    Hey everybody…Some of the details of my previous WTS ad changed so this is an update with those changes. Wanted to be as accurate and honest with everybody in this community as you all have been with me since I got into PCP’s and bought my Colibri.

    I have 7 carbon fiber tanks left for sale. They have manufacturer dates of 2011-2013.

    All are 9 liter 550cu in bottles, 97cuft! … Black in color…They all have SCBA slow flow valves, 15yr service life Their condition varies from good to a couple of very good tanks. I’ll describe each below with yr of manufacture, condition, price… pictures upon request. Just PM me the No. of the ones you’re interested in and a zip code so I can get shipping info. Im located in Pawleys Island SC…Tanks will go out FedEx ground and through my account, shipping would be 20 to 35 anywhere in the lower 48.

    My opinions of condition:
    Good – some scuffs/scratches, possibly a few minor nicks, no major chips or damage…Nothing deeper than the resin or paint beneath it

    Very good – very minor scuffs/few light scratches, maybe one or two very minor nicks.

    Regarding the tanks with no current hydrostatic test done. I’m not sure what you guys pay for these tests but I have a very reputable dive shop close by that will hydro any tank I have for $50. If it helps, I’ll have them do the work and send it to you with a current 5 yr hydro and add the 50 to the cost of the tank. Have no way of knowing if that price is good as it’s the only place close to me that I know of, that does hydros.

    1. 3-11, good shape, 250+shipping no current hydro

    2. 6-11, good shape, 250+shipping no current hydro SOLD

    3. 8-11 x 3, all in good shape 250+shipping no current hydro

    4. 9-11 good shape 225+shipping no current hydro SOLD

    5. 2-12 x 2, both in good shape 275+shipping, no current hydro

    6. 6-12, good shape 275+shipping …SOLD

    7. 5-13 x 4, all in good shape, 2 are very good 300+shipping…ALL SOLD

    8. 7-13 x 4, all in good shape, 2 are very good 325+shipping…3 SOLD… one left

    9. 8-07, lots of scuff marks, few deep scratches. Some Nicks. Worst condition of them all but took it today to have it inspected and it passed. Current hydro til 7-17 It is still solid and can be rehydroed. Let this one go cheapest at 175 plus shipping. SOLD

    I’ll accept PayPal. Please add 3% unless gift or friends and family. I have excellent BOI and my eBay has over 150 w 100% positive under mmc4707.

    Reply here or by email or PM. My email is [email protected] or you can call me directly @ 803-420-633six

    I’ll trade any of the tanks I have left for a Cricket, Mutant, Vulcan, FX Wildcat or FX Tarantula. I’m also looking for a couple of scopes…in particular​ a MTC Viper Pro. Or any higher end 3x red dot. If we work something out, I’ll pay Whatever the difference in cash or add a brand new SCBA hose assembly and cash.

    Thank y’all very much.

    Also, I have the actual schematic of the tank from Worthington Industries.

    I put links to pics from my Photobucket. Still not sure how to post the actual pics in the thread.

    That is an SCBA valve, not a DIN

    You will need an SCBA HOSE ASSEMBLY like the ones Joe B sells.

    The main difference between the 2 is that DIN uses a female end on the tank, whereas SCBA uses male threads on the tank. The SCBA threads are also much larger, whereas DIN300 (standard DIN connection) has much more, finer threads. They will both work to fill an airgun it just requires different adapters. Most Airgunners use DIN values, so they tend to be cheaper than SCBA adapters. They both do the same job, just slightly differently.

    In addition, DIN300 fittings are (typically) not rated high enough for the pressures required to fill a SCBA.

    FYI The valve on that tank is nice and slow when you turn the handle. I will not call it a slow flow valve that is commonly sold at $225 but with this valve you will not need one. When i first used it I was a little creeped out. I turned the handle a few times and nothing was happening. so I closed it back then went to try again and a few additional turns it began to fill. Not so slow that its bad just a nice steady flow. I love the valve.

    Buying a hose setup for an SCBA vs a DIN-300 is about the same cost from JoeB but the one comment I will share is that not all Dive shops have the adapter for the SCBA to fill the tank. Some do and some don’t so what you may end up having to do is buy/build a filling adapter. I built one with a Hand tight SCBA fitting to a coupler to a foster fitting since I know my shop fills paintball they are foster friendly. I bought my pieces from a place called North Shore Compressor & Machine. The hand tights are usually out of stock so call and pay so you get them when they do come into stock. They are always sold out from my XP.

    Pieces I bought:

    $37.50 P/N F-06151 CGA 347 Hand Nut & Nipple
    $2.60   P/N F-01116 1/4 FNTP x 1/8 FNPT Coupler
    $11.54 P/N F-08111 PB Quick Disconnect Nipple

    FYI They do also sell various hose assemblies and things of interest but building your own is always cheaper.

    With Zero pressure in the tanks it may be prudent to ensure there is not any moisture inside the tanks. They are wet in the pictures so if those valves arent closed and they are outside.. they will need to be dried out somehow. My dive shop may even want to inspect the inside since there is zero pressure. I’m not sure. Call your dive or fill shops as they are all a little picky in their own ways,

    Hope this helps.

    Hey Jacklegs,
    I didn’t see a stamp and no one has mentioned it, so I assume that all the tanks have had a recent “hydrostatic test” (DOT requirement) which is normally good for 5 years? Are all the test dates the same (done in bulk) or does each tank have a different test date stamp on it?
    Thanks for your time…

    Oh My Gosh, my bad! Clearly, I wasn’t thinking…I have an older 2010 tank and I’m old myself, so please forgive me…
    Thank you so much for the information and I may take you up on the offer…that’s a great price!
    Best regards and thank you!
