Ok guys... stop saying you cant put HPA in a co2 bottle... sure you cant put 4500 psi in them... but fields will fill CO2 bottles with HPA... field operators need to be trained to fill... so they know what they are doing...
Yes co2 bottles arent made for HPA, there not regulated, and not rated as high. But co2 can flux all the way up to 1200 just on a hott day...
The burst disks(as already stated) are rated to 1800 psi... meaning that anthing from 0 - 1600 psi is a safebet!!

Ok, so, from my understanding of what has been said, co2 bottles CAN be filled with HPA to about 1600 psi? Also, doall of them have burst disks? Including the one I posted earlier? But still, I was wondering what a 72 ci HPA tank would last?!?!?

3000 psi, every fitting on my gun is 1/4". Loading system out of a 2" T. And I would use roughly 120 psi...

So, it would be great if you guys could post what you use, and how long it last. I don't mean to be all needy and stuff, but I want to get tthe right thing... I am between a 3lb CO2 tank, or a 72ci 3000-4500psi HPA/N2 tank...


Thank you very much for any answer...

The problem is that is a very hard question to answer. It all depends on pressure and flow efficiancy. we dont really know those variables.

If you are between the two i can deffianltly tell you that the co2 tank will hold more air.

So, I am still wondering, because everyone is giving a different answer, could this particular tank be filled with N2/O2? If so, to what psi would be safe?

yes but it wasnt made for it and will put out whatevev pressure you put in unlike a real hpa tank which has a built in regto keep things at 800 psi and prevent your paintball gun from blowing to pieces taking you hands with it

A pressure vessel is a pressure vessel... 1800 psi is 1800 psi
so you can fill it that high. If your really unsure... give the guns at paintball technical institute a call.
