I got a supermaxx 5000, which is cool, but once I opened it up I saw that the tank was shot couldn't hold air.

So my question is what is a good replacement tank?
Like fits well, all that, would it be best for me to buy another sm 5k tank or use something different? If you have a sm5k tank that your willing to part with pm me

You could try sealing the leak.

Do you know where it's coming from?

If you're willing to shell out a bit of money you could always try to contract roboman for an aluminum 5k tank. I thought I saw one of his posts about them a while back, but I'm not really sure.

I contacted him and I dont mind paying the money its just he said it would take quite some time like up to a month.

I've opened a 5K tank before. It is by far the most difficult tank I have ever dealt with although most of it was probably due to how the previous owner cut it. I assume you have opened up your blaster and have the tank. When you shake it, does it rattle? The seal is a bathtub plug looking thing stuck on a hook instead of a rubber washer on the end of the metal shaft like the AT#K series. Usually the plastic "U" part of the seal the metal hook goes through snaps so nothing happens when you pull the trigger. Also the pump check valve can go bad so make sure you try a known working pump. Anyways, I know that on first glance it might look like a good idea to cut right along the seam but if you do then you will have no way to reinforce the joint when you try to glue it back together again. Cut above or below and leave enough room for electrical tape. When you superglue it back together, quickly and tightly wrap the electrical tape around the joint applying superglue as you go. The force of the tape will help center the halves and when dried it will be stronger than the original plastic itself.

I had an at4k tank that sounds like it had the same problem as your supermaxx 5k tank. The seal wasn't dislodged, but the pin and seal assembly refused to move forward after firing. I fixed it by applying silicone grease on the firing pin while it was pulled back and on the front sealing part. It's been working great for months now.

Just add lube, it sounds like the firing pin might be sticking.
