ive heard that they are for sale at welding shops...dunno why they would be. im sure that you can get them off the internet/ebay.

also, if you want something a bit more portable you can buy a 5lb(or the massive tanks) and have it set up so that you can attach a 16oz bottle and refill that. you can then have a fill station, and yet you dont have to lug it around.

i just did a quick search on google and confirmed that welding suppliers have them and the one that i found was $35.

It depends on the place your filling at, paintball shops will charge ALOT, from my experience. Also, I did the thing the people are doing in the grand theft retard pic in your sig. Except it was with wagons and bikes

To refill a 20 oz tank it cost you $20? A high price here is $4, typically you can get $2 fills.

CO2 is used in Inert Gas welding, hence being available at welding shot.

to get all the way up to 20oz refils at a paintball place it is normaly about 2 bucks

I have a 50 pound tank i use with my team
i think its somehwere in the $30 range to get filled...
it just cost allot to get started


to fill co2 tank

you neeed a scale... not a problem
a fill station set up... we built ours but if you dont there about $70
and a tank... there sorta pricey... i dont rememeber how much mine was but im sure a 5lb tank would be alot cheaper

Ya, so I didn't buy another refill ( waste of money ).
Another refill of balls ( how many the gun can hold ) was like around 10. So I picked up balls off the floor. :P

I get my 5lb Co2 Tank filled for about $8.00 (welding supply).

To fill my Paintball tanks it usually costs about $.25 an ounce.

I usually fill my tanks at paintball games because they have a $5-10 fee for all day and since I have about 259 ounces total in tanks and at $.25 an ounce its about $64.75, so its a good price when filled at games.

If you are going to fill your own tanks I recommend getting a 20lb or 50lb Co2 tank with siphon. Fill Station (about $40 for a good inexpensive one) and a digital scale.

I have a 50 pounder with siphon and a weight watchers scale hahaha... but you really dont need to buy a fill station... you can make out of fittings... its just a tee, one side has a ball valve that goes to air. the other has a ballvalve then a steelbraded hose and a tank asa.
