    I picked up a small buddy bottle for my P-rod. Got the bottle off Amazon:

    The biggest issue I had was finding a good fill station for it.  

    I got this one; however the shipping was horrendously long and the gauges that came on it was pure crap, and leaked like crazy!! But once I got a set of decent gauges on it and the leaking issues sorted out, it works great! (used the gauges I removed off y FX.)

    Here it is.

     

    Anyone know where I can get a short micro hose? about 6" would be great!
    This one off Amazon was Crap!  Threads didn't fit and the fittings leaked like crazy!

    Huh, I never even thought of using a tank like that. Depending on what PSI you are refilling at, you're probably getting 5-6 refills.

    a 1/2 liter bottle, 4500psi fill and shooting from 3K down to 2K he's likely going to get double those numbers.

    Yeah, that's why I said "depending on what PSI you are refilling too…" since I calculated it with refilling at 1300 as a "worst case scenario".

    for the hose, cant tell ya exactly, but likely you can find a short one on ebay  .. how i would handle it is find a male foster to actually put on the bottle and make a double female hose up to use … if you find a cheap say 1' hose on ebay its possible the threads will be non-standard so you may need to get 2 if its the usual male/female setuo so you can switch the ends to achieve a double female …

    In regards to a short micro-bore hose, check Air Tanks Plus.  You might want to ask Joe B as well.

    On another note, how's the accuracy of your FX gauges?  One of the main reasons most people change them out is because of the inaccuracy of their gauges.

    I'm fairly sure this is 100x better than the cheap Chinese crap that came on the fill station.

    As for fills? Not sure yet how many fills I can get. My P-rod shoots about 40ish good shots on the reg. I basically use it when I go over to my buddy's house to do pesting. Only refilled my gun once.  The P-rod has a really small air tube.
    The set up after I fixed the issues, works really well for what I need.  For my Impact I have a MSA 30min bottle.
