Hello , for my next spudgun (my first pneumatic one) i need a way to fill the chamber while being in forest (im doing spudgun secretly and i cant fire in my garden ^^).
so i was thinking about of one these cheap portable compressor but i dont think i will be able to fill a chamber at 200 psi more than one or 2 times...

The portable jumper packs with built in compressors seem to last a while, they are cheep on ebay.

You can use a bike tire pump, the manual kind.

since he wants to fire semi auto, pumping every time like on the PPK, is not an option...
you could make a project bo with some batteries wired both parralels and series, you'd get twice the voltage and twice the current with four bateries....think about that.in that case your little 12V compressor could do the job

A car battery (fully charged, standered 650 cold cranking amps), will last aproximently 20 minutes straight running.
