Thanks for posting this Mike.If anyone has specific questions about the set up or anything you would like to know about the process for filling guns from a SCBA tank, please do not hesitate to ask!Tyler
Where can fill adaptors be purchased? Im a member of a local fire department and have access to scba bottles and compressor
stupid question, what keeps the air from escaping the gun reservoir when you open the bleeder

Bleed fast to keep from losing air. I just invested in CF tanks so I'm trying to learn as much as I can. I've watched this video a few times. You in the same boat?

Im a member of a local fire department and have access to scba bottles and compressorWe manufacture several different filling devices for several large gun companies including Benjamin. Here's a list of some different options for you in case you want to see what we manufacture. These are manufactured here in the United States: http://www.pyramydair.com/search-results-ext?Ntt=benjamin+fill&sid=1375A617A415&N=0&Ntk=primary&q=benjamin+fill&cx=002970863286801882398:jlcminxfwdw&cof=FORID:11;NB:1&saSearch&jsessionid=3024877BDD54F99C7CA2DA64BFE0D421.app03We also have another device that also serves other purposes. The device attaches to large 6000psi bulk tanks with a CGA-677 fitting or to SCBA bottles with a DIN 300 valve. The device allows you to control the output pressure by external adjustment. The output pressure for this device can be set anywhere from 500psi all the way up to 5000psi by turning an adjustment screw and using one of the two gauges supplied with the device. If you have several guns rated at different pressures, this would be an ideal fit. Another purpose this device serves is a regulator while being tethered. Attach it to an SCBA tank using the DIN 300 fitting, set the output pressure to the optimum pressure your gun requires to get the most optimal shots, attach a properly rated hose and use properly rated fittings and tether the SCBA bottle and fill device and go have fun This will eliminate the whole bell curve if your gun does not already come with a regulator.Here's a picture of the device. If you have any questions about our products or filling in general, feel free to use me as a resource. 877-646-5287 x309 (Rob)
Yep. That's also how you degas for maintenance. Followed of course by a couple of dry fires to make sure it's empty.
What are the main components in the adapter pictured above. Is it a cga 347 to 1/4" npt male adapter followed by a bleed valve with female 1/4" npt at both ends, plus a 1/4" npt male to quick disconnect make adapter?Is there any other market where stainless steel is considered an expensive material? I can't believe that's the reason why these adapters are so expensive. stainless steel is cheap.
