AA burst disk?

Do the AA regulators need the burst disk to safely function? I don't have any on me at the moment and I it is leaking out of the hole. Can I safely plug it with a 1/8" NPT plug?

No the burst disc hole is not 1/8 sized. It is slightly larger and will not safely seal with a 1/8 part.

And yes tank valves and regulators should have the burst disk. The idea is that if the tank should ever become over pressurized the burst disk will blow causing the air vent out safely. Without the proper burst disk(s) the tank could rupture if it becomes over pressurized.

Why haven't I seen it on other regulators?

And will a standard burst disk from a tank work or do I have to use a brass one retained by the threaded ring?

^Wow. Looks like I gave up and tossed the reg in my gear bag. Forgot about it until I put it on my gun at the field today...

So, can I use a standard tank unified burst disk? Or do I have to track down the individual piece burst disk?

EDIT: To clarify, this is for an AA Vigilante HPR, not a tank regulator.

Yes you can use a standard unified burst disc if you like.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

I take it that a 1800 psi burst disk will suffice? It seems to be the lowest pressure disk currently made.
