You think $160 shipped is a good price for a new AA 45/45? I am trying to find the best deal I can for a tank at the moment.

Are you dead set on a AA tank? I would really consider a Crossfire. I just don't want you to regret it later.

Not really no. Its just a good price I came across. I've had a crossfire in the past and liked it. I'll most likely keep an eye out for a cheap crossfire hp 45/45. I'll most likely wait till i get my gun back from aka after having it anno'd and see what feels more confortable. I used to have a 68 with a small drop on an angel so I'm curious to see how a 45/45 on a unimount or rail/asa feels. I'll have to swing by the local pb shop monday and see what they have.

Technical question. Can Palmer's put wedgits into a cocker-threaded barrel? If so, that would help with the possible roll out due to the closed bolt firing.

I've read before that they can. Someone on this forum said they had it done for 15 dollars plus return shipping.

EDIT: here is the thread http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...hlight=wedgits

Scroll down to verruckt's post.

I recommend looking for a used 68-70ci/4500 HP Crossfire preset. While Air America makes great regs, my experience with Crossfire has been nothing short of perfect. I've never had a single problem with it. You can usually find one with 3-5 years left on the tank for under $150. Keep an eye out for sales on websites, too.

As the king (at least locally) of sniffing out deals on used equipment, 160 for a preset screw-in tank is pretty bad.

Crossfire
Pure Energy
Centerflag (my personal favorite)
all of these are great tanks, and won't do you wrong. I've dealt with centerflag and crossfire's customer service, and they're both great.

Considering you're getting a mill and anno job on your excal, you're not going to see your gun until maybe mid august at the earliest. with that in mind DON'T BUY YOUR TANK NOW!
Wait until mid-late august, when people are going back to college, and realize that they won't have enough money for beer, or time to play, so they unload their gear at unbelievable rates.

I haven't paid more than 110 for a tank, and they all have had at least 3 years of hydro left. best deal I found was a new (won in a tournament) CF hydroflow for 90 bucks. Keep an eye on the bst threads around this time of year. Plus there's less competition for gear because the majority of the people who would challenge for the stuff are broke from back to school also, so you can really lowball them.

As for HP/LP, it doesn't really matter, you're not going to be shooting fast enough to starve a decent tank.

Along these lines, you can find a used cp set pretty cheap these days. the only difference between the newer and older set is cosmetic.

Thanks bro. I'll keep all that in mind. Crossfire has treated me well in the past so I'll definately keep an eye out. No extra milling for me but I am looking at getting some very unique (read: time consuming) anno done so I doubt I'll be needing a tank anytime soon.

I am seconding that wedgits comment earlier.
Wedgits are a great deal and work really well and are inexpensive.

If I wasn't getting a cp kit or redz pepper kit I'd most likely get that done. Anyone have experience with either of these kits?
