CO2 cylinder question

Just found this online. It's got the CGA320 valve, so it should be fine, correct? I'm looking to build a system for a 40B.

Technically looks correct. I would make sure you have a way to support it, since it looks quite a bit skinnier compared to a standard tank a prone to tipping.

Something else to check before buying is the refills. How do you plan to refill? Some do take the tank and have it refilled but then there is the waiting as well as it often get much more expensive at those places. I like having a standard size tank and go to any welding supply to just drop the tank and pick up another. I find it quicker and the difference between 5,10 or 20 pounds of CO2 is only about a dollar. (5-$11.03/ 20 12.08) You might want to run through some pricing on what it might cost to get a 4 pounder refilled in your situation.

That is actually extremely cheap. I just found that a place right by my house refills and is cheap so I am happy you posted this. However, as PlantedRich said, make sure you can have it filled as so many places just exchange.
