SCBA Bottle Attachment to PCP Rifle
« on: April 13, 2018, 04:25:52 PM »
A volunteer firefighter, I was recently given a past-service-life carbon-fibre air bottle designed for use in a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus.  It seems like it would be ideal for filling my Marauder PCP airgun, but I haven't been able to find the parts needed to connect the bottle to my gun. Any ideas? Since the bottle contains 4,000 PSI of air, most hoses and fittings are inadequate.  Also, can I do without a regulator if I am cautious when I crack-open the valve?

Trust your fill gauge on your set-up over the rifle gauge.  Fill slow it you fast fill you will over heat and damage the O-Ring seals in your rifle.  There are several quality manufactures out there.  If you don't have any luck let me know and I'll point you there.

This should be posted in the Air Tank forum, so I'll move it there.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

I recently bought a stickman. Well made works great and can also cascade fill if you have an existing tank and fill assembly.
