I'm with playdoh on this one. Straight trade sounds fair to me.

In Topic: New setup help

I got my first carbon tank in a package with a used Ego7 ($300) the tank had been rehydroed the year before, so it still had plenty of life left. Last year I traded that tank (68/45 pure energy) with my buddy for his 50/45 ninja (similar time left on hydro). No problems with either other than some rust on the ninja bonnet but that was my fault (wrapped it in my shemagh after a big game and left it for too long, damp and salty environment will definitely promote rust, lol)


Even if you get a used carbon tank that is out of hydro for $60-70, you can rehydro it for $20-30 and wind up with a great tank for $100 or less, which is definitely worth it.

I believe those are just different trigger types which comes down to personal preference. Between those 2 I would probably choose the Blck and brass one with the slide frame, but that's just my preference.

I have never heard anyone sya ANYTHING bad about an automag, so I'd definitely keep those in mind.


The CCI Phantom is one of those markers that made it to my 'must possess at some point' list (back bottle, stock class 10 round feed, ghost ring, black/blue acid wash)

There are so many customized autocockers out there you may find one that suits you.


I recently watched a Black/bronze Sanchez SM-1 pass by on the Mcarter-Brown forums for $380. I cried a little when it sold before I could snatch it up.



I would strongly advise that you join the mcb forums and watch th mech and pump bst. You'll find something to suit your fancy.

In Topic: Milsig MK3 48/3000 hpa tank for a butt stock will it work?

In a direct answer, I think you should be fine.


Talking more about your actual use; are you planning to run magfed or hopper?


If you're running magfed then a 13/3000 will likely be enough as it gets you 5 or 6 mags typically, and you probably won't be carrying more than that. If you're running hopper fed then I think you are looking at a pretty heavy setup with the 48 and that much paint. The mk3 is not a particularly light gun, but it was designed to go with either the small tank or a air through stock, in which case it is tolerable.
