Has anyone had any experience with any of these please? from what I can see there are 3 main people who manufacture/supply these

AVM
Military Muck abouts
WTC

They are all around the same price, I haven't seen any up close as yet.

Anyone who has had experience of these, running cost and use of please let me know.

cheers

Stu

It'll work ok on a jeep, there are too many hoses/bottles/regulators etc for one to be used on the ground in any other way than static,

Not cheap to run, but cheaper than blanks, go for small cylinders as big ones are a pain in the arse and if getting an account and the cost of larger cylinders with BOC is a nightmare, horrible company to deal with

They are very cheap to use if you don't go with BOC. Go to Adams gas for the oxygen they have a one off payment and you just pay for the gas when you need it for as long as you want. They do a 9 litre and 2 litre oxygen bottle. As for propane not butane you can get this anywhere, the smaller the bottle the quick the bottle freezes which slows it down from liquid to gas, so bigger bottles are better for propane unless you insulate the cylinder.

Great advice guys, thanks very much indeed, I am still stuck on who to buy off though, I want obviously the best replica together with a loud report and visually impressive when fired.

Cheers
