if your talking about a garage air compressor there is no adapter, (or more accurately even if there is one it wouldn't work) a garage compressor puts out around 150-200 psi at most, a HPA tank needs 3,000-4,500 psi. not only that but the garage compressor uses wet dirty air, something you do not want going through your marker. If you are looking to have a fill at home you can get a Scuba tank and a fill station for it. fill the scuba tank at your local dive shop and then you can fill off of it when you are at home
the ASA (air source adapter)
stands for Air Source Adapter, its where you screw the tank in
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
Only if it has an output pressure of your tank, either 3000, 4500, or 5000. Most compressors cant do this.
A vertical adapter is what connects the air from the ASA (Air Source Adapter) to the proper places (the valve or any other parts controlled by air) This is where you can put a gas through grip, expansion chamber, regulator or anything that has the standard ASA threads and is attached to the ASA (horizontal/tank adapter)
A compressed C02 tank or High Pressure Air tank propels the paintball.
I have three Craftsman air compressors, and on all three, the tank is marked with DeVilbiss. I can't say who manufactures the COMPRESSOR portion, but the TANK comes from DeVilbiss, who also does make compressors.
Carbon fiber Compressed air tank.
Where the air tank or co2 tank normally attaches
No, the scuba apparatus will not fit a threaded tank.
No, do not attempt to do so.
Yes! The purpose of an Air tank is so that you can refill it. Almost any Paintball Field or store can fill your tank.
Yes the main difference is a SCUBA tank is used for high pressure breathing air (3200-5000 PSI). A paintball tank has a lower PSI rating and is also measured in ounces not PSI. Even though most people use a breathing air compressor to fill paintball tanks.
The very basics are: A paintball mask, paintballs, A paintball gun, an air tank, and a hopper.
if you are talking about the threads they are 1/2" NPT
if you're talking about the air tank, it should say on the side of the tank.
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.
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.
Because you need something to propel the paintballs.
Compressors do not 'make' air. They are essentially air pumps take the air from the surroundings and compress it into a tank for use with tools or inflating tires.
if your tank runs out take it to your locale paintball field thay should fill it up for you for a small fee exp=5$ unlimated air for the day at my field.
The "tombstone" is what the gas-valve connection device on the Tippmann A5/X7. It is on the end of the steel hose, which is connected to the ASA or Air source adapter, where the tank is screwed in.
Compressed air tanks were around long before paintball.
A standard compressor can pressurize to around 300 psi. A paintball tank is much greater, being 3000 to 4500 psi.
No. Nerf guns always use springs to pressurize a small amount of air in a small plastic tube, where paintball guns have a highly compressed air or co2 tank in steel or carbon fiber tank.
