I was looking on the internet for a 1/4 BPSS Male to a Male 1/4 BPSS
I could not find one at any airgun store, or any scuba store in the Western Hemisphere.


All the PCP guys out there. I have just came in contact with a Hydraulic shop here in Surrey.
Apparently all the fittings you need for hooking up to a tank or to a pump, can be bought at a Hydraulic shop!
I walked in at a store on 189 Street in Port Kells, they had everything you can Imagine. They have all the fittings you need for your Foster connection, Din, everything. The best thing of it all, they are super inexpensive, for the 1/4 BPSS it was $1

So don't get ripped off go to your nearest Hydraulic store.

Hope this will help all the PCP guys out there

Biagio

Not to be a Kill-Joy.. but as stated on this Forum more than Once..Be Safe
That is.. any fitting should/can, handle/certified for 2-3X.. 3,000 psi Air Pressure or in some instance 4,500psi.
Just saying, Not hooking up anything if it is not Certified.
Sometimes the price is not worth using a said Part.
Just an opinion.

"I could not find one at any airgun store, or any scuba store in the Western Hemisphere."

I dont know much about PCP plumbing but I wonder if there is a reason for this. Guy at work almost succeeded in fitting a 3000psi gauge and regulator to a 7000psi Nitrogen system. Said he had a hell of a time, "Nothing seemed to fit but I got it figured out". Lucky for him I stopped him before he managed to blow his head off.

As to being Safe...Forgot to mention a Site for PCP charging Certified Parts.
Here is a 1/4 male to a 1/4 male BSP fitting. The cost is 2.00 pounds UK.
http://www.bestfittings.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=172
Also available are bonded washers that go between fittings; so no Plumbers tape is needed and no question on how much to tighten, to not have leakage:

While ordering, may need a connector Set for your other PCP gun probes/filler nipples.

Ship to Canada is not a Problem and Price is very Good.
