Most of the time a welding supply company will have "bulk" 50 pound cylinders. They are very expensive to buy so most paintball businesses rent them. I can not give you the price. That is up to you to find out. Look in the phone book under welding supply. Hope this helps

I will tell you that most high pressure cylinders cost $500-700 brand new.

Just to add to this:

You will want to ask for High Pressure Bottles
either 3000 PSI, 4500 PSI or 6000 PSI

You will also need the proper hoses, adaptors and fill station.

Remember that Nitrogen might be a little less expensive to buy from them.

Since its for a field cotanct a bulk distributor like Amerigas. They take care of the whole package for you.

If you are planning on doing CO2 fills contact your local weights and measures office. So many field owners don't. When you base a fill price on the mass of the gas that is W&M jurisdiction. One fine from these guys can end a business. I have a very old and dear friend that works in weights and measures. He is a very just and fair person, but some of them are not.

Make sure you are compliant from the beginning.

You can buy bottles and fill stations from E-Z Air,(Memphis Paintball), or Nuvair in Cali., both have websites. I have dealt with both Eric from E-Z and Nuvair, both are great companies. I have an extra compressor for sale if you are interested.

so just out of curiosity, how much would a setup like this cost? Bought, not rented.

these will fill to 6000 PSI. With a compressor in the back which you cant see.

Guessing by the size of that unit, i would say $10,000. - $12,000. Your best bet is to go to like I said before either E-Z Air, or Nuvair websites, they both have package deals for paintball fields. I paid $7,500. new for my one gas compressor 7.4 cfm and 2 4500 bottles with 9hp Honda engine, and 1 fill station. I paid $10,000. for my diesel 15cfm compressor with 2 5000 bottles with 2 fill stations, it was a used unit.
