My GI 48/3k is 1/2 inch more narrow but 3" longer than my Empire 48/45... It's entirely possible that the 47 is actually larger.

They make the 4500 cylinders in a peanut style now more often then not. They're shorter and fatter around which takes away the length. It's actually hard to find a full length cylinder these days.

They weren't as fat around and were longer. If you find a ninja 70/45 for instance that's a much more traditional style tank, like how the 68/45 used to be.

Just like this.



Notice how the 48 and 70 are fatter? And when you look at the 45 and 68 they're not as fat around and they're longer? The 68 is longer then the 70 (by 1 1/4 inch) but that's basically everything laid out there between a stubby and more traditional length.

its because the ci size is the volume it holds inside. technically you could have a tank thats 10 inches thick and only has a 47ci volume inside. i'd assume the aluminum 3000psi tanks are made thicker than the fiber wrapped tanks.

Carbon wrapped tanks can expand a bit more than aluminium tanks believe so. Also what everyone else said above.
