Wow thats cool, I didn't realize those paint ball tanks were 3000 psi.

I'm sure you could then as long as there is enough volume in It. (never had a piston pump)

Now I'm out lookin for a regulator for 1 of those tanks

Damn I'm going to go buy a few of those for charging accumulators.

I AM CURENTLY SHOPPING FOR A NITROGEN TANK TO FILL MY BLADDER AND PISTON PUMPS.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE A PAINT BALL NITROGEN TANK TO DO THIS?

That tank is pretty small not to mention you fill your pumps in lbs not psi that think is not very big of a tank you might get 5-10 fills depending on how many lbs you put in your pump

as long as the outlet pressure can be adjusted to what you need than it shall work as some are fixed out put. another thing is getting nitrogen, MOST paintball shops just have a 5 stage compressor. which is just air...not something i would do because of the moisture, fluctuation and oxygen present.
just go to your welding supply store and ask for there small bottle of nitrogen. its what i did. i can carry the tank under one arm.
paint ball tanks range is size from 46cu to 114 i believe. 3000psi-4500psi.

psi = pounds per sq inch.
