Unfortunately, I can't be much use, because I'm not very savvy about US suppliers (living in the UK does that), but perhaps you could look for a replacement 12g quick change at a paintball parts store?

They're not too common these days, but you should be able to find something. You might need to get some converter to go between threads, but those should exist.

as long as there is liquid co2 in the tank the pressure will be around 850 psi, depending on the temperature. and yes when you screw the adapter all the way in it opens the tank.
in your 1st post you said 12 grams now you are saying 16 grams, which are you going to use?

the 16 gram has threads so that it screws directly into the adapter opening it as it is tightened down. the 12 gram does not have threads and will need a quick change adapter to use them and open them up.

no the 12 grams have threads on certain website and i think the 16 grams adapter is just an plumbing reducer.

if they have threads they will not fit the quick changer. and the 16 gram adapter does open the tank, i know it only looks like a fitting but i quarruntee that it will open them.
