View Full Version : Air through side
09-16-2008, 04:01 PM
I'm thinking about getting a remote for my MR1 and if I do I want to do an air through side project so that the remote connects to the gun at the bottom of the grip and I can take off the drop forward and steel mesh cable. Please post pics along with detailed instructions and all the required parts/tools.

I might do that one but I was really looking for the one where it comes out of the bottom of the trigger frame or rear grip.

yeah, you have to use microline because macro is too big.

have we ever heard back about techsteves gun if it worked and how well it did

Sort of but I would like to keep the front grip on.

you still can keep it onsince the only things holding it on is the screws

I did this the other day just to see what it would look like, I bet it could use some tweaking, but maybeit could spark some ideas. I have a macro 90 coming out of the gun where the air line goes - and a piece of macroline runing down through the grip panel into the grip. I milled out the bottom of the grip to fit a fake 40 magazine, so there is a big hole for the line to go through. I hooked up my remote through that and I was done. I will say that with the remote hooked up under the grip - it was a bit awkward, because when you add the length of the fitting, the quick disconnect, a slide check (depending on what kind of remote you have), and the stiff part of the remote line - all that is pretty long sticking out the bottom of the grip. Here is a paint picture of what I did - I didn't take any pictures when I did it, and I switched it back right after i did it.
As for keeping the front grip, you could keep it on, but you would have to get a brass 90 to attach to the gun, then when it is attached, mark where a macro 90 can screw into that though the front grip, drill a hole in the front grip big enough for the threads of the macro 90 to screw into the brass 90 - pic:
now you can run the macro where every you want - you can even do this on the other side, it really doesn't matter. If you did what tech steve did, then you cannot use the front grip, because his micro fitting is in the way of one of the screws that attach the front grip and the size of the fittings will not fit inside it.
I hope this may spark ideas of other people or yourself about how to accomplish what you want. I myself have an air through folding stock, so my air lines take a different route, but this can be done.
