Blown air out the top of an HPA tank What does it mean?

I'm assuming some seal or o-ring must have blown in the regulator, is that what I should logically conclude?
Since it's just a 47/3000 steel tank...I guess it's time to get another one because to send it in to be rebuilt would cost my about the same as getting a tank in good condition or new off Ebay.
Dang it. I already had two tanks in for hydro, 2 new ones on the way...this was supposed to be the air tank I could use in the meantime.

My guess would be one of the burst disks though. Was the air coming from one of the hexagonal brass (I think they're brass atleast) parts up top? If so, that just needs to be replaced.
Bitches and guns, this is every man's dream. I don't want to go home, where I'm just an ordinary human being...

If it was leaking out of one of these then just replace it.
You bought the brand, not my allegiance.

ya , sometimes that pin can get some junk caught in there that causes it to keep from seating and all you have to do is to take a small screwdriver and depress it fully to blow out the dirt, or paintball chips or whatever and it will re-seat
