MaxFlo System

I have an older style Smart Parts 3000psi MaxFlo System with drop forward for sale or trade. I got this in a trade in which this was on the marker. I have no use for it and can't test it out. "sdlm" suggested that I check the asa and sure enough I found out this has left handed threads. Finding a bottle that would fit this may be difficult

Post Here Then PM Me!!!!

I WILL NOT SHIP FIRST

PRICE
$20 shipped and paypal'd

Is that the kind that accepts a tank to get screwed into it?

You should be able to test it, your 4500psi tanks are not outputting 4500psi. (only if you can screw the entire tank with reg into the maxflo reg)

What is the fill nipple for? Ive never seen a fill nipple placed on a screw in tank style max flow reg. Just wondering is all.

Honestly since I know nothing about this as I got this in a trade which was on my marker. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I believe the fill nipple is for a screw in tank (bottle) that does not have a reg on it. On the opposite side of the fill nipple is a gauge so I am assuming that it shows how much air is in your tank.

IIRC Smart Parts first max-flo systems used a left-threaded asa that screwed the tank into the Max-flo so that bottle size could be changed quickly and/or that the normal ASA on gun models could be made the same way and just tapped for different threads.

This also acted as a sort of on/off, since the max-flo didn't originally come with one IIRC. Unfortunately most of these are left-threaded it might be difficult to find a tank that will fit, some are unknowingly sold as carbon fibre co2 tanks, when they are actually meant for this system, as all the co2 tanks should have normal right threaded ASAs.

If this one is threaded for normal asas, then any old tank with a pin valve installed could be used however. To the seller: the first thing I would see is if the asa portion is left or right threaded.

You are correct. This was the first style of HPA max flows. The valve that goes into it is quite unique. It has a pin valve, on/off and is left handed threads. IIRC these had the larger bottle threads than most of today's tanks.

Thanks for the info and I did find out that the asa is left threaded.
