Turns out he just got one for himself… the tank is steel, not aluminum, if that makes any difference. Yeah I’ll direct him to the Chalet, or to a guy at this scuba shop who treats me real good. My friend who bought the tank has been doing C02 the whole time, so I think my dark side has rubbed off on him lol. He’s been eye ballin’ the Crosman Discovery big time in the last few days. Anyways, thanks for the input, hopefully he didn’t purchase a paperweight.
If he got a steel tank for $40 it is likely a 72cf tank that is rated to 2400psi.
Or he got a really, really good deal.
And right you are Rusty. He came by today with it. It has a 2400 psi rating, and is obviously smaller than my 80 cu ft alumi. I thought steel tanks could hold more pressure? Anyways the only good thing I could think of for him is that the benji Discovery he’s getting only needs 2000 psi, and gun comes with pump so he could pump to top it off and make it last longer I figure.
I just thank God he didn’t pick the other tank up for me… a 2400 psi tank for a 2900 psi gun that QUITS at 24/2500.. that tank would have been a 40 dollar paperweight for me even if it had current hydro/visual… whew!!!
