Action Village N2 tanks

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm looking at getting a 68 ci 4500 psi tank for my Smart Parts Epiphany and noticed that the Action Village tank is only $130.

http://www.actionvillage.com/031-187-0003

I was just wondering if these tanks are any good considering the price? I want the tank to be light and dependable with plenty of potential shots. I usually just paly for fun and don't get involved with tournaments or anything. My current tank is a very heavy Pure Energy 70 ci 3000 psi steel tank. I also noticed that the Invert tank 56 ci 4500 psi (zephyr paintball.com) is on sale for $120 as well. Any thoughts on this tank?

Actionvillage does not manufacture tanks. the tanks they have are probably mislabeled or purchased cheap from other manufacturers.

thus the discount. and hence the missing label.

i'd do it, as long as you can see the hydro date.

It says "Hydro test date may be as old as January 2008", which means it may be a year and a half into its hydro cycle... so if it were a 3 year tank, it'd have 1.5 years left. Considering it's most likely a 5 year tank (I didn't look at it closely enough), it should have at least 3.5 years left.

i just got one for my epiphany and i went from the big steele tank and i noticed a huge difference in weight and balance in the gun. Its good deal the tank regulator is adjustable from high to low preasure and i have gotten plenty of shots out of mine.
