I have a bulldog 357 and I'm looking for a compressor that someone would have instock today
Anyone want to take a swing at this?
What do you need an air compressor for?
I was thinking this exact same thing....... a compressor for a 357 Bulldog???
PS: welcome to NWFA!
I deep clean my guns with an air compressor
Gets grime out without full tear downs and oil back in.
Harbor Freight if there is one near you.
I guess i should have Goggled it BEFORE posting.......
Are you meaning a 3000 psi air compressor? I believe there is a place in PDX called Ollie's(?) that is the air rifle guru.
Am i correct with "Ollie"???
Air rifle, so air rifle topic not firearms...
He gotta fill up that air somehow.
I have several here at my shop but the cheapest would be in the 5,000 area for a gas powered 4 stage Mako. I sold a trailer mounted system with cascade tanks last year for 12,000 to a paintball park operator near Denver. Most guys just get an old dive tank to refill from but you have to convince a dive shop that you are not diving on it or have a PADI card.
A 5-6 hp 30 gal single stage can be had at Lowes, Home Depot, pretty much anywhere that sells tools. I see smaller portable units at pawn shops all the time.
A two stage (needed to run an HVLP gun) will run you about triple what the "regular" compressors do.
Smaller table-top units can be found at craft stores but don't have a tank and won't give you the psi you probably want.
Check the voltage requirements or else you'll spend all day flippin the breaker.
I don't think those single stage ones will get anywhere near the psi needed.
Only way I've seen it done is a special hand pump or scuba tank.
Nope.....takes 3 or 4 stages.
You would be lucky to get 150 PSI out of those.......he wants 3000.
I didn't see that part. I don't even understand the OP...
He didn’t explain it well..........

If you can wait a couple of days Amazon has several hand pumps that will do 3,000+ for not a lot of money.
Even a cute little 110V that says it will do 4,500 psi for under $300
High pressure takes horsepower and time, even with a 10 HP motor, it takes 10-15 min to fill a scuba tank. That is why we use large cascade systems, they will fill tanks instantly because of the large volume storage (that can take an hour to fill) I cant even imagine how long it would take with a hand pump or small compressor. My primary dive boat had a 30 HP electric with 4, 6’ X24” cascade (storage) tanks.
DING DING DING, we have a winner folks!!!
So... I'm guessing the gun mentioned in the OP is not a Charter Arms Bulldog. That's where I was lost.
