I have seen covers for the 17s. I just lightened the trigger on the P-Rod but only turned the back wheel. I am surprised to hear the sear broke and that it was pot metal.VarmintAirs Pigmee is about the same size I think. Looks like maybe an Air Hog cover. A 90 cu in tank holds 16 cu ft and isnt too far off.http://varmintair.ty...blog/air-tanks/
To bad my P-Rod is out of commission right now (dang sear broke (sear is made of cheap pot metal!)) or I wouldn't have to worry about fills because I would use the P-Rod instead of the M-Rod. Oh well, in a couple of weeks the replacement sear will arrive and I'll get the P-Rod all fixed back up.The main problem I'm finding is that I can't find anyone that manufactures a cover for this size tank. I'll have to keep looking.

Where did you see the covers Brant? I really want to protect this thing to keep it in the best condition possible and keep it safe.Yeah, I have lightened the P-Rod trigger as far as I can by turning that wheel back too. As far as the sear material goes, I'm pretty sure it is pot metal or something similar. It is extremely light and feels like if you had a pair of pliers in each hand that you could grip it and snap it like an oreo cookie. Anyway, here's a couple of photos of the broken sear.

It seems well constructed and should last as long as the tank... I hope.
Oh, and concerning the P-Rod's trigger sear, I found out that it is called "Sintered" steel. It is a process with which they take various powdered metals and put them into a mold and heat them at high temps to get them to "fuse" together. Regardless... still feels cheap and brittle.

Sintering like turbines? Dont know much about it for this stuff. I thought it was supposed to be strong.
