Naw, yo wouldn't get nearly the same pressure that PB tanks get filled up to normally.

If you have to ask the question, don't mess with compressed air unless you wouldn't mind possibly meeting your maker. I doubt you have a 3000+psi compressor anyways. That's what you would need -

Imagine the nails you could drive with a unregulated nail gun running at 3k or above....

Air compressors that fill tires, run air tools and such produce no more than 150 psi..a Spyder runs at 800!! The size of the cylinder does not matter, it still will only fill your tank to 150psi.
Paintball cylinders are filled by special high pressure compressors that are much more expensive and far more dangerous to operate.
