Don't know if this has been posted yet...

Someone on another forum sent it to me and I think it's pretty cool.

My reg is adapted to a hydraulic quick connect and can do 500 psi output max. The reg itself cost $250 though...

the co2 regulator sold at lowes runs off of standard paintball CO2 tanks. so, therefore, you can run it off of a 24 oz tank if you want to.......

I was at Lowe's yesterday, and they go up to 125 psi, I think. The regulator is massive, basically the size of two fists put together.

I posted this a while ago asking if anyone had used it. Several people had. Here is the thread: My thread

Also see: Spudlings thread

It will run off any paintball tank that I have found so far. This is a really high flow regulator, which demands size. This reg will run a framing nailer at 5+ cubic feet per minute (which is the air flow of a nice air compressor). Lots more flow than your standard palmer or paintball reg. Size is a detriment, but with the nice belt loops and a strap you can make it tie down nice and it works well for moving around. I am currently building a paintball grenade launcher for scenario games and going to use on of these on it.

Trying to figure out how to make a SCUBA first stage regulator work for portable charging station. If only that pesky job thing didn't keep eating up all my time...

Just for the Aussie's out there....
Sorry if this has been done till dead....
Brunnings has a similar model...
Done by OZITO (and we all know what that means??... 3yr replacement warranty's!! YaY!)

It is also designed for "tools", yet seems to come with a much larger cap tank...
If in that pic the tank is attached? If so the OZITO unit has a tank approx 4x the one pictured...
The unit I believe is $149 AU. The unit is the same set up but the tank and reg sit is a supplied back pack...
Canister's cost $25 I think...
Not sure of your exchange theory... But then again it wouldn't be the first time i've recieved a product with no details...
All I did was hide the Co2 bottle's cause a guy was trying to open the valve! Frickin' idiot... (he was not a gunner investigating just a idiot about to blow his head off)

(After readin other posts.. I can see that you have done this to death... yet no one seems to have tried it cause of the cost... Good thing I work there so it shouldn't be a problem... I mean our customers need to know the specs... don't they? LoL)

Not back at work for another 2 weeks, but will rip one apart to get some pics/stats up of it when I can...

Cheers..
