I'm pretty sure that you can, I did it with my ten gallon air tank, but you have to unscrew it at the fitting where the hose attaches to the tank, the pressure gauge, and the pop-off valve. (you leave all those, you just take the hose off at that end, and replace it with another hose). Or you could cut the hose and put in a hose barb and hose clamp.

I have almost the exact same air tank and thats what I did, I put a regulator and a quick disconnect on it. Its not too hard to unscrew all you need is a wrench. :wink:

Why would you do that if you can just screw in a 1/4" QD anyway?

is this tank going to be some kind of volume chamber? if the tank is pumped to 100 psi, when you go to charge your gun wouldn't the tank and gun just equalize out to 50 psi?

Well, it's a ten gallon tank and my compressor is a small one gallon oilless compressor, so it takes a good fifteen minutes to fill the tank to 100 psi, but in my opinion it's worth it. The brand is task force, from Lowes. http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=p ... lpage=none[/url]

I'll try to get a pic up for you as soon as I can, and I do have a hose attached to the compressor w/ a ball valve and quick disconnect to connect to cannon.
