The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: Airsoft compressed air different from regular?

I bought an AIrsoft C02 tank for my minigun, but I was trying to use it for refilling bicycle tires. The attachments I bought are close but don't work. Is airsoft air it's own standard?

Usually the connection hoses/nozzles are different. Heck, even between that tank and a paintball tank, it may be different.

Any pictures of the connection nozzle/hose?

Bike tires are either Presta or Schrader valves. Co2 tanks can have differing valves depending on manufacturer. Is it the screw thread type? Some bike pumps have adapters that might fit.

Scuba places can fill the tanks up so the fitting must be pretty standard
