I just received my new HW100SK, and I would like to purchase a fitting like the one pictured below that will thread onto the HW fill probe.
That will allow me to use my pump and tank on both my AA and HW fill adapters.
Any suggestions where to get one? I purchased one a couple years ago, and can't remember where I got it :oops: :lol:
Thanks

That is a mini Foster fitting - most Paintball shops should have them in stock.

A safety note - do not use the brass ones - they are not rated for the pressures that you will be using - you want a steel one.

give accurate dimensions of the fill probe and I can make you a one piece probe/adapter.

:shock: Whoa! That is a very generous offer Walter. Let me see if I can find a steel version of this fitting locally first. If not, I just might take you up on that. Thanks!

Hey Pumpmaster,

the 'standard' foster fitting that is typically used is a 12MP, which is a 1/8MPT (male pipe thread) to the quick disconnect, as seen on this page of foster's website http://www.couplers.com/images/catalog/ ... htThru.pdf

You would then need to put on another fitting to go from the 1/8MPT to whatever your HW fill probe is. My guess is that your fill probe has a female BSP (british standard pipe) end. It may be possible to find a single fitting that goes from the foster quick disconnect to a male BSP, but I doubt you'll find one in stock anywhere, and it would most likely be very expensive.

Over the years I've tried finding the 12MP in several places, and prices can range dramatically (from $5 to $20 for a single fitting) In the end, I found that Master-Dyne in Mississauga http://master-dyne.com/ to be a good source.

This is the probe (front/center) I received with the rifle. Any idea if there's a male foster fitting that has a female end that would match this?

diameter at orings as well if you like the seal those provide.
I make them from SST.

Here is a easy way to deal with your many pcp needs:
http://www.best-pcpfittings-quickcoupli ... uplers.asp

These people ship to Canada and both their hose and quickdisco work very good on my equiptment. Very Good quality.. Shipping time a week. Price is better than US places eg; Air Hog, and you do not have to pay VAT; which sometimes cover shipping.. But if you can get it at no Cost; that is even better..
So; shoot Safe..

Thanks for the link. Fortunately for me, Voltar1 was able to custom make exactly what I was look for, at a very reasonable price.
