where to buy Carbon Tanks

I have been looking at a couple of my older 4500 psi HPA tanks and they are now beyond their 15 year life span. I would like to keep and use the Apocalypse and Flatline regs but replace the tanks. Unfortunately I have not seen just tanks for sale lately. Any suggestions where to buy just the tank?

Crossfire sells bottles only, both 45ci and 68ci.

Welcome to Crossfire Inc.

Give Ninja a call. They should be able to sell the bottle, but don't quote me on that.

hmmm...you could always buy the complete system and swap the regs out. Could always look for a compressed air (oxygen tank for hospitals) that will take the correct reg threads.

Buy a complete system and sell the reg. The companies like ninja get slight deals on the tanks...you basically get the reg for free. Buy a ninja and the reg will sell easy for 30 bucks or so..

Go with a newer used tank.

Now that is the most depressing news of all. I was hoping for a greater savings when picking up an expensive 4500 tank.

Yeah I gave up looking a few months ago. Crossfire has them but cost about the same for tank + reg. So I picked up 2 new ninja's and sold one reg off to help off set the cost and I have a spare reg for just in case.
