Same, my Mag runs great on my Pure Energy 45/45. Just a Classic Valve with single trigger though, so it's not like I'm going to get shootdown :).

omg aqua it's going to blow up!!! don't leave it in your room at night or you won't wake up one day. . .

I'm getting a tank with a centerflag 201 for my bday! I'm so excite. It does 1k psi, it's adjustable, and on/off. And stainless steel. Yeeeeeah.

BTW RT valves give you more RT around 950 psi. Some say the higher the better, but I think I read somewhere that above 1100 I think it was, the RT doesn't get any faster, just a harder trigger pull.

My HPA tank never sleeps anywhere near me. They still freak teh poo out of me. It's currently in the car, but it's usually on the opposite side of my desk, with 2 walls of 2" thick wood and some textbooks guarding me.

Freaky butt HPA tank is just waiting to kill me, I know it :(

I am still ranting, do you comprehend how freaking insane that thing is? Take any 1" by 1" segment of the tank, inside. There is the equvialent of 2.5 tons of weight on that tiny freaking segment. Do you really trust that fiber wrapped metal junk with 2.5 TONS?

if thats the one your buying id look for a dif. one the price seems high for a tank with an 05 hydro date, that you will need to pay $40 next year to have re-hydro tested. you can get new 48/30's for around $65


aqua no need to wory about the tanks gettin ya, thats what burst disks are for. however they will scare the crap out of ya when they blow!

High pressure, though I have been able to run mags as low as 450 PSI before(650 works better)
