Fiber Wrapped CO2 tank??

A guy on craigslist is selling a "small tank 20 oz fibre tank". From the picture it looks to be white fiber wrapping with a gauge and fill nipple. I emailed him and asked what psi and ci were stated on the label and his reply insists that it is a 20oz CO2 fiber tank.

Ok, now I am quite certain that there is no such thing, and the fill nipple on the neck even makes me think more that he is incorrect. With that said, I do not know everything and learn new things all the time. So, I ask the brain trust here at MCB:

Is there or has there ever been a fiber wrapped CO2 tank?

Yep. You can take any HPA tank and put a CO2 valve on it. It was done back when shoebox shockers were big, inefficient and loved CO2.

Though, if you can see a fill nipple, it's likely that it is an HPA tank. Seeing the regulator would be a sure sign.

Is that an ACI tank? Hp for sure. If the price is right, go for it. Make sure to have the guy take a photo for you of the numbers on the side of the "CO2" tank to look at the PSI and check the hydro too.

Found out more info. His (my ) "20 oz fibre tank" is a Luxer Pure Energy 68 ci 4500 psi tank....I explained to him that I didn't think it was CO2, but compressed air, and that I would buy it from him. The only question now is it 3 or 5 years. I think 5 if I am reading the DOT info correctly.
