Tank/ASA problem

So i just bought a new etek3 am and i tried screwing my tank in and it will only screw halfway in before getting stuck. I have a pure energy 45/45 and both the threads on the tank and the marker are fine. i have made sure the tank is not being screwed in at an angle. i have never had this happen before with any other marker. if anyone knows wat the problem is or wat i can do to fix it that would be great. thanks

I wonder if the threading in the ASA is a little tighter than normal, and the nickel plating on the PE reg makes it a little larger than normal - the combination of the small female threads and large male threads would obviously lead to this problem.

Do you have access to any other tank that you could try - one that doesn't have plated threads?
