    Good Afternoon Everyone,

    I am a newbee here and this is my first post. I am getting ready to purchase a Talon SS. I am in the process of putting together a list of everything I will need for it. I am just not sure on what to get for the refill (dive) tank. Any advise or information would be great and if you can add anything that I might need please feel to mention it.
    Thanx
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff and welcome,

    With your Airforce gun you need the fill adapter and a scuba tank with a K valve. There are aluminum tanks and steel tanks. See what your budget can afford. Some tanks are 3000 psi and other 3300 psi. The higher the PSI the better because you will get more fills but he price does come up. A standard 3000 psi scuba tank will suffice. You will just have to go get it filled more often.

    Buy your tank from a local scuba shop and often they will give you deals on fills.

    Hope this helps!

    3000? Wouldn’t 4500psi scuba tank be much better? The price should not be much different. From 4500psi tank (12litres) you can fill 30-40 times depending of how low pressure you shoot.

    And welcome Jeff!

    Thank you for the welcome everyone. I think I am going to pass on the hand pump. I am a little on the lazy side and that looks like to much like work for me 😆

    I know a 4350psi scuba runs about $339 but they are hard to get and many places do carry them. A 3000 psi tank runs about $120 around here and the 3300 psi tanks around $200. A carbon fiber tank is a great way to go but not everyone can get them filled.

    I’m going to go for the 3300 psi tank Adam. Luckly I know where there is a dive shop less than 20 minutes away from my house and Airguns of Arizona is less than 10 minutes away. I think that about covers everything I need. Now all I need is the $$$

    So where do they dive in AZ?

    Wow. That’s quite a difference. Here in Finland the difference is much smaller. And divers are selling their 4500psi tanks away and switching to 3000psi all the time. So you can get one for a reasonable price.

    They dive for the corpse’s of all the stupid arse people who try to cross flooded creek and river beds during the monsoons. Oh, and we do have a few big lakes here as well, although I dont know if I would dive in them.

    Talk to the guys at AoA. One of the guys there bought a 3700 PSI tank from someplace here locally that sounded like a really good deal. Of course I cant remember either name atm. The shorter stocky guy with dark hair. I think he works part time during the week.

    Also, there is a sporting goods store at Gilbert and the 202, next to Walmart, that fills for like 6 bucks. From what Ive been told anyway. I think its called Sports Chalet? I could be wrong.

    Thanx for the heads up Shadoh. I might be going down there tomorrow after work to check them out and maybe buy my Talon SS. They are right buy the gun store that I do all of my business with. I think that is the Sports Chalet.
    Thanx again

    Since your going to actually be able to see your gun before you pay for it be sure to take it out into the sunlight to look at it. There were several batches of guns that had a serious pink tone to the bluing. If it does just have them pull out another one till you get one you like. They might grumble a bit (they wont) but they will be happy to do that for you.
