1. Is 110$ for a 70/4500 carbon a good deal? Includes shipping and tank cover.

2. How do you properly unscrew an HPA tank?

3. If the output pressure is 450 PSI, my markers regulates to about 185 PSI (SP1), will this lead to any drop off or problems?

1. Depends on the brand. A Link would be helpful. But yes, that's a pretty good deal.

2. The same way you unscrew a CO2 tank. Although it's easier if you have an On/Off ASA to get the pressure down in the gun, which allows you to get the tank off easier.

3. What kind of marker are you using? You can run a high pressure or low pressure tank. You're regulator will get the PSI down to what it needs to be no matter what, but knowing your marker would be helpful.

EDIT: Just saw you are using an SP1. I'd recommend going with a high pressure tank, just in case you ever change to a different gun. Just about any gun will work off a HP tank, only a few will use strictly use an LP tank.

Any other questions?

Well, I checked those 2 links, and the first one is a low pressure tank. You do not want to deal with a low pressure tank, unless you own an angel. I don't know what gun you are going to be using it on, but I personally don't think you have an angel. So I would go with that second choice.

For your questions...

1: It depends on the hydro. If there is one year left on it, then no, its not really worth it. But if there is a couple years left, and the tank is in really good condition, then yes, it would be worth it. But in my mind, it would be easier to just own a 68/4500. Its almost the same size, plus there are many out there, so the price is lower on them.

2: Same as any other tank. Untwist it a couple turns, shoot out all the air, then unscrew the tank. Simple.

3: It should not, but I have heard of that problem with low pressure tanks. I would say just get a high pressure tank, then you can use it on any other gun you own, even Tippmanns and Spyders.

I think I will just get the high pressure one. Any more arguments?
