Reg And Tank Weights

IF YOU HAVE WEIGHTS EMAIL ME P8NTBALLSTEVE@P8NTBALLSTEVES.COM

This is for all the people who keep asking how much a system weighs:

First off, the bottles are not made by the reg companies, they are made by just a few places (carlton and luxfor are the most common). Luxfor bottles are lighter than carlton, so the real difference will matter with what regulator you put on the bottle, as you can get a luxfor bottle to put any of these regs on, and most companies will use more than one bottle company depending on what they can get in stock.

So, with that being said, here are the ACTUAL weights, NOT guesses, or estimations of the SCREW IN regs that are out there. Yes, some regs are missing, but that is because either I cannot actually weigh them, or I cannot find information on what they weigh from the company:

REG LENGTHS now included (not including tang on inside of tank)

ACI Bulldog III............................................... .(191.25 grams) (2 7/16")
Air America "THE REG"........................(182.87 grams)
Angel Air Adjustable reg...........................(498.95 grams)**
Archon Ignition reg...........................................(124 .03 grams)* (round body)
Category 5............................................(148. 95 grams ) (length 2 7/16")
Centerflag Hyperflow 420..................................(129.9 grams) (length 2 5/16") (hex body)
CP Reg............................................... ..(131.00 grams)
CP Reg (LP)..........................................(135 gr.)
Crossfire Regs..................................(215.55 grams) (2 11/16")
CrossFire (LP)....................................(218 gr.)
Dye Throttle.....................................(136. 74 grams)
DXS Reg..............................................( 244.00 grams) (2 7/8")*
Guerrilla Air Micro Myth(MP)..................(92 gr.)
Guerrilla Air MYTH..........................(100g) (length 1 1/4")
Guerrilla Air Ambush..........................(121.2 grams) (length 2 1/4")
Guerrilla Air Assault...........................(123.5 grams) (length 2 9/16")
MacDev Legionair..............................(140.00 grams)*
Nitroduck iReg.......................................(108.96 g (.24lbs)
WGP/FUEL screw in/Air America Screw'n....(189.75 grams) (length 2.03")
PMI pure energy reg..........................(194.65 grams) (2 9/16")
Max Flow Micro......................................(206.9 grams) (3")**
Nitroduck Plasma (3k reg)......................(217.92 grams) (2 3/4")*
Nitroduck Plasma (4500)........................(226.80 grams) (2 3/4")*
Nitro Duck X-stream......................(272.4 grams) (2 3/4")*
P3 regulator (HP): 203gr.
PMI/Pure Energy Reactor II (LP)......... (180 gr.)

*** Some regs listed are adjustable, and thus are not as light as others, the adjustable regs are the Air America Me'Lee, and the Nitro Duck X-Stream, and angel air reg. Nitro Duck regs, as well as a few other heavier regs are heavier as materials used are Alum/Brass/Stainless. Regs made in the USA and are handmade (not made on assembly lines) include Nitro Duck and Guerrilla air, and possibly many others.

*Denotes weight Given by manufacture and/or others who have weighed the reg for me. Actual reg NOT on hand to weigh.

** Denotes regs that do NOT require an additional ASA/bottomline adaptor.

(All regs not denoted with * are regs taken off of a bottle, so they are from actual runs of the reg, just like you would buy in any store, and weighed with a Galaxy 400 Laboratory Digital Scale.)

To help you compare, because most people in the US don't use grams, a standard viewloader VL200 non motorized hopper weighs 138 grams without any paintballs.


Bottle weights :
Choose your reg, and add the weight of your bottle to come up with total system weight:

Catalina Aluminum 47/3000 DOT- 3AL3000.................2.7 lbs (1225.8 Grams)

Luxfer Carbon Fiber 45/4500 DOT 10915................... (820.0 Grams)
Carleton Glass Fiber 45/4500 DOT 11005...................1.9lbs (861.8 Grams)
Gayston Carbon Fiber 48/4500 DOT 14387.................1.65 lbs (??? Grams)
Gayston Carbon Fiber 50/4500 DOT 14387.................1.7 lbs (??? Grams)
Inocom Carbon Fiber 68/4500 DOT 14003 ................. 2.03lbs (923 Grams)
Carleton Carbon Fiber 68/4500 DOT-11194.................2.1 lbs (953.4 Grams)
Carleton Glass Fiber 68/4500 DOT-11005....................2.6 lbs (1180.4 Grams)
Luxfer Carbon Fiber 68/4500 DOT 10915....................2.1 lbs (953.4 Grams)
Gayston Carbon Fiber 68/4500 DOT 14387..................2.1 lbs (??? Grams)
SCI "white" Carbon Fiber 68ci 4500psi 08/2005 bottle...2.5 lbs (1133.9 Grams)
Gayston Carbon Fiber 70/4500 DOT 14387.................2.15 lbs (??? Grams)
Luxfer Carbon Fiber 88/3000 DOT 10915....................2.3 lbs (1044.2 Grams)
Gayston Carbon Fiber 88/4500 DOT 14387.................2.65 lbs (??? Grams)
Gayston Carbon Fiber 90/4500 DOT 14387.................2.7 lbs (??? Grams)

Stako/ceasair Composite bottle (NOT DOT or TC approved)....1.75lbs (793.8 Grams)


Thanks to brett at nitro duck for information, as well as moogle on pbnation for giving wieghts of various regs.

Understanding that many other paintball forums have now taken this information, and posted it on their sites, Please give credit to where it's due (IE the thanks line, and to PBNation)

5/30/09 EDITED TO ADD IN MORE REG WEIGHTS (thanks Sepet!) -Sartek

Thank you DarkArmorPB for this amazing post:




I always see people asking how long this tank is compared to that tank. I got a few tanks together to take a comparison size pic. I believe these are the most common sized tanks used today. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

From Large to small, "right to left" these are approximate bottle sizes.

114 cubic inch. 11 3/4
22 cubic inch. 11 1/2
92 cubic inch. 10
68 cubic inch. 9
45 cubic inch. 8 1/2
47 cubic inch. 8 1/4
70 cubic inch peanut. 7 3/4
48 cubic inch. 7 <---Shortest bottle of them all.
13 cubic inch. 7 1/4





Closeup of the most commonly used bottles out of this selection



Some C02 tanks. I know, I dont have the 12 or the 14 oz bottles.

20 oz
9 oz
7 oz
9 oz stubby
3.5 oz
12 gram




Pic showing the smallest bottle which is the 4 oz brass eagle steelie C-02



Pm me if you have any questions.

DA

some of them are changing. I think some of the gayston cylinders were being replaced with luxfers.

I personally own a CP 68/4500 and a DXS 68/4500, the weight difference is very noticiable. According to what you said, they both use the same cylinder. I find it hard to believe that it is in the regulator alone. Any suggestions or ways to find out if the cylinders are really the same?

The weight is in the reg. Check the DOT number and the bottle should say inocom on it somewhere. (I believe)

PMI minireg 1, Old school PE reg, AA Raptor Rex.

And because it's useful... A pound is 453 grams.
