If your going to make a all meteal hybrid, then simply sawing off the valve, then welding on a metal union would be alright to do. Just make sure that the tank is de-preashureised before cutting away at it. I' not sugesting your dumb, just that I'd rather you not blow your face off.

Well you go to a hospital and u find one that they are discsrding because they dont use them anymore because of such n such reason and releive them of it and yes its burst pressure is 36000-35000psi.
But i dont have access to a high amp welder and that would be required because the walls are about 20mm thick.
