I bought a cheap tank just to have something to use til i can get a better one, and I got a second tank in the price.
Now the tank itself looks ok, but the regulator looks very abused and it lacks a fill nipple (I bought one to replace), the psi gauge is busted, and one of the screws (think its called a burst disc. not too sure about the english term for it) looks like its been threaded wrong and looks crooked.

Can it be used or is it one for the trash can?

I'll take a pic of it as soon as i find the sync cable for my camera.

Just get a new reg if it looks really beat up.

The tank is the main thing you want ok but a bad reg is still dangerous.

Peace,

well, the tank has about a year left before it needs to be tested again so its not worth the time and effort. (its a 3k steel tank)
I'm fairly sure that the reg is a 4.5k atomic ordinance

If it was a CF 4500psi tank I'd say get a new reg for it, but I wouldn't bother fooling with a 3000psi tank unless you actually intend to use it.

Trash it for sure. That wounds like an accident waiting to happen.

i'm pretty sure it's pure energy, not AO, does it have the little yellow/black nuclear symbol on it with a little balck dot in the middle?
that would be PE

pics would help

if the reg is really beet up then no smart employe will fill the tank, guirella air myth reg would be the best choice, the reg itself is only i think 2/4 an inch tall, and its efficet as hell.
heres alink and right now there only $75. i think i might have to pick another one up. http://guerrillaair.com/store/product_info...products_id=218
