P.s..... I reckon jsr or wyz will have a crack at making one lol.

First, I do enjoy refill my 0.5L paintball tank with my hill mk3 just as exercise :)
Second, while I was in China I ordered a scuba compressor that´s used to refill diving bottles, refills a 10L bottle to 200 bar in 20 min :D no need to connect to another shop compressor and only cost 400 euro. Sadly it weights 39kg, I´m still working on the shipping process :(

Just had a look at some scuba compressor's $2000-$4000,... OUCH!
Do you reckon you could modify a 4 stroke high pressure washer?, some of those
are 2500-3000psi rated and cost about $600 :wink:

Is it hard to pump?, How long does it take to fill a paintball tank?, Do you refill your paintball tank every day? I need to know because I'm considering purchasing a hill mk3 like yours.

Not everyday, but I do refill it a couple times a week. The charging it´s not hard at all and I connected my fridge compressor to the pump so the charging it´s a lot faster specially in the beginning. What I usually do it´s using the pumping as morning exercise and spend the afternoon have fun shooting.
@jonesy42 You won´t be able to buy it, they don´t ship outside China.

@wyz2285 Thanks! Do you use it all up in one afternoon? or how long does it last. And one more question, If you pump a 0.5 liter tank up to 3000 PSI then you regulate that down to 1500 PSI, will that give you 1 liter of 1500 PSI air?

Depending how you use it :roll: for a semi auto at 20 bar it last more than enough but for a bbmg not really.
Yes that would be 1l at 1500 psi.
