quick fill adaptors to buddy bottles?

Postby InTeRcEpToR » Fri Nov 17, 2006 3:27 pm

seen this i know a few of you have had this done?

NOTE.

Some companies offer a service fitting quick fill adaptors to buddy bottles, these are tapped into the base of the bottle. On no account have this type of work undertaken, or purchase a bottle that has been modified in this way as it will substantially weaken the bottle making it potentially lethal and invalidate any guarantee.

just looking for a new gun and came across this?

I think that it depends how it is done, and who does it I know there are brisk opinions on both sides of the fence, but I can Tell you 2 things. I would never have a Rapid without one, and never have anyone do the work but Allen Zasadny. I Have 4 Rapids and have had them a long time, they all have the Quick Fill Adapter and I have NEVER !!! had a problem.

Just my .02 cents on the subject.

I spoke to Van at airhog. IMO probably knows more about air-bottles than anyone else. He told me that the quick fill on the Rapids are safe. And that the bottem of the bottle is the strongest part. And the sides of the bottle being the weakest.
