HPA Tank uncertainty.

Ok so I just got a used tank from Ebay and it still is in Hydro and everything. I got it with zero air out of the box and I noticed when I was shaking it I heard a small clicking or rattling sound. It turns out that my fill nipple has a small metal part in it that goes back and forth in the nipple when I shake it. Is this safe? The tank is a Pure Energy HPA 45/4500 Carbon Fiber Wrapped. The HPA Gauge is cracked but I don't think that matters much. But the rest is fine.
Is it safe to fill or is there anything I need to know?

yep, its supposed to do that. it has to be able to move because when they fill it that pin moves back to let air in, and when its full the pressure holds it in the forward position and seals it off. only thing you might ever have to worry about is they can develop a small leak sometimes just from wear and tear. even then its still fine to use, just annoying. easy to replace though and they're about $10.

north mississippi eh? ever play at CHF?

I used to..then they closed the airball. So I go to Memphis to play on BYOP days. All I play is airball though. So I haven't gone to CHF in a while except to waste paint in 2 games ha.
