The easiest way to fill any air tank now a days.

Say, How many pumps to fill up a 3000 psi nitro tank? Just curious.

these are acctually legit. They really do fill to 3000 PSI, but it takes about 5 min. of pumping to fill a 68 tank. And you have to stop periodically so you don't over heat the pump and burn up the seals.

IIRC it took about 60 strokes per cubic inch @ 3000PSI

It takes quite the amount of pumps to fill a standard tank... a few more than 60.

As for how, its all about the volume of the air you are trying to compress and the piston size, thus how a 1" wide piston can do all the work an excavator does.

I think you misread Rayodder's statement.

Yes, yes I did

A standard 68ci tank will take 4080 pumps, and then add in for what is lost after it cools...

And if you could manage 2 strokes per second continuously it would take you 35 Minutes to fill that tank.

After which time an old man like myself would collapse and die from exhaustion.

Consider that I only need about 200 shots a day with my phantom, and I get that out of just barely over the output pressure of 800 PSI, I'd only need to pump for about 10 ;-)
