Gas System Accesories
 
There are many accesories for gas systems, and sometimes many useless threads on them. so i will make a post thats covers them all.

Gas Thru Stock

They are mounted on your bottom-line screws and with a remote attached to your air system. Useful for keeping your gun steady, but are you willing to pay? Not that common anymore.

Shown at the top of the picture, with a P stock in the middle (with a bottomline attached to a built in drop forward) and a plain T stock at the bottom.

Remotes


A selection of remote lines can be seen here.

Remotes screw into you ASA or drop and put the tank in a "remote" location. They come in stainless steel hose and coiled. The coiled is better, because it is more flexible. The remote make for faster snap shooting and faster breaks. They also act as an Expansion Chamber. All or most are tested to 3000psi.


On/Off Adapter

Turns your pin valve co2 or preset nitro tank into an on/off. Adds about 1.5in to your tank though.

This one is made by Smart Parts and is widely available.

Regulators


A selection of Regulators can be found here.

They regulate the amount of pressure that gets into the marker. When used with CO2, they will work best with an anti-syphon tube installed in the bottle.

This is the Shocktech version of the Custom Products regulator - a very good choice for it's relatively low price.

Expansion Chamber


A selection of expansion chambers.

Used for expanding liquid CO2 in to a gas. Although an old concept, very useful for those using a vapour CO2 tank.

The ACI six-stage expansion chamber with it's internal core shown next to it - good quality expansion chamber.

Drop Forwards/Cradles

There are a wide variety of drop forwards and cradles available - a selection are shown here.
Puts your tank underneath the the gun for a more balanced marker. And looks pretty good too. Not as popular as they used to be, and are now generally only used with the longest air systems.

Drop forward

Dye cradle to hold the Air America Raptor air system

Fore Grip

A small selection of gas-thru fore grips.

A hollow tube running up to for verticle adapter, just works as a grip and can get very cold using co2.

This gas thru-grip is made by Adrenalin Products.

Bottom lines and ASA's


A selection of ASA's can be seen here.

Used for putting the tank underneath the grip, using 2 screws. Pioneered by Lapco, and originally used with pump action markers with back bottle ASA's (commonly referred to as a "donkey") to lower the bottle. A hose would then connect the bottomline to the donkey. The modern equivalent of the bottomline is referred to as an ASA (Air System Adapter), a slightly confusing name, as both bottomlines and donkeys can be described by their function as Air System Adapters! Modern ASA's are often equipped with an on/off valve. Works with CO2 bottles and preset air systems.

Bottomline by Lapco.

Modern ASA with on/off - this one is a Check-It Uni Mount.


Macroline/Microline


http://pbreview.com/forums/showthrea...readid=124742A
Cockerkid's post on macroline and how to properly install it.
Plastic tube used for connecting air system to marker as an alternative to steel braided hose. Microline is a small bore hose, macroline has a wide bore. Macroline has more or less replaced microline, as it has a higher flow rate.

Fill Stations


Used to fill CO2/HPA tanks. For CO2 you need a siphon tube installed in the bulk tank to get your bottle filled properly. CO2 tanks are filled by weight, so you need a set of scales to make sure that the right amount of CO2 has been put in the tank. In the case of HPA, your air system will have a maximum fill pressure, and your tank is full when the gauge on the fill rig reaches this pressure. NEVER OVER FILL.


Dual valve CO2 fill station

4500psi rated air fill station to fit a DIN style SCUBA tank.

Stainless Steel Hoses

An alternative to macroline or microline use for connecting your air system to your marker.

A selection of steel braided hose, including a remote line.

Hose adapters and elbows

Items that can necessary for connecting up your air system from your ASA to your marker.

A - Slinky Coiled Hose
B - Hose to Bottle
C - 1/8 Quick Release
D - 90 Degree Elbow
E - 90 Degree Swivel Elbow Push Fit
F - Straight Push Fit
G - Male to Male Adapter
H - Proflow In-Line Filter
I - ASA Adaptor
J - In Line Dump Valve
K - In Line On/Off Tap
L - Microline Kit


Gauges

A selection of the gauges that are available.

The gauge is used to measure the pressure in the marker or in an air system. They come in a number of sizes and styles, and a number of different pressure ranges from 0-100psi to 0-6000psi, depending on what they are being used for.

Large, Ashcroft style gauge.

KAPP branded microgauge.
A smaller version of the Ashcroft style gauge is available, amd is normally known as a minigauge.

Anti-Siphon tube

A tube installed inside a CO2 tank, connected to the back of the valve. The tube is bent upwards, away from the liquid CO2, so that no liquid CO2 enters the marker.

Siphon tube

A flexible tube with a weight on the end, attached to the back of the bottle valve, and designed to remain in the liquid CO2 at all times. This causes the marker to draw and run on liquid CO2. This was used with pump action markers and early semi-automatics to avoid velocity spikes that occurred when markers set to run on CO2 vapour occasionally drew liquid CO2 instead. By getting them to run on liquid all the time, the spikes were avoided and the markers became more consistent. Modern semi-automatics are less tolerant of liquid CO2, and an anti-syphon tube is a better set-up for these.

An unbent anti-syphon tube (brass), and a syphon tube (red) alongside a number of bottle valves.

I live in a small arse town in North Dakota we're talking about 10,000 people, small right? Well we don't have any certified air smiths. Where can I get an anti-syphon for my CO2 tank online? Pbgear will sell them but they require pro installation. You see my predicimate right? :(

LAMANTEthePBguy 04-18-2004 11:10 AM

Well, you might try asking a local welding store. They deal with tanks and stuff like that, and might be able to help you out. If you really think you want to, you could do it yourself. There is the danger that you can screw it up and possibly have a dangerous tank.

Kowz_76 04-18-2004 11:18 AM

10,000 people small? I live in an area of about 1500.

Someone will know how to do it.

Goat Master 04-18-2004 11:28 AM

well it's small for me :P there's no airsmiths here XD

nole16k 04-18-2004 02:03 PM

You can get CO2 tanks w/pre-installed a/s tubes here and here.

forumsk83r 04-18-2004 05:04 PM

but i heard that you shouldnt get a pre installed anti siphon co2? correct me if im wrong

uthanak2323 11-04-2004 01:42 PM

for some pre-installed tanks this is true, but if you read the description on the second link, it says screw the tank in untill the on/off is facing up, then turn it on.

as soon as i get soem money together in gonna get 2 of these tanks from the second link...

forumsk83r 11-04-2004 02:19 PM

haha 7 months old thread

The links go to Action Village, but not to the specific items mentioned - with the age of the thread, chances are that the items that were linked to are no longer stocked by Action Village, so all the pictures and info have been removed from the site.

Remember, necromancy :skull: :wizard: is a sin against nature, and digging up dead threads will result in arrest, :cop: a court appearance :judge: , and banishment to hell, :devil2: to play airsoft for all eternity - LET THE DEAD THREADS REST IN PEACE! :tombstne:

If anyone wants to go through and restore all the links (preferably to a site that doesn't change its stock so regularly), fair enough, otherwise please let the poor thread die quietly.....

LAMANTEthePBguy 06-01-2005 01:36 PM

This thread is in the ultimate sticky, so don't go too hard on him Uziel :P

Uziel Gal 06-01-2005 04:16 PM

Yeah, I noticed that later on - mainly because I thought it *would* make a good sticky if the links worked had a look, and there it was (actually I just wanted to string a sentence together with Smileys for a laugh! :D ).

Sadly, that probably means it's up to us to redo all the links..... :(

Oh well, I guess I have nothing better to do this weekend - though I had planned to have a plow through WGP. Aah, another week won't make any difference I guess! I'm sure Spyder and UTLM are doing a fine job! ;)

That take you quite a while to dream up this stuff, eh?

btw - paintballfirst.com is a good resource where things don't change much.

Uziel Gal 06-01-2005 10:41 PM

What more can a bored Police employee stuck in an office think about, with PBR having supplied such I fine selection of Smileys! :D Yes, my life sucks, and I need more to occupy my mind..... I am desperately trying to get the new job I'm after! :(

Where possible, I'll probably link the pictures to the review section, as that is about the most stable resource I can think of.

Slacking on the job... :finger:
