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
No, do not try to fill a CO2 canister with HPA.
If you have a 4500 or 3000 PSI compressor then yes.
HPA means high pressure air, so it basically means everything you breath in compressed into a tank
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.
NO! Hpa is compressed air, which is mostly N2. Filling a tank with pure oxygen has a large chance of combustion, which under such great pressures will cause death or serious injury.
A compressed C02 tank or High Pressure Air tank propels the paintball.
The sizes 9 oz and all the way up to 20 oz can be used for paintball gun. Some of the paintball guns are supposed to be used by the larger tanks. So the size of tank depends on your paintball gun.
There is usually 850 psi in a co2 tank. An HPA tank is a totally different story.
Carbon fiber Compressed air tank.
your local paintball field. Or you can purchase a scuba tank and adapter to fill the paintball tank with and every once in a while fill the scuba tank up if you live like out in the middle of nowhere
With a paintball field CO2 filling station, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ON YOUR OWN!! IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO FILL A TANK UP NEVER FILL ON YOUR OWN!!!
The compressed air buildes up pressure in the tank and when you pull the trigger a valve opens up and forces the paintball out the barrel.
Compressed air tanks were around long before paintball.
Go to a paintball store and pay for them to fill it.
If you have a bulk co2 canister or a scuba tank, then yes, with the proper adapters you can fill your tank at home.
if u mean the tank that you put your shoulder against and what powers it. no u can get co2 or compressed air (compressed air is better for your gun)
No! You can only use one with the same output pressure as the tank. Only the Large Compressors at paintball fields can do this
at some you can
No, do not attempt to do so.
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.
At some sporting goods stores or any paintball field.
You can use a scuba tank, but that is it.
No, that would be impossible because the air has to compressed to force the ball out of the barrel.
if you're asking how to refill the tank you take it to a local paintball shop or sporting goods store, they can fill them
