    Default 'Portable' air tanks

    I get around mostly on my cruiser (yes... the bike is also part of my mid-life crisis, but I use this all the time - not like the tools), and so I need some sort of portability when it comes to my shooting rig. I also want something to carry in the bush when hunting

    Questions:

    Are there any 'small, light' airtanks available that can fit into a backpack and give a few 200 bar fills?

    Is the 'paintball cannister (200 bar)' method viable?

    If so, are there any standard adaptors available (Lloyd?) that will allow one to connect the rifle to a paintball cannister as a refill method?

    Any other suggestions?

    Thats why I got myself a rifle with a 680cc combined air tank....

    No need to carry around spare bottles.

    You do get smaller 3l carbon bottles, they are not very cheap.

    A carbon tank 68CU that fills to 4500psi is going to cost as much as a scuda tank (6L 300 bar), so is not really worth it. Depending on your rig you could just buy a second tank. (as in the talon) Or just "buy a hand pump"

    Yes why diddnt I think of that......

    A handpump can easily fit in a bag and is not heavy or to bulky to take with on the bike.

    i think i paid about R1600-00 for a flber/68cu/4500psi.
    it should work with slight mods, as these tanks comes with regulators.
