Yes but they;re filled with Compressed Air 99% of the time for paintball. Don't want to inject that into your brew.

I bought two 20oz bottles for $8.00 each this last weekend. (Exchange from Lowes).....

Anyhow the guy there told me they are just compressed air, I'm like uh, "No, it says CO2. Look at the bottle..." Has bold letters "CO2".... pointing to the green diamond of non-flammable gas - No 2.

Just because people use on tools or guns the doesn't mean its air. I think its a misconception. I can see people filling these with compressed air if they run a paint ball range.

I was referring to to Lurpinator post about the N2 tanks. They are used for higher end Electro-pneumatic Paintball guns that cannot use Co2 due to electronics freezing up. Plus it (N2 tanks filled with compressed air) delivers more shot to shot pressure consistency due to not being affected by temperature which is very important in tournament play.
You cannot fill those same tanks with compressed. They are different valves.
See the difference.
CO2 Tank


Compressed Air (N2) Notice the regulator lacking on the CO2


The difference between a CO2 user

and N2 user



Yes co2 containers are filled with Co2.

Bringing this back from the dead. I can't seem to find any of the adapters, regulators, etc. that were referenced in this thread. Have they discontinued everything?

If you have a spare CO2 regulator laying around like I did, you could just pick up this adapter:

I just cut a hole in an igloo for a corny and hooked up my regulator to a paintball can held in place by a bicycle water bottle holder. Works like a charm and keeps my beer at temp over the entire weekend.
