CF 4500 PSI tank and regulator
« on: June 04, 2016, 08:32:27 PM »
So I am looking at getting a new CF tank 70CF or 90CF (Scuba size).  I need it to not be a scuba tank so my paint ball store can fill it.  I see them at Pyramid Air but they are regulated to 2900, same for Air Guns of AZ.  If I want a little more freedom in filling my gun because I am capable of watching an air guage, what do you suggest?  I really don't want to buy a compressor.  I could use that money for another gun and am not handy.  It sounds like everyone who gets one has to work on it to make it work.  I am not that guy.

I would like to be able to fill to about 3500 because some of the larger air guns will need those fill pressures.

Thanks.  I am debating between that and a Great White from airttanksforsale.  I like to buy American Made if I can but also want something that works and will last.

I have the Tiger Shark from JoeB, no complaints whatsoever. Great White is a little bigger, so less trips the the PB shop if you don't have a compressor.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

The only tank from PA that has a regulator on it is the 90 cubic inch tank. The 2 larger tanks have the jubilee valve. Unless I'm not seeing it, got a link?

Anyone wondering, I just ordered from Travis...when I got my new gun.  I'm hooked.  Horribly hooked.

Be careful, right now the CF tanks have a 15 year life.  Even with a hydro no one will fill them.
 after 15 years.

I don't care.  I'm getting a compressor too so I can assure you it will be filled.  I'm a problem solver.

FYI  Fairly recent development; Digital Wave, a company out of CO, has been granted permission to inspect and extend CF bottles an additional 15 yrs.   Link to info article elsewhere in this forum.
