20 Oz c02 tank + Palmer's reg. Plenty of air for small calibers, but if ever i build anything bigger, i'll probably need something else.

I also got your average cheap 110psi 120V compressor.

try at any junkyard.... I've seen a couple places where they have them.... I assume that you should have better luck than all those non-european guys becasue europe is generally not as strict as far as freon is concerned....

I've found out that they will handle you almost every stuff for free if you bring them some alcohol :D though I am not sure if they are like that in other places than Poland :roll:

one 2hp 130psi compressor with a huge tank (slow to empty and fill) that is on my hybrid shooting range, one that is outside our work shop with a swich inside for less noice, 150psi and two big tanks and i think around 5hp
a foot pump, shocky, normal bike pump and a big volume pump (can't find a name)

then i have tons of 300bar argon bottles for the welder that has 150psi regs (i think)

i was planing on making a homemade pump for 800psi but it dies when i now start to loose interest for spudding (that is so sad)

i don't think i will get much more spudding stuff before i get a lathe and can make my guns at home.

My gear
an old firefighter SCBA, currently at 2000psi (though I don't have the fittings to use it at the moment...)
a 2000psi helium tank (though since I don't have a project with helium, and it is a 120lb tank that costs $80 to fill, and about $20 to re-certify its currently empty.)
Fridge compressor, tested up to 600psi (the limit of my gauge,) and it was just starting to slow down.
12v car tire compressor.

Hows that for an arsenal?

oh ya, and if I wanted, I have access to a million and a half very large tanked 150psi compressors, though who needs those when you can get 2000psi?

POLAND_SPUD wrote:Long time ago I had a 12V compressor but it broken down after two weeks or so.. then I switched to a footpump for a week... and finaly I've built a fridge compressor...

so far it works great - it pumps to 500 psi though I mostly use it at 400 psi now

It would be nice to get a normal compressor but these things are too expensive in Poland and I am not satisied with their max pressure

how much time take fridge compressor to fill 1 liter tank up to 500 psi ??

there are different types of firdge compressors and they have different power... mine is 100W (lol sorry not quite sure on that I'll check it tommorow to be sure)

so my compressor will do it in about... hmmm 4 - 5 minutes....

that's not fast when compared with 'normal' compressors but hey it's only 100W of power.. but they are fine for small bore guns.. (guns with chamber volume smaller than 200 cubic cm )

Just a silly 1 gallon compressor for me, plus a bike pump that I never really use...

Might look into getting either regged CO2 or possibly helium, but that'll be awhile until I can get funds...
