    As a way to bipass the high cost of AF HPA tanks, and as a matter of interest for people who have c02 AF guns, and paintball HPA tanks, id like to find out if this works.
    On a paintball gun, the HPA tank and the C02 tanks ( the same kind used on AF guns), fit into the same threading, and air/c02 is released the same way. Because a paintball HPA tank is filled too 3000 psi, and regulated to 800, couldnt a tank be screwed into an AF c02 adapter, and fired normally, as if it were a c02 tank?

    Sorry if this has been gone over, couldnt find it with a search.

    Thanks!

    The HPA tanks for make getting a good head position due to their diameter.

    JR2120:

    Not quite the setup you are talking about.

    Custom built gun. 4500 psi, 68 cubic inch tank. Extra tall scope mount to see over the fat tank. Gets 60 full power shots @ 60 foot pounds energy. It uses a custom built valve with 5/8 – 18 threads.

    Joe has done something like that also with his stock AF condor, CO2 adaptor and regulated HPA tank (a carbon one IIRC).

    This would be a good tank for the airforce co2 adapter.
