Keep in mind that on the VS3, the asa is also the regulator. If you upgrade the asa and drop to those Custom Products ones (and, yes, they will fit), you will need to add a regulator inline somewhere. Usually, that goes where the foregrip is, but that means that you also then need to get the Trinity regulator adapter.

EDIT: Also, to remove the stock regulator/asa, first unscrew the left side grip, then take battery out of its location. Under the bottom of where the battery goes, there is a set screw. Unscrew that enough so that the regulator/asa assembly will slide off of the dovetail.

As far as hoppers, you'll hear a lot of good things about the Fasta here, obviously. There's two schools of thoughts about hoppers; one, buy what you can afford now and upgrade later as you get more into the sport/upgrade markers. Popular hoppers would be evlutions and halo hoppers. The second thought is buy the best, and spend the money once. Hoppers like the Vlocity and Vlocity Jr. would be recommendations for this idea.

Thanks to both i went on the trinity site and the regulator page wont show up so if anyone could send me a url for that it would be a lot of help, thanks
and no one told me if a cp flame drop forward would fit on the vs3 no screws or hastles

Here is the link for the Trinity Regulator Adapter:


You can also see it on Action Village's website:(although they say out of stock)

As far as the "foregrip" - if you are speaking about the rubber piece, I remove mine by placing a soft cloth around it at the top and just untwist it counter clockwise and it will come right off (use a soft cloth so you dont scratch it).

If you are speaking about the "front block" or "vertical adapter" which is the piece where the gauge screws into then you must remove the trigger frame first and then the front block will come out. Be careful because there is a spring in there.

Check out page 20 of the manual that came with you marker for a excellent parts diagram and label for every part in your marker.

Have fun!

The flame drop actually fits? I heard you had to modify it a little to fit, but who cares it worked for u. Can you give me a site for the drop I've been wanting to get one.

07-11-2007, 11:06 AM

That will fit fine as long as it is a dovetail kind and when you say tube. Do you mean the macro line. You could order this cause your stock stuff is not going to fit.http://store.customproducts.us/index.cfm?fuseaction=catalog.prodInfo&productID=74&categoryID=0 and every thing you need is in that kit to hook your asa to the reg.

damn i didnt wanna pay for that but oh well... well thank u
macro line gotta rember that name...
