air pumps

Unread postAuthor: evileye250 » Sun Mar 19, 2006 6:01 pm

what kind of air pump do you use? i have just been pumping it with a bad tire pump. it only goes up to 55 psi. i have a compressor but its broken and will be fixed in the summer. i may get a foot pump or maybe a electric one but all of them only hook up to 12v. car adaptors. i want one thats some what portable and goes up to at least 90 psi. just wanted to know what you guys use.

Fox Shox Bike Pump. Very small, lightweight and goes to 300psi. Only $30 too so it's pretty sweet gadget to have.

Is that a mountain bike shock pump Talon?because if it is that will work very well,will require a few pumps if u have a large chamber but because of the compact size.

Yes, it is a mountain bike shock pump rna_duelers and to be quite honest... I hate the thing because it takes soo many pumps, especially considering my current paintballer has a tiny ass chamber! Plus the shaft has taken some considerable wear! This is just temporary until I get my CO2 reg + tank :)

For more money, you can get small high flow air compressors. They run off of 12V, but will still fill faster than a bike pump or emergency air compressor. I bought one of the emergency air compressors for $15 and it only makes .74 cfm. The high flow compressor I am looking at costs about $70 and makes 1.25 cfm.

Umm, I was just kinda looking at those numbers Don, and wouldn't it cost less than half of the price of the the high flow compressor to get two emergency ones and just have two shrader valves on your gun? Wouldn't that give you almost the same performance?
