What is the Gen4's air efficiency like?

I'd like to build a Gen4 around the end of this year(among other guns) and was wondering how many shots you guys usually get off a 4500 fill(whatever size your tank may be, just list the tank size too). Thanks for the info!

I dont usually pay attention to how efficient my infamous is, but the other day i noticed a week ago that i shot 2 pods (280) and a hopper (180) off about 1000 psi....460 shots/1000 psi
which seems a little wrong cause it means i'm getting around 2000 shots from a 68/45, so maybe it was a little more than 1000 psi i lost

but the efficiency on a properly setup and broken in gen4 is amazing

i get like 8-9 pods and a hopper off my 45/4500 (never had a full 4500 fill but did a rough conversion from 3900 to 4500).

Not right now, probably in the begining of 2007.

And the great efficiency makes me happy.

Only 200 more shots from 23 extra ci? That sounds odd...seeing as how that's a 50% increase...

Those are not the rates from my Timmy. They are from my friend's Infamous and he doesn't fine tune his markers.
