I have a McKinley gas lantern which is about 15 years old and takes EN417 type 200 pierceable gas cartridges. These are slightly different to the more common campingaz 206 cartridges which don't fit.

I'm struggling to get hold of the type 200 cartridges, because it seems they've been phased out since the new EN417: 2012 came into practice. I've found cartridges which comply with EN417:2012 and look the same as the type 200, such as the Coleman 190 GLS, but there is no mention of type 200 on the canister. So I can't be certain they will fit my lantern.

Does anybody know which modern canisters are compatible with type 200 devices?

Thanks in advance!
