Hand pump for hpa

So I'm considering buying a Benjamin hpa hand pump capable of up to 4,500 psi for when I buy a hpa tank. Have any of you ever bought a hand pump? It doesn't have to be a Benjamin. I just know that's a good brand. They're about $134.00 on amazon.com Any suggestions or recommendations? Basically I don't want to have to go to filling station if not absolutely necessary.

What size tank are you filling? It's my understanding that these are slow and it may take you all day to fill a 68ci tank.

My recommendation is get down on arm day before attempting. I remember doing it on a 13/3k and it felt like an eternity.

I'm not sure if banjamin is a good brand for hand pumps, I run a hill which is more top of the line. Now I use mine to top off my pcp Airgun tank that is smaller than a 13/3000 in volume (and is no less than 1100 psi) and it takes about 5 min to bring it upto the max 220 bar (3100ish psi). Now also you shouldn't continually pump a hand pump for more than 5ish (I'm not completely sure) minutes or you'll risk damaging the seals due to over heating.

I doubt it's worth it

Spyder paintball offers an electric air pump for about $350 on amazon. That'd be the way to go for the weekend warrior I decided.

Filling a tank with a hand pump is a horrible experience. Tried it a couple times for an air rifle, I think the tank was a 16/3K and just getting it up to 2K took forever with two of us rotating.

Lets see some MCB ingenuity here!

Two air pumps, output plumbed together as one combined with a stationary bike.

GO!

the extra $200 on the other electric options is easily worth the avoidance of the physical therapist.

Any local scuba places near you? Consider using a scuba tank and station. I fill my own c02 using a 50lb tank and fill adapter
