    European and British refillable cylinders all have threads of 0.860 inches OD and 14 threads per inch. That's very near 22mm.

    Disposables are smaller although I don't know what size exactly.

    22mm is standard. Why not just use a Fire Extinguisher?

    Check out the thread: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=266

    Don't be scared of the disclaimers at the beginning of the thread, be scared of the horror stories :lol:.

    Lots of people use these in the hobby and I've not heard of one horror story. If you're sensible there is no more danger of using this system than using a purpose built cannister
