Bought a Young-Heng, used it once-seemed OK.

Bought a Freedom 10 a couple years before the market got swamped with Chinese compressors. The Freedom 10 is decent, not exceptional but it does what I need it to do in a reasonable time. I'm OK with that. More to the point is that having my own compressor for my air tank is really convenient. Makes the investment worthwhile to me.

Not yet. The less expensive compressors seem to get poor reviews or take a lot of extra work and parts to make them usable for PCP's.

The expensive compressors are pricey as hell. It seems they're price gouging because they have no real competition.

Yong Heng have a good reputation, and can be found at a good price: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Yong-Heng...110V/968245645 . There are several variants, with those that turn off at a set pressure costing more. All YH compressors need to be run with cooling water. They are somewhat noisy.

This one is compact and portable. It can be run off a car battery and comes with a 12 VDC supply: www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0819ZH85H/

If filling bottles to over 4000 PSI I would go YH. If directly filling a PCP to no more than 4000 PSI, the GX.

The YH needs its oil changed periodically. The GX is grease lubed.

I have both.

Yong Heng here too. It started leaking oil after a while, so have to add oil before using it.
Other than that it works great and is way better than a hand pump!!!

Bit the bullet, bought an Alkin W31 upright. About the cost of two high-end pcp rifles.

Yong Heng, use it to fills my bottles & it works well. You'll need a decent dessicant filter to go with it.

well lucky me, my buddy that got me into PCP's just bought a Blitz, and he also bought a Umarex compressor to go with it. And then another friend of mine caught the bug, so he just bought a Gauntet and also purchased a compressor. LOL. I'm covered.


Umarex comp filled my 22 Marauder from 2kpsi to 3k in 3.03 seconds

So i mag dumped my Marauder down to about 1.2k psi, and used the Umarex compressor to refill. Took 4.22 seconds to fill back to 3k psi.

I bought a Coltri MCH-6 dive compressor. Fills a 100 cu ft tank in no time with breathing quality air. I got a steal of a deal that included both an electric motor and a gas engine.

I have one of these also. I bought mine through an ad on Craigslist and had to partially rebuild it, but the end result was worth it.

Once you have your own compressor and you don’t have to drive across town to get your tanks refilled you’ll find that shooting PCP airguns will have become easier by a factor of about a thousand.

Get a cheap one or get an expensive one, but get a compressor. You won’t regret it.

i think i'm gonna by the Yong Heng compressor that requires water for cooling. seem like a lot of people are using it will decent success. I don't need it to be adaptable for 12v so i'm good with 110v home usage.

I had looked at the Yong Hengs and they are sold by everyone and their mother, and there are four versions. Fear of buying a piece of junk had me scared of it. I was going to get it from Walmart and get the Walmart warranty if it applies".
