Things I liked:

The large volume of compressed air insures the user of many hours of shooting. The size isn't overwhelming nor is the weight. A carry sling made from tough canvas is easily made and makes transporting the tank with ease. Design and engineering of the valves is excellent and of highest quality. My first use went smoothly and without effort. Highly recommended! Do no use the 90 cc tank because you will get far more refills with this tank.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing. An optional carry sling would be nice for purchase.

What others should know:

Excellent quality and does everything as advertised.

Things I liked:

Earlier I reported I had sent this tank to a Crosman repair station about 60 miles from my home. About 2 weeks later it was returned to me. I tried to fill it to 4400 psi but could only achieve 3100 psi. Since then the tank has lost some pressure.

Things I would have changed:

I guess this website must stock this tank regardless of its faults. Sad state of affairs.

What others should know:

Please look elsewhere for a tank. This website normally stocks great gear and I have purchased over $1,500 in merchandise over the past 2 years from them. So I like, and trust, them, OK? I am not trashing the website, just the tank.

    Things I liked:

    Nice size. The 74cuft was plenty of air for me. The micro hose regulates the fill time so you do not have to worry about filling your gun too quickly. Great tank for the price.

    Things I would have changed:

    Tank should include a male to male adapter.

    What others should know:

    The hose does not have a quick detach. So you will need to buy a male to male adapter for the hose to fill the tank.

    Things I liked:

    Very light and easy to use.

    Things I would have changed:

    An attachment that creates a flat bottom. It's not ideal to have a pressurized canister that can't support itself. I know you can buy an attachment, but it would be ideal to have a display of the internal pressure. The thing costs over $500 after all.

    What others should know:

    I had it filled by my local paintball facility. Cost about $20 - which I found very reasonable. He said it made him a bit nervous because it makes a lot of creaking noise, etc...which I assume is normal for carbon fiber.

    Things I would have changed:

    The date on the tank is 2020 thats 2years old so guess I only can have it filled for three years by some one else that is a real bummer, not happy.

    What others should know:

    Be careful its a role of the dice on hydrostat date . Hopefully you do better than me

    Things I liked:

    Fast and silent PCP re-charging.

    Things I would have changed:

    My tank was already 19 months into the 15 year service life when received. Contacted Pyramyd; they gave me an account credit (bullseye bucks) to compensate for that.

    What others should know:

    Soooo glad I went with a tank instead of a small compressor and air/oil separator. So convenient! Worth the trips to the dive shop for tank refills, over the noise, re-charge time and maintenance of a compressor.

    Things I liked:

    The tank appears to be well built, and the valve operates smoothly. PA was extremely responsive in replacing the malfunctioning Foster fitting that came with the tank.

    Things I would have changed:

    I changed the gauge to this one that I found on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192831726337?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 The gauge that it comes with is not liquid filled and is in Bars. I also added a spring to the air line so that it does not get kinked when filling my rifles.

    What others should know:

    The Foster fitting supplied with the tank was extremely hard to get on and off. I contacted PA and they send me a replacement. When replacing the unit, I found the one that came on the tank did not have the restrictor screw that was supplied with the new unit. I think this is might be what slows the airflow down so you don't damage your regulators when filling you rifle. I recommend anyone buying one of these to remove the Foster fitting and insure the restrictor is installed.

    Things I liked:

    The freedom of being able to go into the woods and have air to refill when needed

    Things I would have changed:

    I would rather see PSI instead of Bar. I will be changing out the reg to a two gauge system so I can see bottle PSI and Line PSI

    What others should know:

    This is a must have for anyone with a PCP . Be careful when opening the valve to fill your rifle the first couple of times until you see how fast the air comes out. A slight move on the valve rushes air to your rifle. Creep it open

    Things I liked:

    Finally getting the product .....even though it was a 6.8 L tank which holds approx. 66 cu. ft. of air for around $300 and I was charged for a $550 74 cu. ft. air tank!

    Things I would have changed:

    Getting the scuba tank I PAID for!

    What others should know:

    After receiving the wrong tank the first time, I called customer service who looked up the shipping records and said it shows I was sent the wrong item....it showed I was sent an air compressor(I received a 6.8 L tank)...sent it back and in return was sent back the same 6.8L tank and not the 74 cu. ft. tank....figured I got screwed out of $250(the price difference between the two thanks) and chalked it up to "lesson learned"!!!

    Things I liked:

    I have been diving for years and used my dive tank to fill my PCP. Bought this and it is incredibly light when filled. I am now using my dive tank to fill my PCP to 3000 psi and then this to top it off the rest of the way.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    Pay the extra $100 and get the next size up.

    Things I liked:

    The valve that you put on this tank is a piece of junk

    Things I would have changed:

    This is my second tank that I purchased from you folks I am 100% happy with the first one the second one has a valve that is junk. The on off valve is extremely hard to work to the point that it has false stop. If you want to slow fill your air rifle it is almost impossible to do with this valve to the point I think its dangerous. My first tank had a psi and the bar gauge this one just has a bar gauge which is unacceptable

    What others should know:

    Your company is a disaster to try and get any help from the tech that I spoke with was working from home and said the guys in the tank division arent allowed to talk to people REALLY! I need your company to replace this valve but it is impossible to speak with someone that knows what they are doing please contact me and help me resolve this issue_

    Wish I had purchased earlier great product I own a portable compressor but this tank makes filling my guns much faster especially when target shooting

    Things I would have changed:

    Which gauge was in psi instead of bar but still a great product

    What others should know:

    Before you purchase make sure there is a scuba shop or other place that can fill thats not far from where u live you may also want to purchase the air Venturi double male fitting

    The accessibility in being able to fill my gun over and over without having to use a compressor.

    Things I would have changed:

    Even though I bought this item on sale it's always the cost that makes people pause.

    What others should know:

    If you want to eliminate the headache of limiting your shooting time then this item is a must-have, cost not withstanding.

    Things I liked:

    The 74 CF tank is the perfect size! Very light and easy to handle. This tank turned my hour with one rifle at the range into a day at the rage with two rifles! A must for zeroing and just extending your shooting time without trips back to your compressor.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would change the gauge to display both Bar and PSI. Similar to the Air Venturi gauges used on their Air Rifles. The majority of U.S. Airgunners and SCUBA divers prefer using Imperial or PSI not Metric or Bar.

    What others should know:

    If you have been hand pumping or are not used to having your own air compressor or fill station, I suggest you quadruple your normal order of ammo. Your shooting time and frequency are about to increase exponentially.

    Sorry Im old fashioned ... I would prefer the gauge was in pounds and not bars. Also an ascessory stand so the bottle could be stood upright would be nice.
