I have a Micromatic Regulator
and a 20 lb. CO2 tank. My goal is to connect them with a high pressure hose similar to this one
, but I wanted to do it for a lot less money. I bought a paintball remote line
for approximately one third of the price.
My problem is that the remote connects nominally to the tank and the regulator; however, it leaks. A lot. The threads on the remote line are exactly the same as the CGA-320 threads of the tank/regulator, but the end of a paintball valve isn't threaded, allowing the paintball tank to seal with an o-ring, where a washer would be needed for the regulator. Also, the paintball remote has a tiny hole to release pressure on the female side that leaks some CO2.
I don't have a washer between the tank and the remote, and I'll try to go pick one up today, but I wanted to check if anyone has had success with this.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
P.S. I realize that, with some different tweaks, I could run a low pressure line in from a primary on the tank to the rest of the regulator bank, but I would prefer to do it the way I described above.
