Colman propane Here

 

2.Where can you buy the adapter from?

Here

 

3.How do you put the adapter on?

Simply screws onto the top of the propane cylinder

 

4.How do you add silicon to the propane?

Put a couple of drops onto the top of the propane cylinder before screwing the adapter on

 

5.Can i use it on a TM M9 with Plastic Slide?

I dont see why not, i ran my plastic slide socom without any issues but beware if its really hot weather then it could be a tad too powerful and end up getting damaged. (its pretty much the same power as green gas so treat it the same.

 

6.Can i use it on a HFC M9 with Metal Slide?

yes

1.What is the best type of propane to buy?

 

I bought colemans twin pack off ebay for £15. Here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Coleman-Propane-Cyli...#ht_1586wt_1139

 

2.Where can you buy the adapter from?

 

I bought a AI propane adapter a few weeks ago, Wolf has linked it.

 

 

3.How do you put the adapter on?

 

Screw it on to the thread of the propane tank.

4.How do you add silicon to the propane?

 

Put 2 drops into the top opening of the propane tank, then screw on the adapter, or put it in the mag itself.

 

5.Can i use it on a TM M9 with Plastic Slide?

 

It's not advised to use propane with plastic slides. 134a is recommended, but I suppose you could, although if it break don't say I didn't warm you.

 

6.Can i use it on a HFC M9 with Metal Slide?

 

Yeah, it'll work fine.

Go Outdoors stores stock coleman double packs for like, £11 or something, might be better value than getting it shipped if you live near one...
