    I’m thinking of ordering a compressor and would like some opinions. The 3 are as follows.

    Hatsan Spark

    Nomad II

    Benjamin Traveler

    all I am going to use the compressor for is to fill my guns. Any experience with any of the listed compressors and opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks,

    Butch

    I think the internals on these three models are very similar. All run on 12vdc. All are made in China. The Nomad II I believe is the most compact (built in 120v power supply). It also has a very nice carry/storage bag I don’t think the others have. It is the one I chose and I am so far delighted with the purchase. Small lube port issue but no other problems. And it is no noisier than your common vacuum cleaner. Great little unit.

    Dennis I have done my research but not much from owners of the compressors listed above. From the reviews I have read and watched, they all sound good. Thanks for your input.

    Out of them the hatsan is cheapest. But air Venturi is more compact, bigger yes, but don't jeen external power supply. As it is build inside the unit. So looks nicer and cleaner. But it's $650. Vs 377 on the hatsan. Benjamin is just like the hatsan, external power supply, but is 650. I would get the hatsan for 377, and use a 12v battery or get the power supply for extra $50. They all work the same. If you have the 650, go for the air venturi. It has built in power Supply so less wires exposed.

    Well been watching many reviews and really no complaints about any of the three compressors list above. So I bought the Hatsan Spark from FS for $372 and plan on using it with my portable battery source. Just could not justify the extra cost of the other 2. I will update with what I think when I get to put it to work on a couple of my guns. Should be here next week.   

    Thanks,

    Butch

    First fill was my gauntlet. From 1000psi to 3000psi in about little over 3 minutes. First time filling one of my guns and not sweating. Lol.

    I watched some videos of it before buying it and thought damn that thing is loud. Happy to say it is not loud. When you first turn the fan on it sounds like a the cooling fan is on turbo mode, but then you kick the compressor on and it quiets down. Like I said not bad at all.
