I'm a budget newbie looking to just avoid co2 and grab an hpa tank...

 

I found a MacDev 45/4500 on eBay for $85 (was just rehydroed and is good for 5 more years). I also found a Guerilla Air Pro P3 48/3000 brand new round tank for $55. Any advice on which tank would be better off for a newbie running a Tippmann Salvo w/ a 20oz co2 tank? Thanks a lot!

I would go with the macdev tank. The carbon fiber construction will be lighter and will support you through more playing styles than the 48/3000.

Are you butthurt? Rumproasted? Asscinerated? Tushie tattered? Booty bombed? Colon Crucified? Posteriorpwned?

Yeah if you can get a used carbon fiber go with that. I made the mistake of getting a steelie when I should have spent the extra on a carbon. They last way longer, are lighter, and have a much higher shot count. Ultimately, more bang for your buck. However, I have no experience with the MacDev tanks. Also I would buy local just so you can test it out. You never know with eBay.

The goriila 48/3000 is only like $35 on ANS but I would skip it and just get a carbon fiber 4500 tank, do what ever you have to, get a used one idk. Gray ghost Ninja is $150 new thats what I would do.

Looking at a Crossfire Nitro Peanut 70/4500 for $65 used but with only 1.5 years left on its hydro date..good deal? How much does it usually cost to get those tanks tested?

Don't use CO2.
