    The Coltri and Alkin compressors are almost the same price, and both are quite a bit less than a Bauer. Is there any reason to choose one over the other? The Airetex is near in price to these two, but there hasn’t been too much mention of them lately.

    I had researched these a few years back and I think  the Alkin and the Airetex are very similar if not the same compressor.. The Coltri and the Daystate are very similar if not the same compressor. The Alkin is made in Turkey and the Coltri is made in Italy. Not sure of the price differences. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Never seen a coltri in person but have had access to two different aitex units which did work prefectly, somewhat heavy if thi nking “portable” but with 2 people no problem.

    Now ” Curly ” ( aka Bruce Dodson ) is a long time airgunner, used to be on the airgun news letter way back and is a great person to deal with should any issues ever arise with your unit.

    The Alkin weighs 132 lbs. and the Coltri/Daystate is around 100.  I know the Alkin or Airetex lopes along at around 1200 rpms and I’m speculating that the Coltri/Daystate runs at higher rpms.  You may wish to check it out.  Lower rpms means the compressor works less and runs quieter to achieve the fill speed.  It’s a Chevrolet vs. Ford comparison because both brands are excellent compressors.  If someone offered me one or the other I’d take the Alkin/Airetex but I’d be happy with the Coltri/Daystate.  I mount my compressor on a yard cart so it is easy to move around if I need to.

    The Alkin is a 3 stage compressor.  The Coltri model in the same class is a 4 stage compressor and the CFM is a little higher.  I don’t think there is a bad choice between the two.  I personally went with the Daystate/Coltri because of the 4th stage and being made in Italy vs Turkey.

    I own a Daystate T2. Its a relabeled 4-stage Coltri made in Italy (i.e. Daystate did nothing other than put their badge on it); even the owners manual is printed by Coltri). Its a beast: heavy, reliable & expensive, and capable of producing breathable air with the correct final stage filter; for air guns its overkill, but you get what you pay for. Search on AGN and you will find more posts from owners.

    FYI.. we are not affiliated with Airetex anymore. Airetex used to sell our compressors in the past but due to poor customer service they provided and their short warranty period, we have stopped working with them and started our own distribution network and servicing in the States. We carry all the parts and products in NJ warehouse with plenty stock.

     So direct from the warehouse now which is handled 100% by email or call +90 232 782 22 90  .
    It seems PA would like to carry your product ( has a listing just not available) and if interested in the airgun owners business a retail outlet does not seem a bad idea.

    Maxair is also coltri.
    I found one at a pawn shop.for $800.
    I was thinking something  must be wrong 
    with it.i contacted  maxair while I was there.
    I sent 3 photos. They called me back in 5
    minutes.  They said buy it. So I did.
    the only thing wrong was the gauge was leaking
    through all the  liquid had been pushed out. 
    there are some good videos on rebuilding 
    the coltri compressors also.

    Alkin's warehouse in in Newark NJ. You can google it and even stop by to see the compressor on the showroom.

    We bring the parts from Turkey and assemble them here in New Jersey.
