Would a 3000 psi be considered too high pressure?

3000psi is the capacity of the tank, not the output pressure.

As stated previously, get a ninja tank (4500psi). With a ninja tank, you can adjust the output pressure by removing shims from inside the regulator. That way, you can get the pressure lower and not have issues with the G5.

A standard compressor from a home improvement store will not fill a paintball tank. The output on those compressors is not enough pressure.

With HPA tanks, is it possible to fill it with an air compressor, if you had the right adapter?
im not sure what you are getting at. The G5 has a regulator that is adjustable.



As stated by Dark above me, the tank has a regulator with a very low output pressure (under 1000psi). The G5 requires LP output or anything under 600psi. Industry standard for High Pressure is an output of 800-850psi. LP is about 450-550.

Ok. I understand. I looked at a supply store online and the one I found was a ninja 50 ci 4500 psi tank with an adjustable regulator for $145.

The reason I am coming off so dumb about all of this is because I am coming off of a 3-year hiatus from paintball. And only once did I play on an actual course once. The most expensive gun I played with was a spyder mr1. And it was mediocre at best. Where can you get a compressed air tank filled at?

Usually the only place is your field. Sometimes if you are lucky, a fire dept. will be willing to fill your bottle if you bring in an adapter that can allow them to fill the tank.

most local paintball shops will be able to fill it also, btw what kind of hopper did you get?
