    It's only been stateside for a week or so, and information on it from users just isn't in yet.  But here's what we could gather from the Air Venturi/Pyramid Air exhibit.

    Definitely a nice unit and we'll made from what I've seen. Still can only fill the gun and not suitable for filling a tank. I think the Nomad ii may be a better option for me considering I can run it in the field off my vehicle.

    I like Hill, not sure I can trust Venturi. Prove me wrong.

    Wondering the real benefit of buying something you can only fill the gun with. I guess if you have access to power at the range or are using it to fill at home it's great. Still at $1000 I think I would want something capable of filling my tanks? It is a very nice unit I just don't see the application working for my needs.

    Personal experience with Venturi, not a good one. I bought their Booster with my hard earned $, had to return it twice. 2nd time for my $ back. Left a sour taste in my mouth. 

     I have never owned a Hill pump, but have never heard anything bad about them. Would actually buy one if I wanted to hand pump. 

    Would welcome a free Venturi unit & promise to give a fair review. #AirgunSupremacy

    I'm sure you are aware that the Hill compressor is a product of Air Venturi here in the usa. All I was saying was I don't understand why anyone would want a compressor that can only fill the gun and not a tank..kinda limits us to being stuck at home or somewhere that has power.

    No, I did not. Thanks for the info. I got you. I would not mind (personally) a compressor that can only fill the gun, as long as it is a quality unit. Personally because my Tacoma has an inverter in the bed/back and I would be able to fill on the fly. It is just that I had a bad experience with Air Venturi's unit in the past, and that was enough.

    Yeah an inverter is way to go, I loved the Nomad ii and thankful I didn't have anything go wrong. The Hill is a very nice unit, I looked at it closely at the Shot Show. Still at $1000 I think I would just invest in another large tank. Marley's sitting next to me now watching Tremors 4 lol

    I hear you on the Air Venturi quality issue. I'm not sure Umarex is any better, but they have a similar styled compressor at 1/2 the cost and supposedly made sure it was built as reliable as possible. I'm looking at that as well as another Chinese one coming out this year as well.

    many brands with a similar size compressor like this new one from hill would say that it would not be a problem two fill tanks – and they all fail after some time

    ill bet this hill will last forever if its filling guns only!

    It would be hard for me not to spend a touch more and get an omega aircharger. Then you could also do bottles.

    IT's made in England by hill, I trust it, have one on order. I also  read it can fill tanks, it shuts  down to cool then comes on. shouldn't build as much  moister as the Chinese it never gets hot

    If it is indeed made in England, not China, I'm sold on this one.  Checks all the boxes for me.  Will wait for some first user reports but encouraged by what I see so far.

    https://www.bisley-uk.com/product.php?i=HIEAC&c=656

    manual: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xt2tz23qtz4alax/Hills%20EC3000%20Compressor%20Manual.pdf?dl=0

    it can fill tanks up to 7 liter / 300 bar

    has auto shutoff

    has auto shut off when it gets to hot but resumes automatic after cooling down

    after finished filling it bleeds the air automatic

    you can set the pressure

    dont uses disposable filter media (i have no informations how it seperates water/oil – i really would like to know)
