I am currenly borrowing a 88ci 3000 carbon fiber melee tank for a tourny this month. It's a major step up from my 50/3000 aluminum tank. It's lighter, go figure. It holds more air, and fits suprisingly compfortable on my gun. The reg's adjustable. If i still had my BT4 Assault w/super RT, i could've cranked the output up to 1000psi and let that baby rip! lolz.
The tank also fills very fast, an added bonus.
This is an outstanding tank. The bigger ones are very cheap because nobody wants a big tank ;)

Light, Consistent, Reliable
I'll let you know when I can find one.
If your going to be a compressed air system then taking a look at this one is a must. I have never had a problem yet the two others I have used have had problems like leaking out the fill nipple. Its light. Very consistent output pressure. What else do you need in a tank. Also these aren't very expensive. I payed about $140 for this. There is no sense in paying a tank with all sorts of fancy stuff on it, all that is unnecessary stuff that can break costing you more money. A tank is there to be consistent not tell you how much time is left in a game.
Great tank, you can't go wrong by buying one. I firmly stand behind this tank it is a great product. So if your looking to upgrade from CO2 to compressed and want a good tank that wont break the bank then this one is for you.
I was looking for a nitro tank to power my M98 Custom (This is before I bought my BKO), when I came across the Air America Me'lee tank.
I had read a lot of good things about the Air America tank, from the consistent flow, to Air America's lifetime warranty. Also the Pro shop which I purchased it from recommended it and it wasn't that expensive (I paid $130 for a 68/3000). The Me'Lee Regulator is preset to 800 PSI.
After a few days, I took it out to the field to try it out. I hooked up my tank and went to the chronograph and found that it was consistent (+/-6 FPS) over the chrono, and suffered no considerable shootdown throughout the day, which made me very happy.
I have not had any major problems with it since I have bought it, so thats another big plus.
Its a steel tank, so its heavier than fiber wrapped tanks, but thats not a big deal to me since I am a big guy and can handle the extra weight.
If you are looking for a good tank at a good price, I would recommend this tank. It is consistent, has good air flow and is backed by Air America 100%%
ANS GX3 Autococker Polished Grey. 12in Lapco Big Shot Stainless Steel Barrel. 14inch PMI Perfect Ceramic Grey Barrel. Kapp Apco Micro Drop w/ Kapp on/off Adapter. PMI steel 68ci 3000psi & Air America steel Mele 68ci 3000psi. 12volt Rev w/xborad.
Its little more consistant than my PMI steel tank. On a Rec Day It will last me 3 10-15min games since I'm not shooting as much paint. Its nice looking. People tell me all the time how its a good tank which it is. Its consistant shoots about 700rds with my cocker. Has a good regulator attached to it. Screws right in to any asa with no problem.
The bad thing that I found out about it was that I used it in a local tourney and I got stuck playing back simply because everyone on my makeshift team was saying I had the most range out of all four of them. So there fore I had to shoot more paint. And I ran out of Air but I stayed in the game. So I had to barrow the owners 68ci 4500psi and everything was so much better. Thats the only down fall I found if you shoot alot of paint or play back and dump a case in one game get a larger tank.
If Your like me that plays more Rec than tourney. Then you should be ok. If you play alot of tourney ball then you might wanna consider a larger size. Over all if you play rec or every once in a while then this tank will do you justice. Back players get a bigger tank unless you dont shoot over 700.
This tank is soooo consistent, i had +/-3 fps with 5 shots over the chrony, i got mine when it just came out so it was a little expensive but u get what u pay for!! it also looks really cool, it actually looks like it has a reg on it, none of that crap like pmi and crossfire.
the only bad thing was i had to "break" it in, it took about 3 fills but it is sooo amazing now.
i hear that they are like 170 now, and i paid 230 for mine, i shot 230 was way worth it, but 170!!! BUY IT NOW

This is a very good quality tank. First off you can't beat the price, I got mine for 189 bux! The reg on this guy is sweet, it is very consistant, you will have no dropoff during rapid fire. I have gotten many compliments on this tank, every time i get it filled, at my local shop the owner always says that it is a very good tank and that he really likes them, and let me tell you this guy knows his stuff!
after my second fill, my low pressure burst disk broke, very annoying!!!! I replaced it and havn't had any problems since!
Very good high quality tank, It is recommended to anyone looking to get into the Nitro market. Could be your first and only tank you ever need!

Very consistant but all N2 just about is.
The tank isn't too big so it's still easy to shoot.
Easy to fill and it has a high enough operating pressure (800PSI) to work with most Spyder etc. w/o any extra parts.
It isn't expensive, i got mine for like 280$CDN which should be like 150-80$US.
(don't email me for where i got it)
Its a little heavy but that's about it.
Preset tank but don't hold that againt it.
A great way to get into the whole N2 thing.
If you can't affort an adjustable tank this is the way to go.
Very nice recharge times! It is so light! I came off a 47 crossfire and the crossfire is about 2x as heavy. I love it I can snap-shoot more easily because it is lighter. I have the 68 cubic inch tank. I got the fiber wrapped for $180 well I think thats the site. I am telling you this tank is nice. When I first opened the box I was in love with it. It is a great price for the product.
This is the best part about this tank. There is no catch, nothing bad at all.
Well this is probably the best screw-in that you can buy made from the air masters themselves at Air America.

No shoot down! I have Swing trigger on my custom built A/C and can get about 9.8 bps.
Chrony the first shot, shoot a string of about 30, last ball was with in about 9 fps.
I bought the 68 firber for $199.99 and for that price u get a great tank!!!!!
No problems with it so far, about 8500 rds thru it.
Great recharge rate, I have the Bulldog 68 adj. reg. and won't even use it, wanna buy it. :)
I 'm going to buy a 114 for the longer games.
Shop the web, and you WILL find a great price!!!
