Anyone know what pressure it can take ? I was planning to use it in a pneumatic gun wit a regulator, if I can find one somewhere.

If it were me I’d just go to my local paintball shop and ask them.
If that’s not an option for you than try googleing it.

Well, it comes filled at 800-900 PSI... and I think they have a burstdisk on them that'll fail at 1100 psi (or something like that). So I think that's your answear.

How on earth do you people reach those kinds of pressures? Do you make your own pumps because if you do I would really like to see plans for such a pump.

There is a wild thing, Very rare called Co2 :wink: Joking. Some people may use Co2 or Brian the Brain invented a high pressure pump,it can go up to 30BARS I think. There is really no need to go to pressures that high.

I have built a high pressure pump. It is actually very easy. All the parts are readily available.
