Paintball CO2 tank regulator

Hello,

Will any of these regulators fit a paintball CO2 tank?

Thanks

You would be better off finding an adapter that turns the threading from a paintball tank into a standard size. Fairly cheap, and you are not limited to weird regulators.

Paintball Tank Adapters

Hope that helps you.

I agree with the above post. I recently added a normal co2 regulator with a pb tank -> co2 adapter to my pb tank setup and it is working fantastic.
Well worth the $15 bucks and later down the road if I want to switch to a 5lb tank I already have the regulator set up for it.

Agreed on the adapted standard regulator, for the same reasons mentioned.

One other thing to consider: resist the urge to go too cheap, it'll cost you in the end.

No need to spend an arm & leg, and bargains are always great, but make sure the bargains are on reliable equipment and not just cheapo rubbish that you'll end up paying the higher price too when you replace it. :shrug:
