Where can I find compressed air tank pumps?

I have heard of people using these manual pumps before to fill their compressed air tanks before, pumps that can fill anywhere from 3k-4.5kpsi. Can someone point me in the right direction because I looked on ebay and found several air pump for different applications but none that I found specified that they had the proper adapter for the fill nipples we use on our pb tanks, and idk if there are other requirements for pumps to safely fill our tanks. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you. I still have my fill station from when I had a scuba tank, should the 1/8 female quick disconnect that is on fit right onto one of these pumps?

Most of the pumps have the correct female qd as most Airguns have the same male qd we use.

Pyramid air will have them for sale

I do not recommend the pumps and everything I talk to someone in the air rifle world they use the pump 1-2 times and then never again.

It takes a lot of effort and more work then you think

ive seen youtube videos of folks using them for different applications and they all did say those pumps do become very difficult to reach the high pressures they are rated for. I think I should just invest in another scuba tank. I had one 3 months ago but couldnt take it with me when I moved from N.Y. to Georgia 3 months ago because I took a flight, and obviously I couldnt afford to pay for that kind of item, plus i wouldnt have a way to remove the valve from it which is required by Jet Blue(my airline of choice) to transport compressed gas containers.

Thanks for the input guys, I think Ill just spend the extra $100 on a scuba tank. I still have my ansgear brand fill station which has served me well for years, and ik I can depend on scuba tanks. Ive been using them since '02 and have never had a single problem.

If you still thinking about a pump, I have this one and I like it. Does it take some effort, yup but well worth it for me. I fill a 13ci tank on commercial breaks. normally takes 3 breaks from 0-3000psi.

Might be a stupid question: is there any worry about moisture/condensation when using a manual air compressor? Google tells me that depending on the application, motorized compressors may have some kind of refrigeration to cool compressed air or chemical components to bond with water, all for the purpose of getting rid of moisture. Obviously shooting a paintball gun is not as critical as say, filling medical oxygen tanks. I'm just wondering if I should be worried about moisture making its way to a solenoid.

water in air is bad. water doesnt compress so this makes bad things happen.

now if this was hydraulics instead of pneumatic's........

What would be the best practice when filling a tank manually? Fill it in the least humid room in my house, and have a snorkel set up to exhale far away from the pump intake? I'm not even kidding, if this is what I have to do to fill my tanks while the fields are closed for the winter then I'll do it. I might be overthinking this whole thing though.

Hypothetical question: if a compressed air tank did have moisture in it, could I solve the problem by screwing on a CP on/off ASA, hold the tank vertically with the regulator pointing down at the floor, and just screw in the on/off to bleed out the moisture?

on commercial compressors they should have a water separator, this is what youd fill a tank with at a field, scuba shop or fire hall. on a hand pump this isnt really possible.

Yeah, you shouldn’t ever get that much moisture in there. Moisture inside the Tank causes corrosion which causes a white powder substance to form inside the Tank. If this happens it can be fixed though.

At the field in the morning I always run air through the fill stations whips a few times in order to blow any condensation out of the connections so it doesn’t end up in people’s Tanks.
