HPA 50 ci Worrgame Tank
Spyder Pilot ACS 2005
It Works !!!!
Looks sturdy !!!!
Doesn't come with a hose
The main thing to say about this thing is that it does what it's suppose to do. I used a 80 c.f. Scuba tank (YOKE) and filling my HPA tank was very easy. I would suggest you to get a hose with your fill station because you have to always hold the tanks while filling.
Great way to save money!!!! Look where you can rent or refill your scuba tank before you buy this fill station because most dive stores ask for a diving license for you to rent supplies.

E-Grip (with Rampage Board)
Very solid piece of equipment. I, too, was surprised that it was so simple to fill HPA from a SCUBA tank.
I used to play with CO2, but I bought an A-5 for this upcoming season (2006), and plan on playing with my gas on-gun, and I have an E-Grip with Rampage....a bad combination for CO2. So I converted to HPA , but HPA is very inconvenient to fill up here in northern VT. So my only real option was to buy a couple SCUBA's and fill my own tank.
Now, I would recommend that anyone who plays with HPA to fill their own tanks...if your field allows it. A SCUBA refill costs about $3.00, and can fill my 72/3000 many times, although the pressure will decrease every time. I did the pressure calculations and they followed what really happend almost exactly. They are as follows for my 72/3000:
1st Fill - 2,713 psi
2nd Fill - 2,533 psi
3rd Fill - 2,371 psi
4th Fill - 2,224 psi
5th Fill - 2,091 psi
As you can see, it will never completely fill the tank, but it is cost effective, since I can get as many fills out of it as I want, until I find the pressure to be unacceptable. But even those first five fills for $3.00 is a bargain.
Anywho....I've made my case for the HSL fill station and filling your own HPA.
*NOTE - The A-5's stock efficiency is .012 mols of gas per shot. With my 72/3000, thats roughly 3.39 psi per shot.
It is solid, safe, cost-effective, and good for those who don't have a convenient way to fill their HPA.

Looks like it is milled from one piece of aluminium or steel. STrong
This applies to all home air stations but it can be dangerous.
This thing is great. I have an old scuba tank and I can get it filled for the price of one of my paintball tanks but I can fill my air tank about five times. It is easy to use, and does what it should. It isn't complicated but any air filling can be dangerous, so be careful.
Overall this is a great filler. I even got the local scuba shop to let me use it to fill my 4500psi tank. But be careful it is dangerous like any air filling equipment, but that does impact my review because it does a great job and definitely minimizes my chances of having a problem.

Will get the job done
This is a nice piece, however no hose, so i went out and bought a different one
at http://www.deep-six.com/ with a hose for $150 which works just as well but has a hose. I also set up a cascade system with 3 scuba tanks instead of only one, which means i can get about the equivalent of 27 fills for $15
This is great if you wanna save $50 and not get a hosed one, it will last forever

The friggin oring flew out of the inside.
It was a great product. Whenever we played our weekend games at my buddy's grandmothers house it was almost like my air was unlimited. Worked great for about a year then one time i was filling up my friend's tank when I ran a little air through the valve to make sure there was no dirt when i realized along with the sudden flow of air went a small oring. now there was no air tightness (if you will) so i couldnt fill our tanks. I've yet to find a replacement oring. tomorrow my step-father is taking it to work at the space center with him to see if he can find a fitting oring.
Was good for a while. i suggest taking the oring inside the little valve out and putting some glue on it. tat way it will be stuck in there thus always giving you a nice air tight seal to air up your HPA tanks. i'll give it a six because the problem could have been avoided but it still should not have happend.
It is very easy to install just put over top of scuba tank and screw on for the use its great just clamp on the gun tank open the scuba tank valve and the limiter stops it at 3000 psi then turn the scuba tank off and then turn the release valve on the fill station and take off your tank and your ready to go.
If you want to fill your own air and you got a scuba tank get it.
