Sodastream to paintball adapter.

I'm filling up "refillable" Co2 capsules and airsoft Co2 shotgun shells. Sadly ALL local shops have stopped filling Co2 bottles.
Mailing any pressure-canister in this country can lead to it being seized and destroyed. And anything other they just utterly destroy.

Anyways. Sodastream is quite affordable option and most big markets sell em.

Now i just need the adapter. I bought one adverticing it was for paintball but it was wrong threading to my fill-adapter, it did fit the SS-bottle. HPA and Paintball Co2 bottles fit my fill-adapter.

Just about every country has their own "term" for the threading on both ends so i have no idea what i should be going for...
The one with the wrong threading cost sub 10 bucks so around that price-range would be awasum.

So please, help out a n00bie here, link me an adapter with the right threading. Ebay, Ali, or an EU retailer.

i think most of the mods were to put a paintball canister onto a sodastream, not a sodastream onto a marker. I've never ever seen one to go the other way around

Oh noes...

Plan B.

What are the threads of the Co2 bottle called? As in, size. I'l try to look for an adapter using that.

My recommendation would be to skip the sodastream entirely and get a commercial co2 bottle from a welding gas supplier, and they will also have the right fittings to attach your fill station to it.
I like the smaller bottles like they use for soda machines, in the US they are the aluminum 20 pound trade size not sure the equivalent over there, but they are usually portable with a convenient handle.
This will last longer, be cheaper per fill, not waste as much gas as when the tank gets low, etc.

This,

2 things though, you need to make sure the tank has a siphon tube installed so you are getting co2 LIQUID into your paintball tank. Sometimes they are called "dip tubes"

Or, if you get one of the smaller tanks you can just flip it upside down to accomplish the same thing

You will still need a co2 fill station which, chances are will run you around $50-70 and a scale for weighing your tanks

All told, you are probably looking at a price range around a decent HPA taco before you can get co2 into one of your bottles so I have to ask, is there any reason you are sticking with co2 over switching to HPA?
