Can you fill a fiber wrapped tank with co2?

Remember when Smart Parts sold 68ci fiber wrapped co2 tanks for the old shockers? Was that tank manufactured differently than regular 68ci n2 tanks? Would it be safe to install a co2 on/off valve on a 68 n2 tank and fill it with co2?

Don't do it. It was shady as hell to do it back then, and worse now. Since most markers are getting great efficiency on HPA

The only reason I'm considering it is for the old shoebox shockers I have... and some nostalgia. I realize that there are safety thresholds with things like this, but I was never sure if the marketed 68ci co2 tank skated in the gray area.

I would suggest a rather large tank then. Hell a 114ci 4500psi. Can even do a large drop forward, that is nostalgia for you

There were hybrid tanks made that were fiber wrapped but had a mixed co2/hpa valve. I just recently saw one at my field about a month or so ago. Confused the fill station worker for sure.
If it's a hybrid tank then it's okay. If it's another brand and is not rated/meant for/advertised as such, then do not do it. It becomes a large safety and liability risk.

Those Shocker tanks didn't have regs, just on/off shrader valves. They were also reverse threaded, they can't be used on a normal ASA. I didn't know any of that until I bought some old Shoeboxes and one of them came with it.
