Let's take a 68/4500 tank for an example. New, they are selling for around $150-$160. Tanks in hydro sell for around $100. Generally, they have a fresh hydro, or are only a year or so since they were hydrotested. Now, depending upon how much hydrotesting costs in your area, whether by paintball shop or the place that actually does the hydrotesting itself, one can reasonable expect to drop the price by the cost of hydrotesting, and then maybe $10 or so. So it isn't out of hand to see an out of hydro 68/4500 tank selling for $60-$70. One can apply that same logic to other sizes and pressures of tanks as well.
