Default Paintball Tank and Regulator

I bought this regulator:
Paintball tank C02 beer regulator @ Williams Brewing

Now I need a 20 ounce paintball tank for the CO2. Will any 20 ounce paintball tank fit this regulator? Or do I have to buy this overpriced one from Williams Brewing (just to be safe)?

20 OUNCE PAINTBALL C02 TANK @ Williams Brewing

Thanks.

All paintball tanks are the same threads as far as I know.


Not to bust your balls but just in case anyone else is reading this and wants to do the same thing, you can buy an adapter to adapt a paintball tank to a standard regulator. A standard reg is like $40 and the adapter is like $15 I think. So $55 instead of $85 for the fancy reg.

You can pick those tanks up at Walmart these days. Any paintball shop will have those lying around. See if you have a website dedicated to local paintball. People have those laying around that they would be willing to practically give away.

I picked up one of those regs because I had a 20ozer sitting around. Works great in my Igloo Icecube.

Like PhlyanPan said, you do need the special ASA on/off valve adapter. You can use *ANY* ol' regulator with a paintball tank as long as you have the on/off adapter to depress the pin on the tank.

Here's what they look like:

I use something very similar that I got from Keg Connection. I found a 24 oz. tank at WalMart the other day and when I went to get a fill it was the same price as the 20 oz tank.
