    Hi guys

    I have just got a paintball gun this weekend a invert mini. I can't find anywhere local who does air refills. I'm thinking of getting a pump but not sure.

    Does anyone know where near Burnley who would do refills?

    Thanks

    Only place I can think of is a paintball site, some do a small charge for a refill if you are not playing.

    I would really recommend just getting air fills from a local site that runs walkons. Any such site will run on air, and fills are free when you play

    A stirrup pump is an option, but will take thousands of pumps and a lot of physical activity to fill. They cost a fair bit of money for a good pump that has suitable filtering to ensure uncontaminated air

    A much easier method is a scuba cylinder and a paintball fill rig. But again its expense and physical activity (carrying the cylinder to get it filled at a scuba shop and back)

    Alternately if you bring a fill rig a scuba shop will probably be willing to fill for you. Not every scuba shop is paintball friendly, and as you get charged per fill then it gets pricey

    Unless you have access to private land then within the uk there is little true use in your own fill system, and it's a lot of expense for your first fill considering you can take away sufficient air after a game of paintball for any testing you may need at home

    I went to a local paintball centre and they filled my tank for free and let me test my marker out as well!
