoots, everything is good. I start to unscrew and the tech starts going ape crazy telling me to stop. Well I couldn't tell that I was unscrewing the bottle from the reg. I got about half way before I stoped. Good thing the tech saw, I didn' want to hit anyones mom in the head with it. I didn't see any signs of any type of thread lock. The tech put some on after bleeding the whole tank again, and now everything works fine. ACI techs didn't try to help me out either. Told me to buy a new one and the regs come seperate from the bottles from the factory and that ther should be enough pressure to hold the bottle to the reg. Obviously not. If it weren't for those problems I had with the product and the unhelpful techs, I would rate this a 10.
Conclusion: I do recomend this product becasue it works good and is priced right. The reg is rebuildable so you don't have to buy a whole new reg if it messes up. I do think the QC needs to pay a little more attention, but that's at a manufacturing level. When you get one, check for lock tight and make sure your fill nipple is good!
