    I think that's just showing the standard hoses that Coltri uses.   I sent Coltri an email to see if they would be able to provide a custom hose.  It would have the standard end that they use on one end and on the other I'd want a direct connection to the extended quick release that AOA use for their guns.   Can't hurt to ask I guess.

    I've followed this thread with interest, and previously posted suggestions, along with similar ones by other members. I don't understand the desire to replace the hose that comes with the compressor with a custom piece when all that is needed is a DIN to Forster male connector.

    I'd guess that a DIN to Forster adaptor would be less expensive than a custom hose, but there are additional reasons to stick with the default configuration. 1) For resale value its original condition. 2) In my experience, provided that you use micro bore hoses, a longer hose is much more convenient for filling guns and SCBA cylinders. By connecting a DIN to Forster adaptor to the Coltri/Daystate hose you lose nothing, and gain a nice long hose that allows easy positioning of guns/bottles to the compressor. 3) With this configuration you can use the same micro bore hose to fill your guns from an SCBA cylinder when you are shooting at a match or at the range. 4) The idea that adaptors are potential sources of leaks or failure is a myth. If you buy a high quality adaptor its not going to leak, and will be as safe as the rest of the high pressure system: i.e. compressor, hoses, guns, and bottles.

    You are correct there really isn't need to do this other then it would look a little more elegant and you wouldn't have to have that clunky Din 300 on the end of the fill hose . Now that I have a omega moisture filter between the compressor and the gun or tank even less necessary.   BUT if it can be done for reasonable I'm going to see if I can get it accomplished.   There really is no reason to use what is a scuba fill device for a PCP rifle application .  And no reason why they can't just put another end on a hose for us.

    https://www.nuvair.com/store/category/filtration/hp/personal-filter-din.html    Well it won't let me upload a pic but this is the Coltri filter I got from Nuvair. The Daystate fill hose connects straight into the filter, the filter connects straight into my tank. No adaptors, no micro bore hoses to restrict flow.

    Well it's been a  couple days and I haven't heard a peep from Daystate or Coltri.   This project may die a natural death.  No big deal.

    This is the fitting you need.  Your Daystate hose has two female JIC connections at each end.  This will convert the hose end to a male 1/8 NPT which you can connect to a Foster quick connect that has a female NPT connection.  You should be able to get one if you have a local hydraulic parts store.  Just make sure it's rated for high pressure usage.
