Default CO2 or HPA small bottles?

There was some discussion among my gang when I brought up my MR1 with CO2 adapter. Many things are unclear to us and I was wandering if you could help me to clear up few things...

I have "classic" CO2 adapter like this one:

This system has a drawback that changing the cartridge is rather slow, although faster then on Piranha USP. Major concern is that in order to be silent, I have to activate it (and test it) before the game. In cases when I didn't shoot any balls or quite few of them, almost full cartridge is wasted.

So, I have following questions:
- is there any adapter that enables faster cartridge reloading? I thing I saw one that does not require screwing, but some sort of clamp?
- what's the smallest refillable CO2 bottle and its price?
- what's the smallest HPA bottle and its price?
- what are the dimensions of above bottles? any choice of slimmer bottle?

My intent is to use it for scenario games only

Thanks in advance

smallest co2 is 3.5oz
smallest hpa is 13ci/3000psi

they also make drop-out changers for 12gram cartridges where you unscrew it and the empty cartridge falls out the side instead of taking the cap all the way off.

While searching for tanks you mantioned, I run into this thread on pbnation with comparison pics:

Does anyone know of any 12g changer that does not screw/unscrew?
