Airsoft Innovations - Propane Adapter

I was wondering if any of you know the width of the prob on the adaptor? I have an adaptor that is for filling up a paintball mine and am wondering if its the same size. I dont have any gbb guns or any green gas cans to check or I would do it myself.

Thanks

Lucky for you I happen to have both a ruler and the adapter on my desk.

Because I used a ruler, my measurement is likely not 100% accurate (though it is relatively close).

The diameter I measured was 2.25mm.

The word is propane. Pain is only involved if you snort it then light it.

Greylocks,
sorry about that I guess I just keep thinking about being shot with an upgraded gas gun using PRO-PAIN so maybe thats why I spelled it that way. at least I spelled it right the first time. Or it might be because I am from the USA and our schools suck! who knows.

oh I would not advise snorting propane have you ever smelled the stuff...

Actually, propane has no scent. There is an additive that causes the odor so that a gas leak would be detectable.

Actually Jeremy_V, the correct spelling and pronunciation IS "propain".

And it smells great. It's full of vitamins too.

Vitamins? Forget the pills I'm going to Home Depot tomorrow. The usual American spelling is Propane. Pronounced the same as propain but spelled different. Is it possible that we speak different Englishes? I know the UK spells it colour and we spell it color.

new tri-pack of colemans green tanks,i found that removing
the adapter from the tank has the brass part sticking in the
seal,not a big issue but,has any one noticed this new propane
really stinks compared to the other tanks i have had.

We spell colour as colour here too. In Canada.

Propane is always spelt just like that... propane. The only exception is when it is loaded into a GBB, then it becomes Propain. Get it?

Perfectly normal insofar as I am aware. Just pull the probe out of the seal.

Helps with a bit of silicone oil too.
