    Hey all, just wondering if anyone has an idea of how much the titan tank can take in terms of PSI? I'm planning a fairly complex home-made involving a compressor and a pressure cut-off switch, so I'll need to know just how far I can push it without breaking it. I'm not planning on reinforcing the tank.

    If all else fails I'll get a psi gauge and test it myself, but I thought I'd check here first.

    Cheers in advance!

    I'm not sure, however my friend did push his Titan tank up to 150PSI, however, it was almost impossible to pull the trigger.

    Thanks for the info!

    That's kind of amazing, I had no idea they could take that much. I've pulled the air assembly (tank, pump, etc.) out of the shell today so on Friday I'll buy a gauge and do a test of what it takes to activate the OPV. I'll make 150psi my "holy guacamole" figure and work out what pressure I'll want/need based on the difference between them.
    If it makes any difference to what people can tell me the one tank will be powering two maverick barrels (i.e. firing 12 darts at once) over a relatively short distance.

    I'll post the stock OPV limit when I test it.

    Cheers

    EDIT:

    Well, that was difficult. That's what I get for cheaping out on a pressure gauge that doesn't actually clamp on to fittings. I managed to get the OPV limit for the stock titan tank however, which was 44psi, or 3.1kg/sqcm.
