Other than compatability issues with the classic RT compared to the RT pro, Whats the advantages/disadvantages in getting the classic RT over an RT pro?
Also, I am not a speedball player, nor do I tend to shoot more than a bag or two on a full day of play. I am getting back into pump, and slower markers. But The RT is something I've wanted for a while. I will not tune this marker for speed, just to fire reliably and give that little bit of umph when needed.
The reason I am reluctant on the switch to HPA is startup costs. and there is one place that is "local" to fill it. I am looking into a smaller 13ci or so aluminum HPA tank, and a 68-4500 steel tank. I know wevo carries the smaller CI tanks, any leads on used ones?

You wont be able to get a 68/45 steel tank, the steel ones only come rated 3000 psi. You would have to go fiber wrapped to get the 4500psi. As for getting a used tank somewhere, for the bigger tank I would look at PBN. As much as I hate to refer anyone there, especially anyone from here, it seems you can find in hydro 68/45 tanks for $100 or less.

I would prefer to stay away from pbn and with a steel tank. Its not that I dont trust a fiber tank, but I trust a steel tank more, they are normally flat bottom, cheaper, and I dont mind the added weight.

Watch the local dive shops for a cheap scuba tank. I use one to fill my HPA tanks, and it has more than paid for itself over the years. I also use those same HPA tanks when I am doing gun repairs and setups.

The Classic RTs are great guns, and the valve works real well. It's a Mag, what would you expect? You can find them relatively cheap ($100-$150) since they are not as popular due to blocky looks and weight.

Good luck,


Walker

Not sure if the flat bottom thing is for comfort when shouldering or part of the safety thing, but rounded cylinders are stronger than flat bottomed ones, if you were to compare otherwise identical cylinders (ie: same volume/material)


For non fiber tanks, PMI has a 68/3k that goes for around 65 new, and ACI has a nice little 47/3k for around 75

Also, this is what Palmer's thinks about AutoMags. For those of you who don't want to read the page, the long and short of it is that Palmer's doesn't feel that AutoMags *NEED* any sort of add-ons or improvements, but if you really want it, they'll find something they can do to it.

Hey Rap, I've got a Z-griped Classic RT you can check out next time I'm in canton. I also have a Y-grip on my other mag if you wanna look at that to.

They are a little heavy, but as you said your not worried about the weight issues. The best part is walking onto a field and having every kid with a ION ask wow what kinda gun is that lol.
