No it won't. You will need adaptors. Check local h/w stores

msnikkistar I don't think that will fit the Pierce co2 kit. The aquatouch one may. Could be you could use several fittings to get it to connect. Who knows.

yikesjason awesome! I might go for that after I run out of disposables. I might have even bought the one that was just up in the SnS if I had known.

Morchaiel Man, I really love this setup.. I can't find any stores that sell Co2 regulators or solenoids that small here in the Netherlands, so far.. I did find a teeny tiny nano Co2 regulator, for about 30 bucks, makes me wonder if it's any good.. Plus, I think it only has the option to just hook it straight up to some hose. If I'd stick a solenoid valve in there' it'll probably leak .

In any case, brilliant setup. I'm gonna keep looking to see if I can find the proper equipment here. Problem is, I don't have a lot of DIY experience, so I'm not even sure where to look .

One question though, where does the Co2 get into the tank?

Thanks for the inspiration though, I probably wouldn't even have thought of making a Co2 system. I'd probably just would have bought like, a Dennerle nano Co2 and place it behind the tank .

jeffvmd I finally installed the CO2 set up since I got the fabco FN32 needle valve and now it works fine.

I do have extra clippard fittings CT4 PKG and 2CPF from that tuonor sent in free. Thanks again.
Oh I also have an extra fabco fn32 needle valve.
PM me if anyone needs them.

Sounds like a plan.

Damian hmmm. I saw that site. Not sure though. I wanted to consider something for the future if I ever do decide to beef up from a cartridge.

yikesjason There is one here for $38. I have heard that in the past this guy wouldn't sell this part to people who had not bought his other products.

Some people on some of the beer forums have made their own either by machining it out of raw stock, or jerry rigging one with paintball gun parts.

Damian Has anyone found an adapter for this reg to run on a paintball canister?

I tried zip ties with no luck. Picked up the smallest hose clamp from Home Depot, but it looks too big. Where can you get 1/8" hose clamps?
