GCI Tank Recall As Of 8/25/2005

IGNITION Air Systems - Product Recall Notice August 25, 2005

In 2004 and 2005, IGNITION Air Systems, distributed by ARCHON Paintball Inc., were assembled using GCI (Global Composites International) carbon fiber bottles. These bottles were manufactured in the USA by GCI and supplied to ARCHON with correct DOT specification and certification. However, it has just been determined by the US DOT (Department of Transportation) that these bottles are unsafe and could cause serious injury or death. Do not use under any circumstances.

ARCHON Paintball Inc. is therefore issuing an immediate product recall of all IGNITION Air Systems with DOT- E 12695 certification.

The Department of Transportation recommends that anyone possessing one of these cylinders take it to a qualified refilling station to have the pressure relieved. These cylinders should NOT be refilled and will NOT be re-qualified for service. You can view this Safety Advisory Notice on the DOT website at:


Product Return Procedure

1. Call ARCHON Paintball Inc. at 1-864-675-0228 to register for product return / replacement authorization.

2. Have a qualified refilling station relieve the pressure from the tank.

3. Return the complete IGNITION Air System to ARCHON using the prepaid UPS ticket provided to you by ARCHON.

4. Enclose a check for $40.00 USD payable to ARCHON Paintball Inc. to have the tank replaced and the complete air system returned to you.

This product recall notice pertains to IGNITION Air Systems only. For all other air systems using GCI manufactured tanks, please contact the manufacturer. Thank you for your assistance. We look forward to providing you with high quality products and exceptional service.


Doug Brown
Vice President
ARCHON Paintball Inc.

they aresnt the ones who did it the company they bought their bottles from did. Also you are getting a brand new tank which is worth more than 40 dollars so i can gaurantee Archon is not making a profit on this
