Co2 Fill Stations

Kind of put my fill station off on the back burner when school started, but as I would like to have it functioning instead of just collecting dust, what's a good fill station kit?

High Power CO2 Refill Station
I have one of these

As well as a Pure Energy one. Neither of them hold air and quite frankly, I'm not willing to spend any more time or sacrifice any more orings trying to fix them.

I suppose I'm just looking for a list of what I need, and what you would suggest. I have a hanging scale for fishing that is what they use at the field here, so that'll work fine? I also have a bulk Co2 tank with the correct valve adapters for the fill station. Anyone able to offer any insight on what else I need?

It's not RAP4. I don't know what it is to be honest. It looks just like that one from RAP's website though.

Talked to the technician at the field, he said Ninja rebuilds are $110?

Any basic fill station kit with two levers will work if it's been put together right. They're not as easy/quick to operate as the ones like you posted, but with practice you can get fast at using them. A huge advantage of a simpler fill station is they don't have complex parts, they're cheap to buy and cheap to replace parts on.

I'm using some non name brand fill station adapter I bought off of eBay. It cost me like $20, and so far I've had few issues with it besides the initial learning curve of figuring out how to use it properly.

As for other accessories:
* Scale. One that measures ounces. Preferably one that can tare/zero out the weight of your co2 bottle. A fishing scale will work just fine if it has ounce measurements.
* CO2 Bulk Tank that is SIPHONED. Make certain it has a siphon tube or you won't be getting proper fills.
* CO2 Burst Disks. Just in case you overfill a bottle and it pops the safety burst disk.
* CGA nylon washer or permaseal attachment for the CO2 Bulk Tank. Reduces leaks where the adapter attaches to the bulk tanks valve. Nylon washers wear out quick enough. Permaseals will last quite a long time.

And if you dont have a siphoned tank, you can just lay the tank down and get liquid co2 out of it. I do this all the time when i borrow tanks from my dads welding stuff and it works great :P

Brass Eagle used to make one like that I think. Maybe that's what it is? Still, it's one of the nicer fill stations out there so I'd try and get it going. If not, ebay it (or sell it to me ) and just grab one of the 2 ball valve ones. You'll probably end up with a few extra bucks.

That's exactly what I do, except we yank the co2 tanks off of sprayers at work.
