Great prices here: Aluminum Co2 Cylinders

Free shipping on tanks too, apparently.

Anyone see any reason why these aren't a great deal?

I'm looking at either a 5 or 10 pound tank.

Looks like the one I have (5lb). I do not see a reason to stop them from working.

Yeah, they look fine to me too, the prices just seemed too good. I was wondering if there was something I was overlooking.

Turns out their shipping cost calculator doesn't work until you're at the "place order" screen. It says $0.00 shipping until then.

Still pretty good prices, just not too good to be true without free shipping.

Looks like a damn good price on a big tank. Get the 20# tank and give us a review.

I ordered a 10 pound tank (empty). Shipping was $11. Still, $80 for a brand new aluminum 10 pound tank I thought was very good.

I'll let you know how it is when it arrives.

I believe this is where I got my tank a little over a year ago.

Just received my 10 pound tank. It's perfect. Manufactured by Hy-Mark Cylinders, if that means anything to anyone.

Great deal and shipped fast too.

I just ordered a Micromatic regulator, so my keezer will be in business soon! Well, as soon as I build the collar. Eh, and get a temp controller. And brew some more beer...
