You do not need teflon tape between the CGA320 nipple/nut and the CO2 cylinder.

A nylon washer is needed though.

I am afraid that particular ADA product may never be carried in the US again now that ADG is no longer distributing. I understood it came with a special adapter for use on CGA tanks, that ADG was having custom made for that reg (it was designed and intended for use with metric tanks). AFA doesn't carry the speed reg, and if they did you would still need a custom adapter (which was never included from the ADA factory, it was something ADG added on thier own).
