Difference between norwegian and US paintball tanks?

Hi

I've ordered a co2 regulator on ebay from Asia somewhere The salesperson says that I dont need the CGA 320 adapter, that is only for USA?

So I can use the co2 regulator on my paintball tanks that I've got here in Norway without the adapter?

co2 regulator

this tank

You may be in a bit of a pickle.

CO2 regulators from Asia will have a different standard (I believe it is a JIS standard), and will not normally fit CO2 cylinders in North America that use a CGA320 standard (without an adapter).

I am unsure of what standard Norway uses, but it is most likely a European standard, which will be different from North American and possibly Asian standards (depends).

As long as you selected the correct standard for whatever is used in Norway, you should be fine. As I mentioned, I do not know what the standard in Norway is, but I would assume it would be the European standard.
