    Default POLARSTAR Owners Thread

    With a growing number of forum users making the switch from AEG to the Polarstar Fusion Engine, I thought it would be a great idea to have a Specific Polarstar only users section.

    This will help anyone who has recently purchased or may purchase the system in the future. Anyone who owns or uses a Polarstar Fusion Engine is invited to post up how he runs his equipment or any advice and recommendations for Polarstar related products/gear.

    I, myself, am interested in how people setup their own tanks and air lines with their gear, how someone might go about building a fill station, or generally what local places may be able to fill a 4500psi HPA tank.

    look up paintball fill station... cost like 30-40 bucks, get a scuba tank, go to a scuba place, have them fill it up, place on the adapter for your tank, wala. instant fill station. specialopspaintball.com look for the tank pouches.. back when I played paintball, this pouch would sit in the back end near the bottom, attach a remote to it, and extend it under ur gun... put a custom sock for the remote as it has a habit of attaching to trees and sticks and so on.

    Never had my coiled tubing snag on anything...but when i switched to straight line everything reached out and grabbed me!

    I agree with fix on the scuba tanks. I used to run with two, and cascade my fills, with one tank Doing volume fills and the other topping off.

    The PBC Shop has a fill station.

    It is better to be a good example, than a horrible lesson.

    As the original Polarstar NCairsofter, I have been fielding my Fusion Engine for a year now, since I recieved it last April. I have tried out 3 seperate tanks, 2 types of air rigs, and countless hours of ammo testing and fielding the system.



    Currently, I run the following Equipment:
    Air Rig: Redline Airsoft DEVGRU
    Air Tank: Ninja 90ci/4500psi
    Battery: P* mini 7.4v Lipo
    FCU Placement: Stock or Grip
    Ammo: .32g BioShot BB
    Weapon: M4A1 Lower (Fusion Engine), MK18 Upper, M4A1 Upper, SAW Belt-fed Upper


    I made a pouch for my tank that could be mounted on the back of a Molle vest or on my belt.
    Lately, I find it more comfortable on the belt.


    I'd love to see what all the other P* users have Pioneered!

    Yes... originally I did put together my own Air Rig but I like the DEVGRU line much better.
    If you are interested in building your own, Paul's other Forum, ClassicAirsoft.net has a great many resources and experienced users to help.
    I found someone's old $90 Classic Rig and set it up for the Polarstar. All in all I probably spent as much on it as the DEVGRU rig but it had coiled macro line and 2 regulators so I wasn't a huge fan.

    I'd be interested in Rob's new SLP rig with coiled line if it didn't require me to buy all brand new SLP tanks.

    You dont have to buy new bottles, You can just get the SLP regulator and replace the high pressure regulator on the bottle. I did that with both of my bottles, and will do it with my third bottle. Greg at PBC did one bottle, AmpedAirsoft did the other. I think the regulators cost 50 - 60 bux.

    I tried to buy a ready made SLP bottle from action village paintball, but those jerks cancelled my order after a week of waiting...no communication or reason given at all!
