Need Some Pump Tank Opinions

I tried out a 13 ci tank for my pump gun. It was too small. I just bought a 22ci tank for my pump gun and it's longer than my 68/4500 long bottle. Is there a tank size that's between "barely there" and "waaaayyyy too big"? I heard rumors of a 17 ci bottle. Does anyone know if those are true? Any ideas on what I can do? I just want a lightweight compressed air bottle that is roughly the length of a 68 cubic inch tank.

Ninja's 45/45 Dura is just slightly shorter then their 68/45. I find it's the perfect pump tank.

That seems to be the general consensus. I might just have to break down and pick one up. Looking to shed some weight on the overall setup anyway.

17 ci tanks are sold by rap4 I believe. Right between the 22 and 13 in length.

I bought one of the Rap4 tanks from their ebay store. I don't know how long a 68ci bottle is but the rap4 is 11 inches long with the reg. I like it because it is just a tad longer than the 13's.

Has anyone tried a drop with a 22 ci tank? Maybe that's not enough, or it's too high.

It's funny how much difference an inch makes.

alternatively, you could use a t-stock from LAPCO with a 13/3000. Set the stock where you want.
