    What sizes smaller than 3lt can be found for bottles. looking at 300 bar min.

    I know back in the 1990's i had a 15lt (Bomb size) and something like a 1.5 lt bottle. Used to decant from 15-1.5 and carry that to shoot.

    so i was thinking someting along the lines of 1lt + would be an idea if it were 300 bar. easier to take in car?

    Any one point me towards the desired small 300bar bottle?

    Charging bottles

    Simon I have been looking at the ones best fittings do ,they do a 400cc 300 bar mini charger
    Not sure but I would think you would get a couple of top ups

    the thing is to get the volume of air you will still need a 300 bar working pressure cylinder.

    If i could get 2 or 3 fills for the ev2 out of it that would be enough.

    You can get 300bar cylinders that are used by paintballers and are available in 1lt....may be worth a look to see if they can be used

    I think it's time perhaps clubs put on air at the plinking ranges for GP's... some of them have been a bit of a treck away from the parking. If there was 2x 12L 300 bar bottles up on a plinking range then they should last all day if people are considerate and fill up before going up to the range.

    A good idea.will see that something is available at Wafta Gp.

    even if its a bit smaller? something is better than nothing?

    My idea of the small bottle is not proving to be as easy to impliment at a cost i would like.

    500cc 250 bar looks best bet so far, but even that new is £125 + fittings etc!

    That's only 50 bar of fill pressure in side 500cc, your cylinder is 200cc.
    Only a couple of fills provided you have a full fill in there

    Yep. 500 cc x 250 bar gives you 125000 bar CC... but you want to fill at 200 bar, so actually you only have 500 CC x 50 bar which is 25,000 bar CC

    you want to fill a 200cc EV2 from 100 bar (ish) which means each fill back up to 200 bar needs 20,000 of them... which means you will get 1 fill... after that you'll be filling below 200 bar... ok, so you may squeeze 2-3 out if you fill at say 150 and only fill up to 180-190... handy, but expensive. It makes you wonder why the EV's don't do detachable bottles...

    I was at Anston the other day, one bloke had a small 1.5lt bottle, he said he got it from S D S Halfway. It fitts to your big bottle to top it up.

    Hi all
    I think best fittings now do a 3l carbon cylinder now, its that light you can carry it in your combat pants pocket.
