Would this fitting be safe for a hpa conversion.

I will be running around 1100 psi with a 1800 burt disk.
I know I can use a heavy hydraulic fitting but compact would be best.

It's made for paintball, so it should be good. Paintball bottles have 1.8k burst disk so the fitting must be rated for that, at least should be! Ansgear is a respected company and I'm sure they would not want to sell something will blow up.

I would go with this one from the same website: https://www.ansgear.com/PSI_1_8_Inch_NP ... nickel.htm

There's a bit more meat on it.

It depends on what the fitting is intended for, there are markers made for lower pressure bottles than the traditional 850 psi output and others that integrate an on-board regulator so it's worth checking.

How about the steel hose. Even the 3.5" one can bend 90deg. I used this 4.5" hose on my QB78 hpa conversation. The hose makes it easy to disassemble with the bottle fixed to the stock.

I plan on using the steel hose and fittings.
My tank will be mounted under the shoulder stock, like a paintball gun.
