haven't seen a piece? I think you may need to buy a whole new regulator, check williamsbrewing.com

hey, thanks for the info.
I found this.
http://www.williamsbrewing.com/BREWE..._P1791C148.cfm

But what i need is a piece that will push down the Paintball tank pin to allow the CO2 to come out. My tank attaches to my regulator, but I need something to press the pin down. Hope that helps.

BTW, Orfy you're pics didn't show.

"I noticed that when the paintball canisters were filled, they used something called a Universal Fill Adapter. It screws onto the top of the canister and has a knurled knob at the top that, when spun, depresses the needle valve and dispenses the gas."

That would be it.

Why go online? Help support a small business.

I picked mine up at the paintball supply shop for less than $9 after taxes .
What are you going to do? Buy it online for $7.50, pay $3 for priority mail shipping, and wait a week for it?

check your local gas supplier, they get hounded by paintballers, and can usually dredge up a name of a shop close to you. BTW, the piece you're looking for works great. I use it for cheaper c02 fills, and as long as your joints are tight, you won't lose the gas. Good luck.
