a compressor capable of pushing over 4,500 psi and an adapter. the adapters aren't that expensive but those compressors arent cheap. The ones you find at lowes and Home Depot only go up to around 300 fps. you need a Scuba tank compressor. or you could get a scuba tank and an adapter. you can fill your own paintball tank many times and then have a scuba shop fill your large tank for a few dollars. its cheaper that way

To refill a paintball tank, you must first go to a paintball field or store with a paintball air compressor. You can't refill them with just any home depot compressor, it takes serious pressure to fill these tanks. Find the fill station with the same pressure as your tank (3000, 4500 or 5000 psi) and hook up the fill hose to the fill nipple on the side of the tank while it is attached to your gun. Then press the lever or button in until the gauge on your tank or on the filler is at the correct pressure and release. Then unhook the fill hose.

First you must determine if your gun can use compressed air. Consult the manual for this (most guns can, but certain guns require high or low pressure air tanks). Then purchase either a metal (low end) or carbon fiber/fiberglass tank (high end) with the pressure and size of your budget and liking. Then screw in the tank as you would a co2 canister, then head over to a Paintball air refill station, ask a referee or a friend how to fill it, then hook it up, and fill it.
