    I am looking for a practical 300 bar day cylinder around 1 litre that will give about 3 good fills. I have got a 3l cylinder but that's a bit big to leave in the car all the time.

    I see the 500cc kits on Best Fittings, but they are a bit too small IMO. The best I've found so far is this:

    2L/ 300 bar cylinder with valve

    Anyone aware of anything aound 1litre at 300bar?

    I have a 1.5 litre which I picked up in a tat bin at the dive shop.

    20 years ago I had a large BSA super 10 buddy bottle with adapters to make it into a day bottle. Gave 2 refills on an S300.
    No idea if they still do them

    That's about the same as the BF "day tripper":

    500cc Day Tripper Charging Cylinder – Best Fittings

    That's too small when there's 2 or 3 gun to fill to 200bar - so a 1litre 300 bar would be perfick.

    Still looking.....

    Honestly what’s wrong with that 2 or even the 3 litre?

    Nothing, apart from bulk.

    I currently carry my 3litre bottle in the car and top that up from the 7litre at home. With a smaller day bottle it will be a bit more handy, and fit in the lower bootspace so I can fit all the rifles in the boot out of sight. I often have 4 or 5 with club guns and my own.

    Then you’ll want a couple of 500cc buddy bottles with gauges and valves, working out expensive.
    That’s only 1 litre of air, not sure if they can be filled to 300bar.

    Tell the wife you need a bigger vehicle!

    I got a 3L dumpy bottle. Same diameter as a 7L or larger bottle, just much shorter. Very compact.
