I've discovered that I often visit the state of confusion, and I know my way around pretty well.

tank arrived about a week ago...still getting used to using it to fill my rifle...the valve is a little difficult to crack open slowly...I have filled the tank twice so far and it seems to open a little easier..maybe that is me..so far so good...at least don't have to pump by hand anymore and the little compressor is working fine... 8)

There is no import restrictions on tanks, you just wont be able to get it filled unless you have it tested(around $150),or you have your own compressor.I have been using the yong heng compressor for a while with no issues, when I purchased it from aliexpress I also purchased a complete head/piston and extra second stage seals, but after several hours use a head inspection has shown no major wear.I do change the oil every 1.5 hours use with fuchs hydraulic 46 oil.I use a acecare 3l carbon wraped tank which takes around 15mins to top up to 4500psi, and I get around 14 fills in my fx wildcat (filling from 150bar to 210).
