12L Diving bottle on e**y costs £70, in a shop £230.
Only problem, all these diving diving bottles do not have a valve like one used on air-gun diving bottles.
Can they be converted from diving diving to air-gun diving bottles and how does one go about the conversion?

They do a Air Gun Valve , can not be used in Water
so only needs testing every Five Years
Which is fitted to a Faber 300 Bar 12.2 Litre Bottle
I have been known to do a good deal on this Delivered to your Door
i dont understand any of the air tanks stuff, and was thinking of just gettin a pump for my S300 (arriving thursday! ) could someone give me a list of what i need to use a divers tank, thank you
just tank and gauges beacuse after using that pump you will soon by one
As far as I am concerned there is no difference between a 'diving' bottle and an 'airgun' bottle, 'cos I actually use my 'diving' bottle to fill up my airguns. If the bottles on **** haven't got a standard diving valve, you have to wonder what they've been used for.
There are two types as far as I know, DIN fitting and A Clamp fitting..
The DIN has a female screw that you screw the hose into and the A clamp hose fits over the top and tightens with a hand screw knob..

hi guys i am new to bbs
my name is steve [95th]
could some one help with some info on air bottle tests
do they stamp the date of test on the bottle or the date the bottle will need
to be retested on it.also allso how long are tests good for.
A Clamp is Made for 207 & 232 BarOriginally Posted by ChrisW6
Not Suitable for 300 Bar
Din Gauges are suitable for 300 Bar
MDE Air Gun Gauges are more compact and only need testing every Five years
Against every 2- 3 years for other types , A & Din
Check out Precharge Section on
Basically They was made for Diving
300 Bar are more for Air Gunners
20 & 232 are Cheaper as thinner walled than 300 Bar
But 300 Bar holds a lot more Air Under preasure
Not forgetting that most filling stations charge
the same regardless of bottle or Bar load.

Biggest 300 bar bottle you will get is 12 litres. Mindful this bottle contains enough energy to be considered a potential bomb, I strongly recommend 'short-cuts' are avoided.
Buy second hand from a trusted source, or new off of clubshot. His price includes delivery to your door with all the right bits. I don't think they are £200 new, but if they were, they'd still be worth the money.......
"Surface use" only, tests are good for 5 years. A dive shop may not refill your kit if the 'test' is over 2 1/2 years old, and it uses an underwater valve like the 'A'-clamp as they can't be sure it's for surface use only. Another reason for using the MDE system. People should see this kit as a worthwhile investment. It isn't throwing your money away.
Use either a club pump to refill, or a dive shop that gives you a proper 300 bar fill. When you compress the air initially it warms up. [Some shops fill in a tank of cold water to reduce this.] The fill will cost you £3/£4. Probably less than the cost of the journey to the pump. For that reason alone you need to make sure you get the full fill.
I used too go to Divercity in Potters Bar. Cheap but when the tank cooled, I'd gotten a 280 bar fill. I go to Letchworth now, and get a full 300 bar.
To be good, one must do good.
thanks for the info
found it a great help
