I've never heard of a high pressure pimp before :D
That seems like it would be nice, but I'm not sure I would be willing to pay $2000 for it.

How about this three stage? It's less money eating than that.http://www.pyramydair.com/cgi-bin/accessory.pl?accessory_id=1991

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Hats off to hubb for reading my mind, get off my wavelength!

lolol :D

As to the pump, it would be an idea buy if say 20 members of ain airgun club chipped in a hundred bucks each, but as an individual purchase it's a bit steep.

@JSR: I'd say it's a little less than perfect for an air rifle club. In an ideal world, you'd want a compressor that would be up to filling 300 bar HPA bottles - that would be fine for a rifle, but not much more.

Precisely, it doesn't mean that no one would have bottles, but when using the club range it means that you don't have to lug a heavy cylinder around with you if all you're doing is topping up your rifle ;)

Well it's about 2/5 the price of a pump for refilling scuba tanks which is something... But for a spudding accessory that's some serious dough to be parting with.

Considering that high pressures in the 750 psi range can be obtained with a hand pump built for next to nothing, it would be a convenient facility but certainly not for those on a student budget, which is a category most spudders would fit into.

Which is my problem... too many complex and expensive ideas.

If only I had a heap of money and Larda's machine shop... sigh.
