    Default 310 bar Carbon Fibre Air Tanks.

    http://www.airhog.com/A6_Tanks.html

    88cu/ft @ 4500psi

    This tank is very nice looking, and using the fill calculator provided I worked out that this tank will fill my s410 51 times to 190 bar from a refill level of 100 bar. Very light as well.

    $625 including gauges and hoses. Anywhere locally I can get one of these ?

    Have you tried renting from Afrox? I am doing some home work, apparently they are 4500 - 6000 psi and you fill your scuba tank from them (with a regulator). They are filled with nitrogen

    any ideas anyone!!!

    regards

    Default Gasses

    Air force(talon) have issued a report that nitrogen is as safe as compressed air and using it on thier air rifles will not void the warrenty (unlike helium).
    There is no performance benifit to using nitrogen as air is 71% nitrogen. The primary benefits are

    1\ Bigger tank (more fills)
    2\ More importantly the gas is dry

    I have a 5000psi tank at the moment...think I got the 68cu though, which I use for paintball.

    To get a similar setup, get a remote coil. It has a quick release adapter one end to connect to the paintball marker (this case your pcp) and the other screws onto the cylinder.

    The quick release might not be the same size as used by your rifle. Most hydrolic outfits will have the correct connecters. Hey, they could even make up the whole hose with bleed valve is needed.

    Go to www.paintball.co.za - Shop - Air Accessories - Compressed air.
    They have a rep in DBN if you decide to buy from them.

    With the paintball we used Nitrogen as well...some like it but I found that my fps varied too much. With CP I got a +- 3fps diffs. The Nitrogen was usually more...
    Don't know if weather and some other factors were in play??

    You could use nitrogen, but compressed air is most probably a lot cheaper as well.

    I had a look at the Paintball Bottles but they seem rather small. only 68 cubic inches of air (0.039351 cubic feet) at 4500psi, according to the fill calculator on the airhog site that not even enough to fill a 211cc AA s410 once !!

    The Tank Above is 88 Cubic feet at 4500psi.

    Maybe I should just look around for a 6lt 300 bar bottle.
