    I’ve been using a hatsan spark knock off with success filling rifles and tanks in bottles. But I’ll be doing a lot more big bore shooting so it’s time to make the jump. 
     

    I got the last yong heng from Walmart with 4 year protection plan, for $333 including tax. Says delivery June 9. 3 days after my birthday. Next Friday I suppose I’ll order that tux filter that costs 100 bucks.

    I use a less expensive filter, the black one, for about half the gold filter's cost.  Works well, stops water and oil from getting into the tank.

    Cheaper is not always better when dealing with High Pressure Air.  At 4500 psi, those filters are miniature bombs.  I would put quality over low price, IMHO.

    The smaller black filters are cheaper because they are smaller. They also waste less air and are more suitable for filling small tanks and still a good option for large tanks. The Airmega brand black filter has a wall thickness of 8mm and is probably safely capable of withstanding higher pressures than the Tuxing gold filter. There was a video on Youtube about an apparently counterfeit Airmega one that only had a 3 mm wall thickness that blew the end cap off. I haven't heard of it happening again or if the knockoff is still available or not.  If you are only going to fill your gun directly, I wouldn't recommend either the Tuxing or Airmega because of air wastage. The filter on the unit should be adequate.

    Cheaper doesn't always mean less quality. The black filter they talking about is cheaper cause it is smaller. I have use the black filter aka airmega and the big gold filter. Both are rated for 4500 psi. Been filling them to 4500 no problem. So don't go telling folks cheaper is bad when thats not always the case.

    lol, albeit not a huge jump .. a big bore is gonna tax that young hen, it will fill a large bottle, but its tongue will be hanging out after an hour and a half probably lol …if i was serious into lots of big bore shooting it would be time for that several grand gas powered scuba compressor …

    The "young hen" tops off the largest tanks from around 3500 to 4500 in a bit over 10 minutes.  For almost 3 years in my case, and others have reported similar lengths of use.  They CAN work very well.
