why is threading on my hpa tank reversed?

i've always had to turn the opposite direction to remove the tank from the max flo. i've never run across another like it. it is no problem, just a bit different. but why?

Are you talking about removing the bottle from the max flow reg? Dont the bottles on the max flows have sort of a pin valve on them? If so, the threading is likely reversed just so no one threads it into a standard ASA and blows every air fitting in their gun to pieces, or at least the weakest one

That is exactly why!

I actually honestly wondered about those tanks and those earlier nitro duck tanks that screw into their adjustable reg. I saw a kid selling one on PBN without the regulator with just the brass pin valvey part and thought "can that kid actually screw that thing into a gun?!

But now I see that they did install some safety features. Thats good.

whoa whoa guys! there is no pin valve. it has an on/off valve. the whole setup came from smart parts with an evolution i got back in the summer of '98.

They added the pin in the valve in later years just for the fact that if you forgot to shut off the valve it would not shoot out. And it helped if the on/off leaked.

K.macocker: the valve looks quite similar.

i see that it makes sense to have the reversed threading as a prevention of use on just any ole gun. it is definately safer this way. thank you all for the input.

on mine both sides it are reversed threaded, so it must have a reverse threaded ASA. I have yet to run across one. I was told this was SP reg when I got it. It came with a parts lot..
enjoy,
Kmac
