Question thread pitch of tank threads and where do i get the tap?

Hi,
What is the thread pitch of the co2 tank valve part that screws into the gun? Where can I get this tap?

I have some vm-68 VMX vertical adapters that need retapped to clean out the burrs. My tanks won't screw in all the way and these tanks are pristine.

It's a 1/2NPS tap. Not NPT--it's a straight pipe tap, not a taper.

Imported NPS straight pipe tap

For tank threads, you'll need two--a starter, and one ground down for to bottom the threads.
