Thinking about a bottle upgrade from your current CO2 paintball bottle? The Empire 72ci 3000psi bottle may be the perfect choice for you. This bottle is an inexpensive entry in to compressed air (HPA). While a little on the larger size (just a bit bigger than a 20oz CO2 bottle) this HPA tank will hold enough air to fire about 1,000 shots. You will not need to do anything special to your paintball gun. This bottle screws right into the gun’s ASA and is ready to go. These bottles last 5 years before they need to be tested (just like CO2 bottles). Compressed air will mean that each of your shots will fire at the same speed. Cold weather will not decrease your performance like it does with CO2
