Air System Wieghts and Sizes

IF YOU HAVE WIEGHTS EMAIL ME P8NTBALLSTEVE@P8NTBALLSTEVES.COM

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

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 wieghts, 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 wiegh them, or I cannot find information on what they wiegh from the company:

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


The Guerrilla Air MYTH..........................(100g) (length 1 1/4")

Nitroduck iReg.......................................(108.96g (.24lbs)

the Guerrilla Air Ambush..........................(121.2 grams) (length 2 1/4")

the Guerrilla Air Assault...........................(123.5 grams) (length 2 9/16")

Ignition reg...........................................(124.03 grams)* (round body)

the hyperflow 420..................................(129.9 grams) (length 2 5/16") (hex body)

the Dye Throttle.....................................(136.74 grams)

the MacDev Legionair..............................(140.00 grams)*

Category 5............................................(148.95 grams ) (length 2 7/16")

the Air America "THE REG"........................(182.87 grams)

the WGP/FUEL screw in/Air America Screw'n....(189.75 grams) (length 2.03")

the ACI............................................... .(191.25 grams) (2 7/16")

the PMI pure energy reg..........................(194.65 grams) (2 9/16")

Max Flow Micro......................................(206.9 grams) (3")**

the Crossfire Regs..................................(215.55 grams) (2 11/16")

Nitroduck Plasma (3k reg)......................(217.92 grams) (2 3/4")*

Nitroduck Plasma (4500)........................(226.80 grams) (2 3/4")*

the Nitro Duck X-stream......................(272.4 grams) (2 3/4")*

Angel Air Adjustable reg...........................(498.95 grams)**


*** Some regs listed are adjustbable, 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 wieght Given by manufacture and/or others who have wieghed 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 wieghed 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 wieghs 138 grams without any paintballs.


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

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 FiberGlass 68/4500 DOT-11005.......................2.6 lbs (1180.4 Grams)
Catalina Aluminum 47/3000 DOT- 3AL3000...................2.7 lbs (1225.8 Grams)
LUXFER Carbon Fiber 88/3000 DOT 10915....................2.3 lbs (1044.2 Grams)
LUXFER CARBON FIBER 68/4500 DOT 10915...................2.1 lbs (953.4 Grams)
LUXFER CARBON FIBER 45/4500 DOT 10915................... (820.0 Grams)
SCI "white" 68ci 4500psi 08/2005 bottle.......................2.5 lbs (1133.9 Grams)
Carleton Fiberglass 45/4500 DOT 11005........................1.9lbs (861.8 Grams)
stako/ceasair Composite bottle (NOT DOT 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)

The max flo micro regulator itself weighs 206.9 grams. Take into consideration however you don't need an asa or on/off since it is built in. Subtracting the weight of an asa and on/off (or asa with on/off) takes the max flo up there with the lightest setups. Consider the Guerrilla Air Ambush at 121.2g. Add 71.6g to that (assuming you are using an extremely light asa on/off combo such as this one by new designz: http://www.newdesignz.com/Misc_2.htm ) and your total weight comes out to 192.8g. That's about a 14g difference when compared to the max flo. Not bad

hope that helps

added with the note that no additional ASA/bottomline is needed.

actually the main reason i bought it was cause i like the feel of the compact setups adjustables give. i didnt want the extra weight of an adjustable however, just something with a high flow rate with preset output to feed my 2-liter+ =)

it was probably a 47 or 48cubic inch tank, I have never seen a 45/3000 before. 45/4500's were made well after the 47/3000's (or as PMI calles them 48/3000's) and were made to be 45cubic inches for a specific reason that has to deal with the manufacture of it, but can't remember what.

The reg on the Max-Flow Micro is 3" long (not including the tang, or the end of the macro fitting which extends slightly out the front of the reg about 5/16 ").

Also check your notes on the **, it should read:
** Denotes regs that do not require an additional ASA/bottomline adaptor.

sorry bout that, missed it, fixed, and thanks for the length.


rakim: The ignition is the round body version, the hyperflow 420 is the hex body version of centerflags regs, both made by centerflag. However, the new ignitions are made by Guerrilla Air, and will wiegh the same as the ambush.

antihero9: That's nice

CanfieldOO7: I will try, but I have not been able to get stubby tanks in to my shop in quite some time, but I will wiegh one if a customer brings one in.


DevilMayCare: Thank you for the wieght on that, but without the fill nipple (which can vary quite a bit) I can't add it in yet.

You may want to add the SCI tanks if you can. I'll post mine when I get home.
