Short answer - No.

Longer answer - no because the output pressure is too low.

Nope, car tires take about 40 psi, tanks fill to the thousands. You need a compressor that fills 3K to 4.5k psi, yours won't go anywhere near that.

You could buy a used scuba tank around 80 cubic feet and 3000 psi on ebay for cheap and buy a $20 fill station and you can used that to fill your tanks. Thats what i do. Have your local scuba station fill the scuba tank for you.

technically the compressor he has would fill the tank to whatever the output pressure of the compressor was. my guess would be around 150lbs.

edit: assuming it is a small shop compressor and not the type that plugs into the cigarette lighter on the car.

There is a product that came out recently, I think it's called a Shoebox Compressor, that can fill a tank in a few hours with the aid of a shop compressor. I want to say they go for $3-400. But, as stated, most shop compressors have an output of 150 PSI, and paintball tanks require 20 or 30 times that.

i think you could rig your gun to feed off of the comrpessor tank. as long as your gun's operating pressure is lower than the tanks max output, the tank will keep compessing and you could have unlimited shots.

Ehh, not really. Between regulators, you generally want a buffer of pressure, maybe just a few hundred pounds. So if your marker is running at 100psi input, feeding it 150psi will be close, though probably good enough to test for cycling.

As far as filling your tank though, sorry, not going to happen.

^^ Hmm, I don't think so. I couldn't see a hand pump being able to pump up to 3000 psi. Never said anything about filling hpr bottles with this. Only says something about airsoft.

Its been done, but takes forever and gets near impossible to pump near the 2000+ psi range..

You could get one of those and rig it up like how oil pumps are.

Good to know. That is why I said "don't think so" because I wasn't 100% on it.

I bet it does take forever.

well it is regulated to 2000psi output, so it's a bit high for paintball applications. (says the guy with a 1200psi reg for his mag)

It looks exactly like your basic steel HPA bottle for paintball (which it probably is, just a bb gun companies name on it)

It's 2000psi output. I don't think your paintball marker would like it very much
