Where do you buy tanks these days?

I'm looking for a bit of info. Last time I played I was using a hyperflow regulator from centerflag... they appear to be long gone, and my tank is beyond being allowed to hydro test anymore.

So Who's making air systems these days? I prefer adjustable systems, but it seems like everything now is screw in...

Hoping to spend around 100 - 150. Am I in the ball park? This is attaching to an old AutoCocker so I don't need to have any amazing system.

Crossfire and Ninja are the way to go these days.

Adjustable isn't going to be the same as the Hyperflow or even older Smart Parts maxflo as in you can actually regulate the output pressure on the fly.
You're going to run into preset adjustable systems. In other words they're going to be set to one pressure but by removing or adding shims like with Ninja systems you'll change the output. Regs like crossfire will need a spring/piston swap to change the pressures.

You might want to look into seeing if you can just buy a bottle, without a reg. that way, you can use your Hyperflow. Crossfire is probably going to be the only company for that.

I thought about keeping the hyperflow, but I worry the darn thing is not going to seal right once I go through the trouble of buying a tank and finding parts to get it back in shape will be a pain.

Good info about how to adjust the presets, a set output shouldn't really matter. It's going to a palmer stabilizer anyway.

It's funny, it seems like back in the day every gun/apparel/paintball manufacturer used to have a tank system... oh how things change.

I'd go with Ninja myself. When I got back into the sport a little while back, I needed a new regulator for my tank and went with Ninja. Haven't looked back since
