Compressed air tank, can it be filled with pump?

I just got a compressed air tank off craigslist for $10. And getting fills in my area is a pain.

My brother just got a Benjamin .22 pellet gun, and it runs off compressed air. It came with a air pump that has a fitting like a paintball fitting...

Can I use the pump to fill my tank? The pump goes up to 3,500 psi?... I filled his gun last night, and it didn't take long at all to fill it to 3,000 psi... (course I would imagine it is smaller than a paintball tank, so it might take forever to pump up 3,000 psi in a paintball tank).


I figured someone here would know the answer?

From what I remember, you can, but as you guessed, it would take ALOT of time and work.

I hope I'm not wrong. Best wait for someone who has more/some experience with them.

A free Workout, AND free air... Sounds like a win/win.

I'm going to have to try it!

You might consider getting a Shoebox Compressor that Tom Kaye designed. Home << ShoeBox Compressors - The World's Smallest & Lightest 4500 PSI Compressor

I have one and love it. If only I could find a 4500 psi SCUBA to replace my 3k one.

Good luke trying to find a 45 scuba tank I used to work summers at a dive shop when diving was all the rage several years ago and they were super rare then and mostly bulky steel tanks for wreck and cave diving.

Lol.

It looks like a floor bicycle pump, so you use 2 hands...

I'm way too cheap to drop $500 on ANYTHING paintball, much less a compressor.

This pump is manual, and you can literally take it to the field with you and fill it while sitting in the dead zone!

Here is a similar one.

Air Venturi G4 Hand Pump, Hose with 1/8" BSPP Threads. Hand pumps.

Here is the tanks they sell... But, they say they aren't paintball compatible?... I guess because they are lower psi output?

Benjamin Air Tank, 2000 psi Output. Scuba tanks & air reservoirs.

I would have thought someone would have tried this before? Especially on this site...
