    CO2 Tanks?

    Anyone have a source online to get co2 tanks and a cheap adapter? Not sure if I'm looking in the wrong place or if adapters really are pricey but I can only find them at local stores for like 50 bucks which seems crazy.

    Airgas will have everything you need

    Tanks are re-certificated and filled by professionals and it makes a very big difference (you do not want an overfilled paintball tank exploding in your house, been there done that).

    Regulator will run about $30, tank will vary on the size you don't buy the tank just exchange it all the time.

    E-bay, homebrewing shops, welding shops an airgun/paintball places. $50 for what size? Airgas is who refills/exchanges mine. Non-food grade CO2 is cheaper.

    E-bay has 2lb paintball setups cheap. An you can refill them cheap. But is you have more then one rack go big or go home.


    Good luck!

    I use a regulator similar to this one.

    My tank I picked up off of craigslist from someone getting out of home brewing. More than likely you aren't going to be able to buy a filled tank online but you can get empty ones. When getting the first tank from places like airgas the initial amount is going to be higher because you have to buy the tank. Subsequent refills are much cheaper. Don't buy a fancy pretty tank because most of the time when you need a refill your tank will get swapped for a prefilled one with a newer certification.
