getting back into the sport after a while out and have got all the old kit out the loft that I didn't sell when I left.

I still have a air bottle by pro toyz which was last tested in 2003. The FIN date on it is 2018/04.

Now this bottle hasn't seen any pressure in 10 years. Been sat in the loft for that time and has experienced a few house moves. That being said it hasn't been knocked around etc

So obviously it would save some money if I could get it tested and reuse it however safety first and that kind of pressure isn't worth the money saved.

So nothing to worry about? Or should I just scrap it and buy a new tank?

I believe the most stressful part for bottles is the quick filling with high pressure.
So, if it was stored well and safe, there is probably not too much to worry about,
Having said that, I would buy a new tank if your intention is to get back into the sport.
