hey i dont know how many people will make it down this far, but i just wanted to add.... that it is not mandatory for the companys making the c02 tanks to use loc tite. but rather to torque them to a designated torque. and i do know that there are some companys still today that do just that, and dont use loc tite. so for all of you that think putting that little line on your tank isnt for you because your tank is new and hasnt been opened....... THINK AGAIN.  you can never be to safe!!! so if anyone is not sure if there tanks were first put together with loc tite, check with the company that made it.  i only use pure energy tanks, and i have checked.... they do use loc tite on All of there (new) tanks.

i was wondering, what about kevlar tanks? i know there stupidly expencive, but kevlar is really strong stuff. do you have to hydro test them, or throw them away after a few years? it would suck to spend that much and have to throw it away in 5 years.

My team (Team Ignorance) Has only shot off one burst disk and broken one CO2 tank one was like uber close to empty and I unscrewed it from the asa and the bronze thing stayed on and then the other one we just left outside with a camera watching it the burst disk shot off only thoughit was funny and thus is why team Ignoronce will die a horrific and young (but funny) death because we like to blow stuff up

explosions ARE cool... for the most part, this is stuff i learned in high school chemistry, its not that complicateed, just be careful, and read the safety guide that im sure insurance demands they send out with the marker and bottle...

Yeah.  The other day I was reading an article in the paper and it mentioned how a kids tank flew off the gun, and hit someone in the head, killing her.  But it said it flew off while he was disasembling the gun.  Who would take their gun apart with the air on  Some people are idiots.


i heard about that too supposedly it was some kid at his birthday party...that girl that got hit in the head was his mother, he killed his mom on his birthday



i heard it was due to the fact it was a blade and the thing broke and sent the 12 gram flying. i only have heard this though
gun setup:
Tippmann A-5 32 Degrees exp. chamber Rt. 7.5 BB Inch bigshot Pmi Flame drop w/ empire asa 32 degrees macroline kit
Bunker me, I dare you.

Yea they still do make 5000 psi tanks, they are expensive as hell though. i can imagine what would happen if my 4500 psi 91 cu inch dye tank went flying off, that might be an act of terrorism er somethin.

hi first time on the forum, just let you know that over in the UK all our CO2 bottles are tested every 5 years by law and all valves have to have the nail polish marks this is also the case for our comp air bottles and ALL valve threads are locktited
