Get a 20oz, some stainless braid and two on/off ASAs. It's very easy to fill 3.5oz tanks yourself. You just need to either freeze the 3.5 or chill it by venting co2.

I had to send my cocker away to get time.

the only local shop I have here is all about the "Tippmann"

They said they wont carry rotors because they feel like they will break easily....

I run my rotor through everything, and man bets hopper ever.

Why would you need to chill it? And when? Before or after filling it? Sorry for the noob questions, just curious. I have never filled a CO2 tank myself and can't really recall someone doing it when filling one at the fields.

Chill it before. It makes it a lot easier to fill the tank. Most fields fill tanks a little and then vent them before actually filling them full.

If the tank isn't cold, then the co2 will expand and over pressurize inside the tank, which isn't usually dangerous, it just keeps the tank from filling.

The colder the tank is to start, the easier it is to get it to fill with liquid co2.

I usually try and have my 3.5oz tanks filled before I go to any field. I've had problems getting proper fills in shops and fields.

Because 2000psi is safer than 3000psi.

Hey russc about how many fills would you say you from a 20oz with chilling factored in?
