As for sizes of compressed air you have two measurments, cubic inches which comes first and psi which comes second. Common tank sizes in ci are 45, 68, 70, 92. These all vary for different positions, a 68 is about the size of a 20oz c02 but a little fatter. 45 ci tanks are small and quite light and are meant for front men and if you shoot a ton of paint then 92 is the way to go. Here it is mostly preferance.
As for the second measurment of an hpa tank, psi, there are three different types. 3000, 4500, and 5000. Only one tank takes 5000 at the moment, and that is the evil scion, few places fill them and they are expensive so don't worry about em. The higher the psi in your tank the more shots you get for the tank. 3000psi tanks are limited to being steel tanks, which are extremly heavy and don't hold alot of shots. 4500psi tanks are always carbon fiber tanks and are much much lighter than steel and hold alot more shots. Some 3000psi tanks are carbon fiber but there aren't many. personally I wpuld getn the carbon fiber tank just because it is lighter and more comfortable imo.
and as for the new reg, yes I heard they suck too and everyone tells me that the cp reg is good so I would look into buying one of them.

Stock reg is good for drop off, but as for keeping the pressure at all times it is not great for. Plus when you over haul them the parts in them are cheap. So it wears out really fast. I would get a new one in a few months
