No, you cannot fill it with a regular compressor. Most compressors produce 110 to 150 psi....
A HPA tank fills to 3000 psi.....
It requires a special compressor engineered to fill Scuba/HPA tanks :)

The difference is the output pressure from the tanks regulator. Almost all markers work with HP tanks....Angel markers being the exception....

Even if there low pressure guns? (The VS seris)?

low pressure guns use their own regulator to regulate the 800psi from the tank down to it's operating pressure, so yes, even the vs series. LP tanks are only good for Angel's that have a regulator that can't handle high pressures

Right... and wrong. The older Angels only need part of the spring pack inside the regulator flipped to make them accept HP tanks.

BTW, if your compressor did fill to 3Kpsi, then you'd need a 1/8" NPT fill nipple (female connector), and whatever adapter to put that on the hose (I think the hose is 3/8", I can't remember for sure though).
