Paintball Co2 help?


I was just wanting to post everything on here and get your guys and gals oppinions on what I am going to buy for me setup.
This is the Paintball tank
Amazon.com: Spyder CO2 Re-fillable Tank, 20oz: Sports & Outdoors Amazon.com: Spyder CO2 Re-fillable Tank, 20oz: Sports & Outdoors
v
Amazon.com: Kingman Java Spyder Paintball Gun CO2 HPA Air Gas Regulator + Gauge Drop Bottomline ASA tank bottle: Sports & Outdoors Amazon.com: Kingman Java Spyder Paintball Gun CO2 HPA Air Gas Regulator + Gauge Drop Bottomline ASA tank bottle: Sports & Outdoors
And then this is the needle valve. I think this will work?
Pps Packaging Company 1/4X1/8 Needle Valve 86082 Evaporative Cooler Accessories - Amazon.com Pps Packaging Company 1/4X1/8 Needle Valve 86082 Evaporative Cooler Accessories - Amazon.com
And then the tubing

The diffuser
Amazon.com: Nano Carbon Dioxide CO2 Diffuser - Glass Reactor for Aquarium Tank Plants: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Nano Carbon Dioxide CO2 Diffuser - Glass Reactor for Aquarium Tank Plants: Pet Supplies
Then a suction cup for the diffuser
Amazon.com: Como 20pcs Aquarium Clear Suction Cup Airline Tube Holders Clips Clamps: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Como 20pcs Aquarium Clear Suction Cup Airline Tube Holders Clips Clamps: Pet Supplies
And then teflon tape
Amazon.com: Niagara Teflon Tape 0.5" wide x 30" long: Home & Kitchen Amazon.com: Niagara Teflon Tape 0.5" wide x 30" long: Home & Kitchen
And finally check valves
Amazon.com: Como Fish Tank Aquarium Red Clear Plastic Air Pump Check Valves 5 Pcs: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Como Fish Tank Aquarium Red Clear Plastic Air Pump Check Valves 5 Pcs: Pet Supplies

So is this all i need to succesfully put together a paintball Co2 tank? And i am trying to get this all from amazon please. Thanks!

There are a few threads on a setup like yours regarding safety. The answer to your question though is yes that is basically all you need. But, like I said, read up on the asa type setups before purchasing anything.

the 2 hole patttern is how its mounted to the bottom of the gun grip . the reg has two outlets one for the gauge and the other has a hose . im not sure if the gauge reads tank or adjusted pressure. you will need to change out the hose fitting. also most paintball regs are used around 300 psi or higher . at least on my guns.

yes it can, but not the best way to go. i had a set up i put together with some old paintball stuff , used it for a few months till i got money for better reg and tank . if it dosnt work out well you can reuse most parts. 15 buck for a reg is a good deal . i paid 100 plus for all my paintball regs. if you can tune the pressure down low bellow 100psi it might work out great .
