    Well, its a common thread in the paintball industry, but I cannot find a Tap or die to save my life!

    The threads are 0.825"-14 NGO (National Gas Outlet) right-hand male or female. I cant find either.

    Id prefer a bottoming tap, the threads are about a half inch deep.

    Does anybody know where to find one of these taps?


    Also, how would one go about tapping such a hole? Would it need to be automated (cnc) or can it be done by hand?

    All these standard but oddball gas valve threads are satisfied by taps carried in stock by major tap manufacturers.

    You could bore the thread on a lathe in an hour.

    I know this topic is a little old, but the right thread for an ASA is CGA 320. It will be hard to get a tap. A tap that will work for an ASA would be 1/2 nps. It is slightly off, but will work good, and is more common than CGA 320.

    There's no such thing as an NGO tap because there's no such thing as an NGO.
    NGO and National Gas Outlet is tossed around a lot and referenced as a spec
    that is well maintained like the CGA. Fact is, like Santa, aliens, ghosts &
    goblins - the NGO does not exist.
