I got a matheson dsr on a 20 oz paintball with the aquatek adapter and it balanced perfectly too, still strapped it down though. One thing to watch, make surethe o-ring is seated perfectly on the tank. If it isn't, the adapter/reg will shred the oring and your co2 will come out untill you unscrew.

Check it out:

It just seems like I've read so many folks having issues with those cga-320 to paintball adapters. (operator error...) With this, you just screw the paintball tank directly to your reg.

(please forgive my beat-up hands)

Do I need an O ring before you attached this ASA adapter to a paintball tank?

I installed my regulator today. Wrap a yellow Teflon tape around paintball tank thread and screw the whole regulator assembly with asa fitting. About 10 seconds, CO2 hissing out between the asa fitting and the paintball tank thread.
