I have to recommend a CO2 setup, one could probably be had for around $40, including a regulator.

I have a few spares that I could use, but then it's more electronics that I have no clue how to use.

Basically, you'd need to get a little creative.

You'd need This fitting, this reg, and maybe this remote line

Gosh, that's more than I thought... Then you need a tank... Even air tanks are somewhat reasonable. and can be larger. Or just go with CO2


Hell, I might just buy that 62 cu in tank myself...

EDIT: This fitting or this one might be better.


I forget if this is a BBMG, but if so, this is only like $12, or $20 with a 20oz tank.

Should be good enough.

Wow, I feel like jack now, with all the links...

Thats a little too much for me... but don't some of those tanks you linked come with regs? Thats what it said in the title but I don't know enough about paintball and stuff.

They regulate the ~3000 PSI in the tank down to around 800-900 PSI.

Still a little much for playing airsoft.

You might try these, though
