“Mousefart”May I suggest that before buying a 4500psi tank you make sure you have a 4500psi source to fill it. I was told that “any scuba shop” can do it, but that turned out to be untrue. My scuba shop is only capable of 3500-ish. Luckily I found a paintball shop nearby that can handle 4300+ Nitrogen.

Alternatively, you may have the possibility of a gas supply store providing 6000psi nitrogen tanks. 

Point is, research and plan your solutions before buying. 

 

VERY true! I’m very fortunate that I have a dive shop 25 minutes away that can fill virtually anything. 4500 psi fills from empty are $8 and they fill while you wait. Great people as well. I just hope they stay around as long as I do.
