I'm more interested in how this will affect the used tank market.

Of course it will, Inocom tanks are the same quality as the tanks ninja use. BST has SLP ninja tanks all over it for $130-170, why would i pay that when i could get a brand new inocom tank with an slp reg on it for $144 to my door?

Inocom tanks were THE super light tank to get along with Luxfer for a very long time. Crossfire was light but their huge regs made them feel like 10lbs.

Did Inocom miraculously turn to poop overnight?

You are just trolling now, aren't you? A quality bottle combined with a quality regulator equals a quality tank.

I'm not gonna argue this anymore, you guys win and clearly know everything.

The only other thing I'm going to point out is that NOT ONE of the questions asked of ANS have been answered and probably never will. A reputable and trustworthy company would have answered them long ago.

So how come Ninja, GA, and Crossfire havent answered our questions? Must be because they're not reputable companies right?


Companies are not going to discuss they're business practices with teenagers on a forum. If ANS was being so shady and ****ing over reg companies how come the reg companies arent on here say ing "hey we are being ****ed by the middle man" or "we didnt know and now we are mad" Crossfire already posted in this thread and didnt have bad things to say. Its been confirmed Ninja is monitering the thread and they havent posted to protest. Why dont we all let the adults run they're companies the way they want to run them, and we will just buy the product. Let consumers worry about consuming and companys worry about they're bottom line, money.


Do you have any idea how quick GA was to publicly protest ANS for selling fake myths? Dont you think if this practice by ANS was illegitimate they would have protested by now? It still hasn't been proven that these are ANS tanks assembled by ANS anyways.

I totally agree with this post. Who knows what Ninja, Crossfire, or guerrilla air is getting paid for their regs? The fact is people are still going to buy their tanks, brand loyalty is something a lot of these companies have, one product isn't going to change the fact that they are all still making money.

Its business at its finest, if the other companies feel like their getting the short end of the stick they would do what any companies would do....Lower their prices, the fact is ANS is still making a profit off of these.

Right, because bringing a private inter-company matter into a public forum has worked out so well in the past. It turns into a ****-fest, and it is bad for everyone involved.

Well, at least one company was smart enough to do something about these tanks. See website to find out who.

I'm not arguing anything, I'm simply pointing out that one manufacturer was smart enough to do something about this.

So they buy the bottle and a reg from companies at a profitable price point(just a life fact, no manufacturer will ever sell you a bottle or reg without any kind of $$$ gain. And yes, those prices include R&D) and sells them for a fair price.

What's not to like? Props to ANS.

Ninja pulled their regs from this sale. Really not a biggy, you can still just buy a reg and install it.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
