i have done that with some of my cannons before. i made a little adapter to fill the chamber through a schrader. you need to start with one of these and then go to lowes and get fittings to connect it to your chamber via your desired method. i have filled a 2"x42" chamber using 2 of the cartriges then i shot the spent cartriges. i also filled a 3"x6" chamber using one of the cartriges, i believe the latter got up to around 90psi. however im not sure about the first one. i hope that answeres your question.[/url]

Yes it is possible. It is done via a CO2 bike pump usually. Please search next time. It is all over this forum. There is no set pressure it will pump a pneumatic to, Its all to do with the volume of your pneumatics chamber.

Here is the chart that tells you how much PSI you will get for a certain chamber size out of one 12g CO2 powerlet.

And please don't ask how to calculate it.
