I'm thinking about semi-retiring my Hill hand pump and get a carbon fiber tank for my newly acquired .22 S410ERB. Not sure where I can get it filled, what the cost is for each fill and how many refills I can get out of a 88 tank, and of a 44 tank. Work in Long Beach, and wouldn't mind drive a little once a while. Thanks for any tips! Happy shooting!

    Well the carbon fiber tank will give you plenty of fills at 4000 psi...Smiley on your AA. And if you live or work in Long Beach I am sure you will not have a problem finding a Scuba Shop near...Smiley

    I just browsed Air Source website, and am not sure about the type of gas/tank that I need. Could you elaborate? Thanks so much. SoCalFan

    Have you already bought/own a tank? If not you'll have to decide which tank to buy, steel, aluminium or carbon fiber. Each has it's pros and cons.

    I'm leaning towards a CF tank for its light weight and higher number of refills (how many refills typically for an 88"?) thanks ! Again, I'm open to any good advice...

    Nathan, I called Air Source in Long Beach, and got quoted for about $38.00 for a fill ( 80CF 4500PSI). Is that a typically charged price? I was thinking it's about $5-10...
