Today I started counting my shots and was surprised at the number.
My 1350 psi regulated tank started at 3000 psi and shot over 200 times til 900 psi remained. This was using my 18 inched .177 barrel shooting 7.9 gr CP pellets.
Not bad for 1 refill 🙂December 21, 2007 at 10:48 pm #29897mm123522Participant
Looks like an interesting set up!!
How well can you see over that “fat” tank? Is sighting Hard?
What size tank ? How many cubic inches volume? What diameter?
Is it 4500 psi? Looks like carbon fiber, Is it light weight?

It is a bit tricky looking over the fat tank, but not too bad.
The tank is carbon fiber and the size is 45 CU which can be filled to 4500 psi.
It’s not too heavy either. I bought it used from a paintball shop over the summer. It’s nice because of the built in gauge and refill nipple. The tank fits well with the CO2 adapter from Airforce.December 22, 2007 at 4:59 am #29923wvanryperParticipant
I was just measuring mine:
NitroDuck 45ci 4500psi (made by Luxfer)
tank alone is 8.50″ overall, 3.50″ diam nominal, 3.547 actual
tank + regulator (Nitro Duck) is 10.25″
tank + regulator + AirForce CO2 adapter is 14.625″ to shoulder of thread
Here are some pics. Scope is a Leapers 8-32×56 mounted
on an AirForce trirail and Accushot one-piece high mount.
Height isn’t the problem. Overall length and current lack of a buttpad is.

Wow! over 200 shots from that tank!? thats impressive, at what power setting?December 23, 2007 at 11:32 am #30034quote Antares:
the power wheel doesnt effect the CO2 adapter. it’s always fixed power and regulated to output 1350 psi.
7.9 gr .177 pellets shoot at 930 fps and 14.3 .22 pellets at 830 fps.December 24, 2007 at 5:39 am #30101mikemvParticipant
Next thing youâ€™ll see is a screw in regulator for a std tank.

They use to be made for paintball. One of you genius needs to develop a reg that a screw in model.December 24, 2007 at 7:11 am #30105mikemvParticipantquote WalkonKing:
One home development was posted recently, fellow in Demark as I recall. Looked like GREAT work! But as we are thinking it is only a mater of time one may find a screw in type,, more or less off the shelf. 😉
Seems no end to good adaptaions ❗ ❗ 😉December 24, 2007 at 3:34 pm #30110crimsonParticipant
Hope those chickens are fine! 😀
What’s that on the barrel? A “muzzle brake” silencer?December 24, 2007 at 4:08 pm #30114
haha the chickens are fine.
I use a RWS muzzle brake that i purchased from MAC1 for $60. It doesnt make it silent but it helps 🙂December 24, 2007 at 4:30 pm #30118

Well… if it doesn`t get quieter, at least it looks very nice!
Hope you don`t mind if I “borrow” (hehe… steal) the idea!
Happy holidays and have fun!December 25, 2007 at 12:46 am #30143voltar-1Participantquote sirjeigo:
How many shots ‘on the reg’ ? from 3000 to 1350psi?
Walter…December 25, 2007 at 2:07 pm #30172artemesParticipant
where would i find a reg that goes to 1350, all the ones i have found only go to 1000?
