still use a mac dev conquest on my viking but that is the only one. Had an air america something or other but gave it to a local shop for testing. I thought mac dev still made a non removable tank but I can't find it on their site.

Doc.
by fixed tank your not talking about the old thermal tanks by chance.

fixed, as in a dedicated tank for only that gun. that tank being for one gun only, so that tank is "fixed" to one gun.

I use my maxflo all the time on 2 different cockers. I will be using my AGD reg on my DSG. My Macdev Conquest is currently being used on my buddies Drag Motercycle (air shifter).

-No, just HPA tanks for the moment. And you mean "Thermo"- that's the brand name of the big handwheel valves.

I remember preferring the old Max Flows, thinking I could have a reg/manifold on each gun (as in, two, maybe three markers back then) and just swap one tank between 'em. That and the fact the Max had a shutoff valve- none of the others did- made it my choice for the longest time. (The fact it was a good, stable reg that didn't need a secondary inline reg was the primary reason I liked it- the rest was just icing on the cake.)

Today, of course, we get the same thing with screw-in tanks; one bottle can be swapped between any number of guns, most good rails have a shutoff of some sort, and most decent markers come with a secondary reg anyway so as long as it flows well enough to keep up, how consistent it is is almost irrelevant.

I used to run a 2nd gen Max FLo on my Retro Valved Minimag a few years ago. Got rid of it cause it was just to big n' bulky, and didn't have a bleed valve on the reg. You could shut it off but you couldn't bleed the valve like something like a CP on/off will do. I ruined a quick disconnect when I 'popped' it off without thinking with air still in my line and valve.

I didn't RT that much anyways so I switched to pre-set tanks and on/offs. Plus with the new Ninja SHP regs, the old adjustables are a little unnecessary to me. I'd rather just have a seperate screw in Ninja SHP tank meant only for RT purposes that I could use easily on any of my mags.
