The new Bulldog 3 is built to increase your flow rate (especially on Angels, Bushmasters, Shockers, Impulses, Autocockers and other low pressure markers) to eliminate drop-off and reach your target before your opponent reaches you. This top quality systems is available in a variety of sizes to match your playing style. The new Bulldog 3 Systems are similar to the old Bulldog 2 systems shown below, except that the regulator on the tank is now all polished. Output pressure is fixed at 800 psi. These air systems are made with pride by ACI Sports right here in the USA. Take some American made quality with you the next time you hit the playing field!
The ACI Bulldog III Air System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
ummmmm...well nothing its my first compressed air tank
48-3000 N2 tank
Revolution w/ x-board so to be egg with y/board
Cheap if u buy steel
great for beginners
regulator is pretty good
better tanks out there
I bought mine from ebay new for a little over $80 because i bought a cocker and i was not liking running CO2 thru my new gun so i looked around and found the bulldog steel and bought it. it's a 5 year hydro and new so i went down to my paintball field and bought full day air and filled it up no leak thats good. my friend who works there suggested i get a nipple cover since dirt can get in there and cause it to leak so i bought one it only got about maybe 700-800 shot a full fill but that was fine with me since i only shoot 300 a game and u play 2 games then get time to get paint and air so it has work out fine with me and i still have today and still use it and its been great.
I give it an 8 out 10 since there are better tanks

I have had this air tank for about two years or more.About a year ago I started having problems with the regulator and i had two send it in for repairs.It cost me 50$s to get it fixed.The regulators suck on this air tank, so i decided to get the new micro Max-Flo and stop messing with that sorry reg.Besides the reg the tank it self is all right.

ACI Bulldog 3 68ci/3000psi N2 Tank
Well...when i was reading other reviews about this nitro tank (i got it for free), i thought i was gonna have a bunch of problems. when i first aired it up i had leaks...but that was from gun problems....not the tank. it stay consistant as N2 should. basically...it does what is supposed to do.
Gets the job done. want N2, it doesnt hurt to pick up one of these.
Joy Division Angel
45/45 Bulldog Tank
Holds alot of air
Gauge is a little hard to read, but thats no big problem
Well, I have an Angel and my first thought was well, since I'll be shooting alot of paint and need alot of air, this thing might not be that good. So I screwed it in and shot about 3 hoppers full (200 round Vlocity) and looked at the gauge and saw that only about 750-1000 was gone, and thats really good. I know the Angel had alot to do with it, but this tank holds alot of air.
Its a really good tank for the money, but I'm sure there is better tanks out there too

Uhh, not really any.
Ok, i bough this tank used for 80$ and it has about 2 yrs til rehydro. I have never had any problems with it. No leaks, good reg recharge, everything is fine. I can't really think of anything to say about the tank. It's nice. No fiber strands have come unraveleld. reg has never come flying off(out of the 2 i have used).

Beats my old 47/3000
None so far
For awhile all I had was a small 47/3000 steel tank and I REALLY needed a larger one. So when I was able to get the ACI tank off ebay for around $100 I was thrilled. I have a 68/4500 that is carbon fiber and love it.
I have heard about poor quality when it comes to ACI and I have yet to find a problem. No spikes with the reg, no leaking from the nipple or gauge. It's been filled numerous times at the field and never had any problems. Everything is working fine.
However if anything does go wrong I'll let ya know.
I would say go on and get it. I have had no problems with it (nor has my bro. who has one). But that isn't to say that there are some lemons out there.
C02 and fiberwrapped tanks. Fiberwrapped are lighter, but I dont trust them as much to be reliable as the all metal tanks are because they have to be hydrotested sooner. And they are more fragile. C02 is pretty inconsistent, but cheap and plentyful in fields.

Light, cheap and more consistent than C02.
Not much air in a 47/3000 tank. Only about 500 shots in most guns.
Well I have read most of the reviews when I got this tank and was pretty worried by what people were saying. I was especially worried that I may have ordered a bomb for me and my guns. But that was about six months ago and I have used the tank many weekends, and i am happy to say that I have not had any of the problems the others have experienced. About the only problem I have had with my Bulldog III is that the guage is slightly off. It always shows the tank to be a little bit fuller than what it is. But I have noticed this problem to be less and I wonder if all it really needed was some breaking in period or something. I think I have a theory as to why the others have had a bad product. It could be that many of the first batch of tanks had bad quality control. And that the latest ones seem to be okay. I use this on my Ion rather than on my Tippmann most of the time however. Even though my Tippmann is listed as my marker set up, my Ion is what uses my Bulldog III tank. I would suggest to guard this and any other tank with protection. Air tanks can be dangerous if not taken care of properly. Even if it is not a fiberwrapped tank, buy a tank cover for it. I would suggest a Dye Rino because it has a lot of padding. Get a fill nipple cover to prevent dirt from getting into the regulator, and a cap to protect your threads. If you cant afford the thread and nipple protectors than use the poor man solution and wrap it with some masking tape instead.
I actually do recommend this product as an inexpensive air system for those who are on a budget. However, I do caution to make sure that you buy a good one and not one of the first ones to avoid the "bad batch" just in case. Because of the low amount of air it holds and the gauge problems, it will get a good rating from me, but not a perfect 10.

Tank weight (light)
Poor customer service
When I first purchased this tank i was impressed with the weight and size of it. It was not too bulky and the weight was perfect for my marker set up. I soon became very disappointed in the quality of the Regulator when i was having the tank filled the 1800 burst disk blew keep in mind that this was about the 6th or 7th time i had had it filled. The disk blew at 2000 PSI the first time... I purchased a new burst disk and started to fill the tank again. Again the 1800 disk blew. I took my tank home discouraged. I then attempted to contact ACI to se what the problem was when i called their num i was met with that nice lady that tells me the number is no longer in service. I called my local paintball shop and asked if they had a current number for them,i got it. So i called this number and there was no answer i tried a couple of times still same thing. I then called PMI and was met with a real person rather quickly. He asked me what product i had and what the problem was. I told him that i didn't actually have a product of theirs but he he just chuckled and asked me what the problem was i explained to him and asked him what regulators were interchangeable. The guy helped me out immensely and was very knowledgeable. i ended up buying a 4500 PSI regulator made by PBN2 and installing it into my ACI tank , that fixed the problem and the tank works great now. I was so impressed with the PMI guys willingness to help that i bought one of their tanks an 88/4500 Pure energy.
Overall i would recommend this tank if you wanna take the risk of having a bad regulator but if you don't wanna loose the time, energy, and cash then just pick up something else(PMI, Angel Air, Air America) even if you have to put out a few more bucks.
5 out of 10

Smart Parts Ion, Custom Products single Blade trigger, Q lock Feeder, Pmi Falme Drop Foward soon gonna get Smart Parts Freak
Just like any other No2 Tank
Leaks small amounts
This tank leaks air i went bed and the nextmorning more then 2000 psi leaked out of the tank. Once you get the tanked fised from leaking it is a good tank. I dont really recomend this gun if you dont know how to fix leaks, i recomend the air america tank that is sweet tank
This tank is good after when you fix that problem but i recomend the Air America Tanks
PMI Pure Energy 68ci 3k : PE tank is overall a higher quality tank.

Good customer service behind it(see review) Has a good recharge rate.
The quality of the regulator is not all that great.
Overall this tank has been good to me, it has a fast recharge rate and an ok consistency. The customer service that ACI gives for this tank is great, mine had a leak that I could not fix so I called there tech support and they told me to send it in. When I got it back they had installed a new reg on the tank and it has worked flawlessly ever since then.
Overall it's a good tank for the money, you get what you pay for.
