You can search around at various O-ring places, but the AB rings are a very strange size. A few people around here have a few, you might want to place a WTB ad for them. I have one laying around. PM me if you want it, I'll send it to you.

IIRC Warfrat has a bunch, not shure thogh, as its been a while since I got mine and Ive since sold my vectors. As Gabe has said, go down to your local power transmition/bearing supply/O-ring store and have them match them up. One thing I did notice with my Vectors is that unless I ran a regulator the ABs would leak from time to time and there was no pattern to the leaks that I could tell, but never had problems when running at 500ish PSI.

Punisher swore that the o-rings from an empire barrel kit worked. I tried some, and they were a bit problematic, but did the job. I don't know if you can even track those down anymore though.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I found that 14 x 1 mm o-rings work well on my Vec. Found 'em at a pneumatics supply store.

Or do the easy thing, and have someone turn it down for bottle orings

Nothing easy about that. I have handled more than a few of these mods and I have only found one that was perfect out of maybe seven.
The metal is fairly thin and, if the rings are not turned perfectly and just far enough, then the whole part is shot or the thing will leak.

I would rather rely on OEM parts where available. Sadly, I have never succeeded in finding an exact replacement and inexact replacements are prone to a variety of foibles.
