Filling tanks

I understand you can use a scuba tank to recharge them? (guns). What is/where do you get the regulator?

That's what you need to fill the paintball tanks from scuba tanks, but you will have to have a compressed air tank for the paintball gun.. Cannot fill co2 tank from scuba tank because of pressure

Not sure I get it... So, to clarify. I am told this (paint ball fill?) is the regulator/fill that I can use to recharge my air shifter... on my gsxr powered car. (sorry to threadjack)

There are 2 kinds of tanks for the paintball world.. Compressed air/ nitrogen and co2.. All the high end markers use compressed air because co2 freezes.. Normal fields have both set ups anymore.. Compressed air is great because they use a high pressure compressor an it's "renewable" because its just compressed air.. The compressed tanks are 3000-4500 psi, where co2 works about 1800psi.. It's a huge world in the paintball world.. Biggest question is he going to be playing at a field 90% of the time or just a buddies house? If he is playing at a buddies house I'd stick with co2 because its easily found.. If he is goin to play at the field I'd recommend going and talking to the owner/ manager to see what they have avail etc.. I can explain more about it but its real hard in text. Let me know if you I need to explain more

ahh...paintball, I used to play on a team, for about 5 years, indoor and out door. Played a couple 500 player matches that lasted 10 hours. One was at night game. Started at 9pm and ended at 7am.. That was very interesting.

Sorry, not currently up on the latest PB equipment..........

Yes you can fill that from a scuba tank with the part from that link I sent earlier. Shouldn't need a fill hose, I think it's attached to the regulator already

I honestly don't know what size scuba tank.. I've never had any experience with em so I don't know the sizes.. I'd say the bigger the better. I'd say its about the same price to fill any size scuba tank so might as well get the bigger one so you don't have to buy 2

Tanks a lot...

Ok, so I got two tanks, I got the fitting... Now I think I need a "fill hose" to go from the air regulator on the tank to the paint ball tank?
