CGA320-Paintball adapter:How far do you screw it in?

Got an CGA320 - Paintball adapter, I got some space left and was wondering if it was a problem?

Would this leak? Using the basic set up of Regulator - washer - adapter - ? O-ring? - Paintball.

A picture is worth a 1000 words, you get the point.

It's CGA320 stock with a paint ball adapter. Forgot to mention, I put on electric tape to keep the bolt from scratches. I seen pictures where there is extra thread left and I seen some where it's completely screwed in.

I'm not sure but I think it should be ok, it's seal by the washer.

As long as you put the washer in and got it good and tight, you'll be fine.

What I'm confused about is the fact that Aquatek states to use "thread tape" to ensure a seal.

It's basically the same adapter just like all the other ones.

Anyways is this the order? I don't want to buy a paint ball tank and have it empty since you can't shut them off like a cylinder.

Regulator - Washer - Adapter - O'ring or thread tape - Paint ball tank.

Ya, but no tape. The paintball tank should have an o ring on it.
