Pcp? what is this pcp? I don't think you are talking about the drug.

Steel or aluminium. The cylinder on my Daystate Mk.3 takes at least 230 bar (around 3,400 psi)

Pcp? what is this pcp? I don't think you are talking about the drug.


Pre-charged pneumatic -> an airgun that uses compressed gas from a reservoir to function, much like a pneumatic spudgun.

if ya get the right fitting and so forth yes you could use that much pressure(regulated) not many home-job valves hold up to that much abuse.

pcp tanks on hightech airguns are able to handle 250 bar ( 3600 psi ). I don't know your skill around pneumatics however if a homemade pcp tank explodes and a very little piece of shrapnel hit's you... It won't be nice.

don't see why you couldn't use one....but, at this stage of difficulty, you're better off buying a cheap PCP and modding it. you'll just ave to work on the hammer valve, and the barrel.
