When to hydro?

All steel tanks have a 3 year hydro with a 24 year life span meaning you can rehydro it 8 times
all co2 tanks have a 5 year hydro with an unlimited life
now for the HPA tanks: they have a life of 15 years

E-07277 /SCI/3 year
E-09634 /Luxfer/3 year
E-10915/Luxfer/ Last tested before may 11, 01 3 years, after that its 5 year test
E-10945 /SCI/Last tested before july 1, 01 3 years After this is 5 years
E-11005 /Carelton/3 years
E-11194 /Carelton/Last tested before july 1, 01 3 years After this is 5 years
E-12479/Luxfer/3 years
E-12695 /Global composites international/DO NOT USE have been decertified by DOT

If you dont understand this simply put if your tank reads E-10945 and is made by SCI you must use a three year cycle if your tank was last hydroed before July 1, 2001 after you get your tank hydroed you can again resume using a 5 year hydro cycle
Same goes for E-11194 by carelton, E-10915 by L uxfer is the same only with a different date

Weight of air in your tank


From www.dueydogpaintball.com



Air system weights

First off, the bottles are not made by the reg companies, they are made by just a few places (carlton and luxfor are the most common). Luxfor bottles are lighter than carlton, so the real difference will matter with what regulator you put on the bottle, as you can get a luxfor bottle to put any of these regs on, and most companies will use more than one bottle company depending on what they can get in stock.

So, with that being said, here are the ACTUAL wieghts, NOT guesses, or estimations of the SCREW IN regs that are out there. Yes, some regs are missing, but that is because either I cannot actually wiegh them, or I cannot find information on what they wiegh from the company:

REG LENGTHS now included (not including tang on inside of tank)

The Guerrilla Air MYTH..........................(80-95 grams)

the Guerrilla Air Ambush..........................(121.2 grams) (length 2 1/4")

the Guerrilla Air Assault...........................(123.5 grams) (length 2 9/16")

Ignition reg...........................................(124.03 grams)* (round body)

the hyperflow 420..................................(129.9 grams) (length 2 5/16") (hex body)

CP Reg............................................... ...(131.54 grams)*

the Dye Throttle.....................................(136.74 grams)

the MacDev Legionair..............................(140.00 grams)*

Category 5............................................(148.95 grams ) (length 2 7/16")

the Air America "THE REG"........................(182.87 grams)

the WGP/FUEL screw in/Air America Screw'n....(189.75 grams) (length 2.03")

the ACI............................................... .(191.25 grams) (2 7/16")

the PMI pure energy reg..........................(194.65 grams) (2 9/16")
*PMI regs are also sold as DXS regs, ANS regs, Java regs, an many others)

Max Flow Micro......................................(206.9 grams) (3")**

the Crossfire Regs..................................(215.55 grams) (2 11/16")

Pre Set Nitro Duck (3k reg)......................(217.72 grams) (2 3/4")*

Pre Set Nitro Duck (4500)........................(226.80 grams) (2 3/4")*

the Nitro Duck "Feather Light" X-stream.....(249.5 grams) (2 3/4")*

MacDev Conquest...................................(285 grams)*

Angel Air Adjustable reg...........................(498.95 grams)**
*** Some regs listed are adjustbable, and thus are not as light as others, the adjustable regs are the Air America Me'Lee, and the Nitro Duck X-Stream, and angel air reg. Nitro Duck regs, as well as a few other heavier regs are heavier as materials used are Alum/Brass/Stainless. Regs made in the USA and are handmade (not made on assembly lines) include Nitro Duck and Guerrilla air, and possibly many others.

*Denotes wieght Given by manufacture and/or others who have wieghed the reg for me. Actual reg NOT on hand to weigh.

** Denotes regs that do NOT require an additional ASA/bottomline adaptor.

(All regs not denoted with * are regs taken off of a bottle, so they are from actual runs of the reg, just like you would buy in any store, and wieghed with a Galaxy 400 Laboratory Digital Scale.)

To help you compare, because most people in the US don't use grams, a standard viewloader VL200 non motorized hopper wieghs 138 grams without any paintballs.


Bottle Wieghts:
Choose your reg, and add the wieght of your bottle to come up with total system wieght:


Carleton Carbon Fiber 68/4500 DOT-11194....................2.1 lbs (953.4 Grams)
Carleton FiberGlass 68/4500 DOT-11005.......................2.6 lbs (1180.4 Grams)
Catalina Aluminum 47/3000 DOT- 3AL3000...................2.7 lbs (1225.8 Grams)
LUXFER Carbon Fiber 88/3000 DOT 10915-3000............2.3 lbs (1044.2 Grams)
LUXFER CARBON FIBER 68/4500 DOT 10915-4500...........2.1 lbs (953.4 Grams)
SCI "white" 68ci 4500psi 08/2005 bottle.......................2.5 lbs (1133.9 Grams)
SCI 70/4500 Stubby............................................ .....2.3lbs (1044.2 Grams)
Carleton Fiberglass 45/4500 DOT 11005...........1.9lbs (861.8 Grams)
stako/ceasair Composite bottle ......1.75lbs (793.8 Grams)
(NOT DOT approved, BANNED in millenium series)
Inocom 68/4500.............................................. ........2.2lbs (CP)
Inocom 45/4500 .................................................. ... .7kg ~ 1.54 lbs (CP)

Thanks to brett at nitro duck for information, as well as moogle, and others on pbnation for giving wieghts of various regs and bottles.

will be coming back and adding more pm me if you have anything you think lots of people will want to know about and i will research it and put it in here[img]

I've always wondered how much the air weighed inside the gun, cause you can feel a good difference after you fill it up.


Awesome man, thanks.
