How many out there own one of these? Wondering if they are worth the money or stay with the hand pump.

I have one, only used it 2-3 times as I don’t shoot much, I have a 4500
Carbon tank but with the impact and it’s 480cc bottle it doesn’t give a lot of fills, Also no way I’m going to pump the impact or anything with a larger tank and higher PSI.
I suppose if you have a something with a small tube and lower PSI a hand pump would be fine.

Having said that there are other similar units that are less expensive than the Nomad.

I have an Air Arms S400 and but I hate pumping. I’m not a young man anymore.
Thanks.

Not a young guy any longer either, Not planning on selling it, check around you can get very similar ones for a few hundred dollars cheaper.

If you're in no rush you can check out the prices on Aliexpress. They have several compressors on there.

Yong Heng is a good value for the money. I have about 3 hours total in this compressor and just did a first oil change.

I have the New Warrior compressor and really like it. Have been using it daily since Mid March.

This is what I have. I went with the additional filter as the air had an 'oily' smell to it. The additional filter with desiccant really did the trick, and the air smells much better.

The main gripe i have is the water cooling. I fill a bucket with ice and water and I get a good 7-10 mins before I have to shut it off and cycle the water. However, it will fill my 4500 psi tank to the brim with airy goodness and keep me on the firing line for hours. I've only got - 1 - fill on my tank with it so far. Not been out much with the ranges closed and social distancing.

Really itching to blow some steam off now, after this day in dictatorship history.
