Whats the best bottle to go for size/economy wise, also where would be the cheapest place to buy one for a scrooge like me :blink::icon_eek:

depends on the size of your air cylinder. the most economical is a 300bar and the bigger the better :blink: but you need to make sure you can get them filled. size wise a 10 ltrmaybe a bit bigger if your strong enuf.

i got one of ebay but not a 300bar. think it was 40quid and postage at around £20 but it didnt have all the fittings for air rifles or any test.

Are you looking for new or 2nd hand?

And what rifle are you going to fill?

Either Chris (new/secondhand), been looking and I would prefer the 300bar setup, my rifle is a AAS410K...

Check your local dive shop/refilling station to see whether they will fill a bottle to 300bar. Some do some don't and it could end up being a real ballache travelling to one that can. 232bar will be alright on an S410.

 

If you buy new you'll get all the bells, whistles and adaptors to fill the rifle plus the bottle will have a 5year test on it providing it's not going to double as a scuba tank. At least you know it's not been mistreated. You're looking at around the £130 mark for a 232 and about £150 for a 300 for a 3litre which you might get half a dozen to a dozen fills out of. New of course. 2nd hand will come in much cheaper. :blink:
