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.

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

Having an adjustable tank is a life saver. Going from a pirahna to a cocker to a shocker, you need an adjustable, since the shocker works off LP. I have never had any problems with shoot-down and would not see this tank for anything.
This is a great tank if you use any Smart Parts guns. Saves on buying another reg to get your pressure down. So worth the money.

When I finally got the tank working it works great.
When I first purchased the 47ci steel bulldog II tank I gassed it up and aired up my gun. It blew the 1800psi burst disk. So I sent it back to ACI for repair. When I got it back it did the same thing, it blew the 1800psi burst disk. So I called up ACI and they sent me another burst disk to try. It did it again, all this time they were telling me that I must be filling it wrong, but I wasn't. So I called up ACI AGAIN and come to find out they were getting a large amount of customers calling and complaining about their burst disks blowing as well, so they looked at the burst disks and come to find out they had a bad batch of burst disks. So ACI sent me out a new burst disk, and what do you know, It worked.....
Overall once I got the tank working it works good, but I would expect that ACI should have a little better quality control on their products, it would save a lot of people a lot of time and frustration. However, overall I like their product.
Well I have ran this tank with my Impulse and my STO, and it has been pefectly fine. I am not sure what everyone esle is crying about. I have had consistant shooting with no drop or spiking. I had a max flo system and this system, fired both of them in a test, I will admit the max flo is a little better, but I found no real significant difference in the way it shot. So I sold the max flo and kept the bulldog
Nothing that I have experienced so far.
Overall I very nice system, and now that the new bulldog 2's are out I wold suggest picking a tank up. It runs well and is nicely priced.

The Price was originally good, but after having to mail the tank back to ACI for repairs and problems any other tank like the Armagedon would have been cheaper for me.
The reg would continually spike in tourneys. This is something that a tourney player can not havehappen. The reg would also start to screw apart if an eye was not on when removing the tank, and that would cause great harm to any one.
The tanks are not worth the cost. I feel that there are a lot of better tanks out there that may cost a little more, but would be well worth the difference.
Better than CO2, d'uh of course
not too expensive. Paid like $325 Canadian for a 68/3000 preset
I think that the white fibre wrapped bottle looks cool. It just made me get a tank cover though. Good to look at in my house. Bad to look at in the bush if you are the opposing team and you see my white botle.
I run it on my autococker and as opposed to many of the other reviewers I have not experienced much shoot down, or had any leaking. ( In fairness though just got it and used only one fill. But that was mostly speedball, and I was really wailing away and didnt notice any drop off.) The recharge rate must be better for the preset as opposed to the adjustable.
Get a tank cover though cause the white fibre wrap sticks out. I suggest the RASE it is nice
A good moderately priced air system. I can't justify spending like $600 or $800 on a 'good' air system (Canadian prices). I say 'good' cause that is a relative thing. I believe that a lot of people don't have a clue as to what is good or not they just want a status symbol. You know look at me I have a an Angel Air system (which by the way is like $1000 Canadian) etc...
I don't have too much practical experience with other bottles, just played with a Raptor preset before and a Crossfire as well. This product is just as good if not better. Hey what can I say it holds air and it lets out when i need it to
I'm perfectly happy with it.
With the money I saved I actually get to go and play paintball and buy a few upgrades for my cocker. Can't go wrong with that
The only thing good about this tank is the compact regulator design, pretty white bottle, and the fact that the regulator was replaced free of chrage when this P.O.S. broke down.
This is probably one of the worst purchases I've made since I began playing paintball 5 years ago. (ACI Bulldog 68ci/3000psi adjustable tank cost me $240.00 last yr.) The adjustable regulator was defective, it has extremely slow recharge rates, and the regulator seat went and blew the burst disk and my DYE microguage out. This all happened within after a month of buying it. I called ACI and they referred me to the Hose Shop who services the regulators. They replaced the entire regulator free of charge, but to this day (a year later) I still have problems with the regulator seat going bad on frequent occasions. It has happened 3 times since, and I've blown 2 guages and 3 burst disks. The design of this regulator is inferior, the reg. seat is too easily contaminated, and I've even taken the precaution of using an AKA guardian fill filter with every fill. I've had everything done in terms of rebuilding and relacing internals to the 2 regulators the bottle has seen possible, and they keep crapping out. Luckily, it's working at the moment because I just had a new seat put in, but in no way possible is this thing high flowing enough for a high-end marker like my RT or and an Angel......major shoot-down. Keep in mind this is the adjustable reg. not preset version. I basically use this on my Spyder now, and will probably upgrade to a 45/45 AA armageddon when I get the money.
Stay away from these tanks, I'm not the only one who has had bad experiences with them. They are mass produced regulators shared by several different companies and the quality assurance is not there. I have not used the presets, I heard they were decent. For the money I should have just stepped up a bit and bought the AGD Flatline or a Conquest.
