As I am getting back into pcp,s again,i’m Not going to go through the headache with minimum fills from aluminium scuba tanks again. I have 4 scuba tanks,and they all need recertification.
The larger carbon fibre at 4500 psi is the only way to go this time.
Does anyone know where one can get them at a good price,or good used ones that still has a good certification left on it? $720.00 for a tank is a little steep,but might have to go that way.

Pretty sure if you look around on AliExpress in China you can get the AceCare tanks with TC certification.... which you need to get them filled or Hydrotested in Canada.... All their tanks are CE certified for the EU.... but that may not mean you can get it filled or tested in Canada.... The prices are a fraction of the US made tanks.... AceCare is a huge manufacturer with a great reputation.... but you may have to pay a bit more for a TC certified tank, even though it's the exact same tank.... :roll:

Thanks Bob!
I will ask the scuba shop in Edmonton here if he will test and fill one of these.
But I will probably bite the bullet and order the one from AGS with the FX airgun ,As I don’t think I can wait that long to shoot the FX :lol: !
By the way,I so enjoy reading and learning from all of your posts and projects you written up here and every where else over the years.
They call Tom Gaylord the guru godfather of airgun! Bah !! He doesn’t hold a candle to you!
Thankyou again 8)
Walter

Didn’t i buy your Condor a few years back? I bought my SCBA tank from rick o’ shea for $100 plus shipping. Still have 4 years remaining, which is fine for me for the price.
