I'm building an ultralight mini and I'm looking for the smallest compressed air tank out there. I think 45/3000 but before I buy one, I want to be sure.

I'm looking for small size, so less than 12 oz. what's the smallest tank out there for air?

NO CO2 TANKS!!!

Guys, here is what I'm looking at....

Ninja Paintball 13 ci 3000 psi Aluminum HPA Tank System

I'm trying to get 500 shots out of a tank as well. Is that possible?

A 13/3000 will not give you 500 shots. You'll get roughly 100-125 on that. It's meant for pump markers.
Also most 3000 tanks are metal, they're going to weigh 3-5 lbs. If you want light a metal tank is not the way to go. You're going to want to look at either a 45/49/50 ci 4500 psi tank. That's going to give you the shots you want and then some and also while being light. They're going to weigh much less then any metal tank as they're fiber wrapped.

we have a 35ci/3000psi aluminum bottle as well. Its similar to the shape of a 48/3000 aluminum bottle but shorter by a few inches. You will be able to get roughly 350-450 shots out of it, depending on how your marker is setup up and other factors such as paint/bore match, weather, etc.

Check the "news" forum.
There is a thread about a CF mini tank.
I'm not sure if its more than a proto type?
I hope not, because I need one next spring
