HPA Tank Fitting Question
 
I'm completely new to HPA Tanks, and I was just wondering, does what you see in the pictures look normal?

Example 1:

Question: Why are the threads from a CO2 Tank and an HPA Tank different?

Picture:




Example 2:

Question: Why doesn't the Tank fit all the way into my CP ASA?

Picture:




Any intelligent advice would be appreciated, Thanks in advance! = )

it should be fine if it's tight and you have no leaks

Affirmative.....The threads or pitch on both tanks aren't different. The length of the threads and neck itself are different -

As long as the face of the reg/valve is flush with the bottom of the ASA, it's screwed all the way on the ASA. If the ASA doesn't have an on/off, sometimes screwing an N2 tank all the way on(or off for that matter) is a PITA. The threading on both my Crossfire tanks were so sharp I had to sand them a little to dull them so the tanks were easier to screw on ASA's w/o an on/off. I use Dow33 on the tank threads and ASA threads to aide turning the tanks on as well -

When screwing the tank onto any marker w/o an on/off, I first screw the tank into the ASA till I feel the pressure release. Instead of turning the tank on from that point, I hold the tank firmly then turn the marker onto the tank. You have more leverage turning the marker onto the tank -

Intellectual enough? - :cool:
