Would this affect it in any way shap or form? It's less than 2mm the mark and it's more of a deep scratch but as this is a preasurised 200bar cylinder would it still be okay and am I worrying over nothing? It still remains empty and still hasn't had a fill so before I do so I just wanted to make sure it's not going to crack/ rupture or fracture.. I highly doubt this but after the unfortunate GinB insident I want total piece of mind

Many thanks
Cylinders are usually pretty thick walled tube but can be a dangerous thing to play with just recently the main man from ginb spent a little time in hospital after a cyloiinder blew up on him if your unsure have it checked by hull cartridge. at minimum put something on it to stop it rusting if its a steel tube
