    i don't know much about tanks and their setups.  i use my scuba tank and a benjamin yoke adapter to fill my pcps now, however, i'm looking at purchasing a rifle with a higher fill than 200 bar (my scuba tanks limit).

    so, a few questions…

     i may have a line on a used scba from a fire dept.  if i bought the scba what else would i need?

    if i went with new, who has the best prices? 

    who has the best selection?

    I would recommend contacting Joe Brancoto from Air Tanks For Sale in California,He can set you up for whatever you need plus he only sells top quality materials which is what you want when dealing with high pressure. Good luck

    So many questions. What's your budget? You SURE you can get them filled to 4500psi? I went the Ebay route for tanks & hdwre. Make sure it's all 4500 rated. Limit is 15 years on tank so be aware of mfg date AND  hydrotest/recertification date. I just gave one away (2003 mfg  date)  to someone with a compressor otherwise no shop will fill it.

    SCBA tanks are good for 15 years unless recertified(about 1/2 new) from made date. They also need a hydro test every 5 years. I've purchased 3 in the last year for $120 $140 and $145 delivered. Service for another 3-5 years and in hydro. For near new you pay dearly $450-$800. Make sure it's a 4500#, there are 3000# and 2200# and it has the 347 valve. New fill stations are from $40 see below. Airtanks plus is another dealer with used tested tanks or search Ebay can save $$$.

    Or you can buy them from http://www.acecare.cn/.

    They sell both CE and DOT certified tanks.

    Waiting time is longer since it's shipped from China.

    +1 for Joe Brancato…high quality tanks and valve systems. I like the set up with additional fill gauge which is more accurate and easier to read than the one on the end of my FX Dreamline.

    lots of good options, thanks!

    a fire dept not far from here was selling off their tanks a couple of months ago.  i'm going to call them and ask what, if any they have left.

    our fire dept won't fill tanks.  not even for a "donation".  i've tried with my scuba.  i used to work with a fire chief of a neighboring town, i'm going to contact him also.  the dive shop i use is a 45 minute drive and i haven't asked if they can fill to 4500 yet.  

    of course, there is also the hand pump route.  i could fill to 200 bar from my scuba, then top off to 230 with the pump.

    Important note: You'll find lots of tanks on eBay, but look for DOT labelled tanks.  Without that, a scuba or paintball shop won't touch it.  If you're going to fill your own with a compressor, then it doesn't matter.  I purchased one with 4 years of life left for about a hundred bucks.  Works great for my guns.
