What do I need to buy... (Adapters)

Hey folks. Getting back into paintball after several years and I have a question.

I have my own scuba tank that I bought and get filled from the local scuba store. Now I need an adapter to fill my bottles off of. I have two bottles:

1) Pure Energy N2 Compressed Air Tank (48ci/3000psi)
2) Empire 20oz CO2 Tank (Backup)

Now I know I can get a simple Yoke adapter which can fill my 48ci/3000psi tank from it. But what about my 20oz Bottle that doesn't have the small side adapter built in?

So what should I buy to fill both? Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much.

You can't fill a co2 tank with compressed air, hence why it's a co2 tank..

I would recommended not doing any filling if you don't know what you're doing..

And this makes sense to me. This is why I ask questions. I'll humbly correct myself now. Thanks for the reply and help.

You can't use the Co2 tank for compressed air. It does not have a regulator, and is not intended for compressed air.

That's your fill station for high pressure air tanks (sometimes called nitrogen tanks)

dont fill CO2 tanks with that

Just go to your local paintball store or field, and get them filled there.

Just drop the Co2 all together and get a cheap HPA tank. You can get them pretty cheap on here.

Do you have a nice big shop compressor ?

If
So I would get the AGD shoebox compressor that Tom Kaye invented to fill your scuba tank

I would sell both tanks and put the money towards a nice 68ci fiber wrapped tank to go with your scuba fill station

Meh for the cost of that thing........plus the cost of a normal air compressor unit to go with it, you could fill your scuba tanks at the dive shop for years. Not really worth it unless you're out of driving distance of any shops to fill your scuba tanks.
