i made an RPG launcher that uses a bike pump, and i was wondering if instead of using a pump i could bring a small 5 gallon, air tank to refill the launcher. I understand that i would only get 1 shot per use, but id only be using 80-90 PSI for each shot and it would make it much easier for filling heres the link to the page its on

i attached a pic of the tank

I don't believe this would be allowed on field or into the deadbox (would technically violate the bit about no fill stations). However, filling the launcher up in your campsite prior to the game using this, no problem, as long as the launcher fufills other safety requirements.

Air and N2 are virtually the same thing, especially when talked about on a paintball forum. For those not in the know, air is 78% nitrogen and the terms are used interchangeably.

16-Re-supplying: Eliminated players may restock while in the Elimination Zone. Players may take as much paint, extra Co2/HPA tanks, and water onto the field as they choose however, players may not take refill stations, such as scuba tanks or bulk Co2 tanks, onto the field.

Would fall under bulk refill stations

12g adapter with expansion chamber is very common, lots of guides and howto's available for these style launchers.
