I’ll be covering this topic in full detail in an upcoming video about fill options to consider if you’re just getting into this sport or if you’re expanding your PCP arsenal.
I will tell you from experience, if you are gonna get into big bore Airguns (which I 100% recommend you should), just getting a big external tank ain’t gonna cut it. How you use your Airguns also will determine what fill source you go with.
This Hill EC-3000 sits in the middle and is THE PERFECT solution for Deer Camp or a small shooting club. Fills guns directly super fast and has this slick temperature pause setting then resumes to protect the compressor. Filled my Dragon Claw .50 cal in just a few minutes!
It’s a good option for just topping off 75 / 100cf big tanks for example to bring them from 150 bar back up to 300 bar, but takes longer to fill those big tanks from empty.
I’d also consider getting an external moisture filter for this compressor if you’re gonna have it run for long cycles. The onboard moisture filter seems to be more of a direct to gun filter size. More info coming soon as I get to use this more, but first look is a big thumbs up!
