If you have any updates or corrections please PM me or post a reply.

WOOT - Google map with pins in!

I have recently discovered that calor gas often do CO2 bottles and it might be worth giving your local store a ring if there isn't anywhere listed local to you. Don't forget to let me know if you come up trumps :)

I've tried to group regions together according to the below map, however as the list is getting longer it's probably easier to search for towns near you (usually ctrl+F will bring up the search in page box :) )

Other tit-bits of information

Dave - I brought mine back without the horn. I was advised that when filled, without the horn, if it did accidentally go off it could take out the side of the car. Ok, there was still a plastic loop to stop the pin coming out, but still, food for thought! I'll be bringing it back with the horn on next time.

None that have been tried and tested. There is likely to be somewhere you can get them done, have a look through yellow pages and ring round a few places. If you find somewhere then let me know and I'll add it to the list.

The best outlet in Edinburgh, Forth Fire Protection Unit 9B Bonnington Industrial Estate Newhaven Road Edinburgh 0131 553 5608, is the most helpful business I have ever dealt with and is a great resource for the members. I dropped in an empty FE and 7KG Bottle at 9am and asked for them to be filled, stated I was in no hurry, and 2 hours later a phone call that they were ready! Filled, taged, safety caps fitted, doughty washer supplied and all for £25. Other business should learn what customer support is all a about from this man!!!!!!

Would be worth checking with your local paintball sites. Those who run their guns on Co2 may be able to fill your bottles and most will charge a small fee. ;)

Hi Paul,

Can you let me know the CO2 services they offer (eg sizes and do they have to send away or do they do it in house) also the prices.

I'll add them once I've got that info. (I've never been and didn't even realise they did CO2 refills)

Cheers
Helen
