It's a cheap and an easy way to get nitro. I have a steel tank so scratches are not a concern.
The regulator was unsrewing when I would install it on my marker. This was my fault as I was overtightening the tank into the asa adapter. Remeber that the regulator has LEFT HAND THREADS and is designed that way to keep it from unscrewing when you take the tank OFF your marker, not when you install it. I tightened it and have not had a single other problem.
I bought the 47c.i. tank for $70.00. How can you go wrong with that? I prefer the size of the smaller tank, and for $140 you can have a total of 94 c.i. of nitrogen (2 tanks) versus $130 for the 68 c.i. tank.

(I have the 48ci steel)Compact, it has great looks, and is very affordable. Definitely a great tank to buy for a 'cocker. I reccomend this product for those of you who want a good nitro tank that is not like 300.00 dollars. Also it screws directly into a back bottle(which is conveinent). A great step-up for you C02 users.
It is a little on the heavy side, but you get used to it. It also doesn't hold that much air,(not many shots) but my field refills it for free so I dont mind. Also on l.p. guns(such as a spyder)it only gets like 300 shots, but on my 2k 'cocker, it gets about 400 shots. Also the thread saver is a little cheesy, but I never use it.(Only for you people who care).
In conclusion, a great tank to buy for 70.00. It is without a doubt worth its cost. It compares with similar tanks, unless you are like a money crazy newbie who likes to piss away money on 300.00 tanks. I would strongly reccomend this product if you are looking into it.
This tank is a great up grade for those in more climactic regions it improves consistency and is an exceptional value and it install with no other hardware necessary.The boost from c02 in 70F weather c02 produces 650psi (appx) compared to nitro at a consistent 850 from these tanks.I love this tank!!!!
The label has ripples in it ensuring at some point it will come off And the logo on the stainless valve is of course a sticker 9/10 times put on crooked....
Tank is great works like promised and looks attractive good price is a definate plus the label is no big deal and the sticker on the valve is a small gripe.The tank is good looking a great performer and a great upgrade from c02
CHEAP!!!! I have had nothing but luck with it. The reg seems to work really well. It is really short, so it can help squeeze into small areas.(I have the 68ci)
Heavy. The tank is fairly fat, I needed to buy a new 4+1 pack just to hold it because my old one wouldn't.
Overall, this is a good starter tank. Eventually I think I will upgrade to a fiber wrapped tank, but so far this has been a good investment. I really advise that you use it with a remote because it is fairly heavy.
