    Default Daystate / brocock foster quick fill?

    I'd like to know if the foster quick fill adapter from a daystate will fit a brocock bantam/compatto? I know daystate owns brocock now and there are a more than a few common parts on some of the rifles, air bottles/Harper slingshot system to name a few, so I'm wondering if there's a chance a could fill a brocock bantam form a friend's tank that owns a daystate MCT?

    Oh boy, I hope he doesn't find this thread!!

    Thanks and cheers

    The system is a standard, meaning there are no variants. So any gun- Daystate, Benjamin, Brocock or otherwise- that has a foster fill port can be filled by a tank or pump with a foster quick disconnect fitting.

    I beg to differ. Not all foster fittings are made the same. Standards ... aren't.
    In particular, I've noticed a difference between brass and steel fittings. When using a brass male on a female steel (or vice versa), they don't seal properly and you get a ton of air leaking out of the join, which is both annoying and potentially dangerous. Maybe I've used crap fittings, but I've seen this more than once.

    IMO, get couplers from 1 supplier and stick with them.

    Standards are one thing, quality is different I suppose. You'll always get someone making shitty versions of stuff- ie not to the intended standard.

    Bottom line is the daystate one will work with the brocock one.
