I wouldnt trust it. I'd probably take it to get re-hydroed, regardless of the date.

personally i wouldnt use it. But technically if its just cracks in the clear coat and not the fiburs you should be fine. Go to the ninja paintball section in the manufacturers. Theyre really helpful about any tank

Tread with caution; it may be ok but it looks like significant damage to me.

That tank is toast.
Do not try to use it or have it filled.
I've seen that kind of damage before and it takes one hellava hit to cause it.


My question would be why is there a 6K guage right next to a printed rating of 1800?

I don't think it would take an airsmith to figure that one out. I wouldn't test it dude, unless you want to blow your shoulder off.

Burst disc.


that 1800 is the output pressure, so that you don't blow the internals of the marker. There should be another that's 6k if i remember right to make sure the tank doesn't over pressurize.

Why did it take so long to make a Shocker with the spring stock?

I wouldn't trust using that tank. I would rather buy a new tank or call Ninja.
