High Pressure Air. It is usually from an external rig. Pretty much a compressed air tank.
To add on to this it is a bottle of some sorts that usually is made of metal of fiberglass, which can be placed under pressure. So in a way it is a mini version of a air compressor, but with a set amount of air in it.

Alright so I knew that, but how in the word do you make it attach to a rifle?

would you take a gas sniper rifle, put on psi regulators, then make a cable attaching to the tank or what?

As my pistol instructor says "If you have to reload you better be shooting at an army" Which means if you need more then one shot then you need to practice.
Joking aside I would get the long mag and tap that, its 29 rounds of HPA death. Also do not go and drill and tap all of your mags keep at least one you can run propane on, because you never know. Also buying and tapping 7 mags would cost you close to $300 and thats the sucky kjw mags. One tanaka short mag is 60 shipped ( the cheapest I found).

Your best bet, keep a speed loader, count your shots and reload when no one is around, and when you do reload have your pistol very very close buy. I cant count the times I have gotten shot when reloading.

Also with the above method of on/off you have a very loud popping noise when you disconnect the coiled hose, to put it on the next mag.

Sometimes you can avoid the popping noise if you have a shut off switch near the quick detach nozzle. When I used to paintball (I know... I know... disgusting...) I ran a remote line to my marker. It had a valve on the tank itself, but also a small piece near the nozzle that slid back and forth that could be used to cut off the pressure at the gun end. If you have that, turn it off there, then fire a blank shot if you can and you shouldn't get a pop when you disconnect.

Most likely you wont need to fill it in the filed, you talking thousands of shots before you run out of air. Also I have seen rigs that use co2 that fit in the stock of the gun, or HPA rigs that fit in a small utility pouch. But all of the pros completely out way the cons, for this mod.

I haven't but there is an idea that I just might try! It would be no different in feeling than running a pistol lanyard!!! You Sir, are a brilliant man!!! (When I get the money I will be modding a mag for my M9 PTP and will let you know how it turns out)

People have tried to rig HPA for pistols, not that hard but it would be a pain to have a reg set up for that...

And as far as using a PTP... I have a M9PTP and I wouldn't run HPA. 3000+ rounds, 150ft. with 0.3s on red gas (or off a fresh green gas mag)... it does fine stock. Even the red gas has knocked off the mock loaded chamber indicator and one of the safety switches (on the non-firing side, still functional). If you do run HPA that'll be 2 regs, if you run a gas primary thats 4 regs or a really complicated hose system with a big tank.

If you run CO2 all it would take is one power spike and you'll probably blow your slide off or at the very least damage it beyond repair (since it is a metal slide). Not worth it IMO...

Edit:
As a side note though, if KWA did make a CO2 mag with a fixed reg in it for the PTP I would be on that like white on rice. Since assuming KWA parts + KWA gun = warranty
