A possible suggestion to those of you old enough to remember the Soda Stream It came with a returnable CO2 cylinder and if fitted with a suitable regulator and a flexible pipe it could be adapted as the power source that could be easily got from a selection of shops (Dunnes, Tesco etc)

Sorry mate. C02 isn't a dry gas and the PS needs no moisture at all.
You can get a hand pump to fill your own tanks. A good one costs about £400+ sterling, but you also need an air dryer attachment to remove the moisture build up as you pump it.
You need at least 3000psi to run the PS which is apparantly very difficult to pump by hand once you get beyound 2000psi.
You could by your own clean air compressor but even a cheaper one will run you about £4000 to £5000 sterling!!
But if I win the lotto myself it is on my list:-)

What I don't understand is why someone would go to the trouble, expense and extra weight to use something which can't legally be any more powerful than any other airsoft device?

In all sincerity many products exist that are more expensive and offer seemingly no benefit over 'X' product, but the difference is that you want them. Take the likes of the Inokatsu 1911 - full steel, stupid money, more weight, and 'no extra power'? Nova-builds - serious money, additional weight over the plastic TM-frames, and for what? Again, seemingly no benefit on the surface...but if you have to justify it, the product probably isn't for you

I've owned so many different AEGs and have sunk so much money into GBs, if I could have all that money back I'd be able to but two P* rigs.

you have to chrono with the BB's you're going to use, or otherwise your gun could be illegal. If you chrono with 0.20g's in a P* at 327.001 and then whack in some 0.25g or 0.3g, thanks to energy creep you will have an illegal firearm in-play on-site that has passed the chrono.

You would think at this stage the obsession with getting and running at 327fps every single shot ,would have died jayus ,
Why the need for 40-60 rps at 327fps

Sorry if this is OT, but if you chrono with .2 and then decide to use a heavier BB the FPS/MPS of that BB is going to be less as it it a heavier projectile and thus needing more energy to travel. Have I be operating under a false assumption all these years and do I need to issue an apology to everyone I hit a few weeks ago when I used .3s?

And then you would still have to sink a not inconsiderable sum of money into the ability to refill, if you didn't already know someone with the necessary equipment willing to refill for you for pennies. Which is of course a false economy.
Given how much maintenance that GBBs require - what makes people think that PolarStar will really be that much different on balance? You still have to worry about seals, tanks, moving parts that will simply have a different point of contact for wear & tear, perished tubing, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it, I'm just not sold on it.

Just had a quick look there, they are standard paintball tanks. Any paintball site running HPA will be able to fill one.
