    Hi

    I've just taken the plunge and ordered a new gun (Steyr LG110 Hunter). I understand this comes with a 232 bar fill adapter but I have a 300 bar bottle.

    What does this mean in practical terms? Am I going to have problems filling? Will the adapter just not fit?

    Not a problem I've encountered before so any info or advice appreciated.

    Cheers

    Darren

    The 232 bar adaptor is too short to fit to the bottom of the female threads on a 300bar bottle, it needs to fit all the way to the bottom to be able to seal.

    An adaptor to bridge this gap is available to bridge the gap, you can also knock one up on a lathe easy enough

    Well, not having a lathe to hand (am I in the minority here), I'll have a hunt around for an adapter.

    Cheers

    harry peston does adapters... not sure how much they are.

    my local dive shop plays by the book and wont fill if it has an adapter inside the fitting on a 300 bottle... i've seen 1-2 stuck in, but i seem to remember seeing one with an allen key so you could remove it with ease.
