I just bought this tank today and then I read the first review about how some tanks were recalled because there was not enough carbon fiber.....Mine was not one of those DOT numbers so I should not have a problem. It only worries me. It was 213.99 which me with no more Christmas money....My mom is gonna kill me, she thought I was getting a macro line which was like 12 bucks. 201.99 difference......no biggie, only my life.
Very light, I thought it was empty until I saw the gauge. It also looks pretty cool. This is my first HPA tank which is nice. A bit heavier than my 20oz Co2 tank. I got the 68/4500 tank which is just about the right size I wanted. Its output is 800 psi out of the reg and into the gun. My A-5 runs at about 750 psi I think so Its just about right. It looks pretty cool, I shot it a couple times off my porch a couple minutes ago and it is LOUD! O well. If I need to quiet my gun then I will just put my X-chamber back on and use Co2-Co2 is very quiet on my gun with the x-chamber and bolt and barrel and other stuff. When I get my W.A.S. board fixed then I will update this review to make it more accurate and test the recharge rate and stuff like that. Consistency and stuff like that....
Pretty nice and stuff. Update when board is fixed. Will change the rating when I update.
Shares Reg with Guerrilla Air Ambush (I believe)
A bit expensive compared to my Pure Energy tank.
I purchased an Ignition 45/4500 tank from my local shop recently because i was having problems with the length of my pure energy tank. I have fairly short arms and had tried many different rail/drop combinations but was never fully comfortable with the tank.
My shop brought in a 45/4500 for me to try and i fell in love with it right away. Its very short (Tank and Reg) compared to my 68/3000. It also holds basically the same amount of air because of the higher pressure. The weight difference is amazing and it fits very well. The cost of the Ignition tank was about $40 more than the Pure Energy tank.
I have not experienced any drop off or shoot down since changing to this tank (Not that i shoot very fast) and i am very happy with it. I never experience any shoot down with my old Pure Energy tank either. I cannot comment on how it compares to other regs because i have no experience with them. I am still using the stock reg that came with my ION.
Overall i am very happy with this tank. Its a nice, small light tank and reg combo and i would have no problem recommending it.

Well the problem is it isnt strong enough.
It was recalled due to minimal carbon fiber being used during manufacturing
This tank is a waste of $200 this product is viewed as unsafe by the DOT and by NPPL and every major field/ store in the US. if you have one of these tanks that got recalled its $40 more dollars to get it fixed. and even when its fixed most fields still will not fill it
Dont buy it unless you need a good paper weight...and even then its not the best one ever
