    Hi guys I'm currently looking for places that refill co2 bottles. I have the ista 0.5l bottle. I've tried places that refill paintball bottles but unfortunately their adapter treads are different.

    Thank you. I've tried chubb but they say they don't fill these small 0.5lt bottles. I've driven all around trying to find a someone who can fill this cylinder with no luck currently.

    Buy a fire extinguisher with turn valve , will be larger and last you longer.

    Call Eurospirit. They're based in umhlanga. They used to stock these and may still have a fill adaptor.

    Awesome!its good to see a picture. So I'm guessing my regulator will fit onto these extinguisher cylinder without much of an issue. I've attached a picture of the regulator that I have. The brand is called wyin. b61e0e74a05c11927421fadecf1e9e98.jpg

    To be honest I'm not shure.Take it with when you go buy the cylinder.
