you could make one out of pvc... or you could buy a co2 tank.. or get a plain old normal metal one from homedepot or something... it would be a big help if you could give us the air tanks intended use and how much pressure you want to put in it. that way we can tell you which kind would be the best fro you

I think he wants something for a BBMG seeing as he posted in the BBMG section. A PVC tank is possible, but considering the intended use, I would not recommend it. CO2 is possible too, but it would get expensive. Even a 5-gallon air tank would get drained quickly by a BBMG. I recommend you buy an air compressor with at least a 5 gallon tank.

you could rip the nail gun apart and use it for a cannon, they are pretty much the same as a QEV

Just take the nail gun part off.

btw, in your heading, it should be an air tank, as air has a vowel as its first letter.
