That is unfortunate. I'm not even seeing them on their site anymore. It's starting to look like these tanks are turning into unicorns.

10ci in stock below. Size wise next to a 13ci there just doesn't seem to be a huge advantage though. Would rather get a factory produced 13ci and save some money I think.

Yeah. At that size, you're better off getting the 13 ci and calling it a day.

I've bought and used one of these for a while now. Good product if you go with it...

Is that 10ci able to fit in 2in stocks? If so then that may be the way to go for me.

The one I use often the paint seems to flake off easy. They are not powder coated or Ano seems like they are just painted. I'm going to send mine out for Cerakote.

Here are images of the 9ci and 10ci tanks side by side.
They have the same diameter. The 10ci tank is about half an inch longer.
With regs on, they weigh almost the same. The 9ci tank registers 1 pound on my kitchen scale and the 10ci tank is just over a pound. I tried putting them on my powder scale for a super precise readout, but the tanks were too heavy for that scale. Although this difference could be more in the difference in weight of the regulators.

I have an old Brass Eagle buttstock that was made for, I think, a 9oz co2 tank that fits on the tanks just right.

Between the two, I like the 10ci tank better because I prefer the glossy paint over the matte of the 9ci. I also like the extra half an inch in length because it fits into the beer coozie that I use as a tank cover better.

If you have a 13ci tank already, there's no point in shaving off an inch or an inch and a half, unless you really care that much. You can see the 13ci tank compared to a 10ci tank here: 10 Ci TC / DOT Air tank | MILSIG DIRECT MagFed Paintball

When I bought the 9ci tank, Maxtact told me that 9ci is the smallest tank for which it is possible to get DOT/safety certifications for, so if you absolutely must have the smallest tank, then reach out to the Maxtact guy. But honestly, I often question why I bother to get the 9ci or 10ci tank. It's only because I have the disposable income to do so and I like being the only guy at the PB field with gear that no one else has.

Where can I get a 10ci HPA tank at though?

I see the link you posted but it doesn’t specific HPA or not. Just want to be sure.
