Bulldog regulators are the only regulators on the market that have a downstream burst disk for extra player safety. The Bulldog preset and the adjustable regulators are available with 3000-psi 47ci. aluminum tanks or fiber-wrapped tanks in 68ci. or 110ci.
The ACI Bulldog Air System is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I am using this tank on a pmi pirahna g2 w/ gas thru grip, shocktech drop forward, dye stickies, tumb adjustable velocity screw, aci zero gravity barrel and ported and polished insides with upgraded venturi bolt
Well just to clear up things here I am using the ACI bulldog 2, i think this is a review for the aci bulldog one but I cant find a review thread for it so you guys are going to hear about it. The difference between the bulldog 1 and 2 is that the bd1 had another manufacture make the regs for the tank, and they werent all that great so aci makes there own for the bd2. Well anyways the good about the bd 2 is that the bd2 is equiped with the qd style fill fitting this means i can fill the tank up while its on or off my gun. Another good thing is that is an aci product, they have never let me down with there products. Another grad ol thing that I absolutely need to stress about this tank is that the reg is built to last on these puppys and they are extremly relaiable and the presetings always keep oup with fast rates of fires.
The only bad thing to me about the bd2 is the tank color is white, it doesent matter that much anyways after i put my dye tank cover on the thing but i can still see a tad bit of white, this is a bad item to me because black is my favorite color and my marker is completely black so dont base my disliknings of the tank if you decide not to buy it. Also you can see white from a far if your playing in the woods, but you shouldent just be playing with the tank all by its self, PLEASE if you use compressed air or nitrogen and if your tank is fiber wrapped use a tank cover.
This tank is awesome, It is built well, its an aci product and the tank is great for both my semi and my pump markers, I would recodmend this product to anyone switching over from co2. The tnk is VERY user friendly and it also comes with a thread protector right out of the box. Also the presetings on the tank stay the same when you fire maning you wont bounce around in psis when firing, IE fire once 80 psi fire again 850 fire again 700psi, that wont happen with this tank, youll be shooting at 800 or 850 all the time. So from my use of this tank i give it a 10 because shes a beuty and a beast all in one package
i've used the Pmi brand tanks, an i can tell u that they are perfectly fine. But the ACI bulldog is another company, and their tank is absolutle the same, as the PMI. Personnally i think it's better
2k1 vert cocker, I custom made it myself, Every thing u need for a cocker to make it shoot great.

Excellent, the guy above that gave it a one must of had someone fill it up wrong, or something cuz i live in miami where the heat is somtimes extreme, no spikes too often but some here an there. The PMI spikes way more often, (spikes are sudden changes in presure from the tank). My autococker uses this tank and i have never had a problem with it
no, i really can't think of anything wong with this tank, but if you wanna get a better tank go for A.I.R or Max-Flo
Good tank, god price, good reliability, Get it if you consider it.
I bought this tank to use on my Timmy, and it worked remarkably well for a tank that was relatively old. Decent recharge (kept up with Timmy!) and decently consistent for a cheaper reg. I also like the fact that it's adjustable and screw-in. Oh, and huge PE gauges look sweet.
All these problems I've heard of with burst disks malfunctioning just never seemed to happen with mine, though it did spring a small leak from the adjustmnt screw later on in life.
The major downside is the fact that it only came in 3000 psi bottles, which is not the preferred pressure due to less shots per fill...but it will suffice for most players, especially withy more efficient markers.
Despite its quirks and slight flaws, I think it's a great tank if you can find one used floating around for cheap.

First of all let me say this, the time has come for a reliable review to be written on this product first of all, The most important thing to realise is that there are now two types of bulldog regs. There is the original bulldog regulator which is just black aluminum. Then ACI made the new bulldog two reg which has a red or blue back piece( red for 800psi output and blue for 400psi output) and a chrome plated brass front piece. The original bulldogs are probably what most of the people on this site purchased. they were not very good to say the least!
Then there is the bulldog 2 which has manny new features. It has an amazing flow rate and teh reg consistency is increadible. I can shoot about 10 bps on my mag and I hit the same spot every time. no drop off at all!! Also it has a remoovable flange which allows you to replace worn out valve parts. Also the colour of the tank is increadible. for the price this tank is deffinatly the best.
About the adjustable reg; it preforms better than the preset original but does not have the consistency of the bulldog 2. ALSO THE BULLDOG 2 COMES IN A 4500PSI VERSION!!!
The only thing that I can think of is that it is not very good on orings. actually it has trouble with the expensive urithane orings but works fine with the cheap black ones. That should almost go into the good section.
If you are going to buy this tank you must make sure that it is the bulldog 2 reg remember that it is the one that has a red back and a chrome front section.
the only reason it gets a 9 is that no product should get a 10 unless there is absolutly nothing wrong with it and this is almost phsycally impossible
I've only had good things with this tank. No leaks or shootdown even considering that I shoot over 7 balls a second on my lcd bushy. My lcd bushy is all stock except of a dye boomstick, so when I crono'd my bush I was shooting 263,264,265,264,265,264,265,265 in that order. NO LIE. OH yeah and also I was runnin' my gun at 275 and it was runnin' like a dream. And also I think the white carbon fiber looks very very sexy with lok soks.
A cheap price for a cheaply built dual regulated tank. I guess I got what I payed for...
Where should I begin!!! I had the same problem of the tank leaking gas and a shoot down problem. The tank was evidently a defective piece of junk from the start, it blew a burst disc the third time they gases it up at the field. Later that week, I contacted aci who put me in touch with "The Hose Shop"(they manufacture the tank, reg, and parts) and just like one of the previous reviewers, I had to pay for an overhaul kit or to it to be overhauled..., the warranty wasn't worth the paper its printed on. I overhauled the tank with the kit I purchased, and gases it up again. It proceed to blow another disc, not to mention pressure screw started backing out by itself. I figured that I must have done something wrong. But it was later checked out by an air tech at the field who had told me the whole regulator assembly was dangerously defective, and would have to be sent back to the ACI for a complete new one... I spent enought money on the overhaul kit, so its trash bound.
I don't know how ACI tests their products or what their standards are...I could see future lawsuits when a tank blows-up and somebody gets hurt.
I thought maybe it was just bad luck on my part, which could be, but from what I've seen from other reviews...this probably isn't the case...the bad seems to out way the good....I'll give it a 2, because there are evidently a good ones out there, but far and few...in my eyes, spend the extra money and purchase a reliable tank...

The price is nice and that is about it. It looks okay and the price is right that's it, nothing else.
The first time I screwed it on my gun the "downstream" burstdisk didn't work and the tank blew up, not literally but all of the air shot out with considerable force. I took the tank back to my local paintball shop P&P, and the guy said the tank pin was too long. He screwed on another one and it did the same thing as the first one. Needless to say I was less than happy. I was informed that the only reason they sold the tanks was because they were cheap.
They are garbage and they are probabally the worst tank out in my opinion.
Is it worth risking your safety over a few extra bucks?
As far as I am concerned everything ACI makes is garbage, especially their N2 tanks. Bottomline don't buy one go with PMI or Nitro Duck.

It is a great tank when it coms to consistency and flow. The removeable flange is GREAT just incase.
The people at ACI have some serious problems with their lower pressure burst disks. The 3rd or 4th time I filled up the tank the 2.8k burst disk blew on a 2500 fill station... explain that ACI. So thinking this was a serious defect I went back to the store where I purchased it.I Had their Airsmith replace it with a non-ACI disk and haven't had a problem since. Since reading the reviews I see that ACI has a serious problem with burst disks. But h#!! I'd rather it blow prematurely than not blow when the pressure gets to high and seriously injure me.
Besides the burst disk these tank are great and the are the same legnth as some 45/45's (I compared to my friends.). So if I had to do it all over I would still buy this tank.
