^Do the math... also have a look at thier mags and the ones on tunamart.com before you buy.

as far as shots per tank, someone here will let you know soon.

You really just have to shoot it and find out. My guess is around 800. More or less pending on things like velocity, hot fills, paint to bore, ETC.

Weight:
Mech mags hover around +/- 2 lbs. At least the RPG's do

Efficiency:
Efficiency depends on too many external factors like barrel porting, barrel length, paint-to-barrel match, making it hard to give you a hard 'n fast number.

More porting= more inefficient. Barrels typically longer than 12" are more inefficient, and a bad paint-to-barrel match can attribute to inefficiency.

To get an idea though...

All blow-forward designs get similar efficiency. If you know what an Ion gets, or a Freestyle, youll have a general idea of what a mag gets.

45/3000 = 450 shots
45/4500 = 675 shots

On a Mag, it will be less, but as others have said, there are a lot of other factors involved for efficency.

Ive asked the efficancy question a number of times, and this is the answer i get the most. I personally dont know, but ive heard you get less than 675.

You can count on that with an Automag, as they arent the most efficient markers out. That was a basic table of measurement to get lordofwar in the ball park.

I get 600 easily of a 45/4500 (usally have 1200psi left in tank). I have an X-Valve with LX. That number is with so-so barrel to paint match.
