The ASA/drop that came on your marker is replaced with a rail. The rail is mounted on your frame then the Max-Flow is mounted on the rail. Someone who uses a rail setup should pop in any time know to give you the full low down on it.

Your worse prob isn't that the tank isn't fitting right now, it's that an LP tank won't operate a HP marker -

I'm always mystified by cousin 'It'. Never quite sure if he's a person, place or if it's 'Thing' in a box -

Let me just say:

1) Most all Maxi's were LP. Unless this shop just happened to find a rarity the only way you'll know for sure is testing the output or if your MR3 jackhammers continually you'll know for sure -

2) Since the Maxi already has a macroline(not micro) fitting, all you'll need is a dovetial mount or drop forward for the bottom of the trigger frame(MR3 has inline mounting holes) for the Maxi and a straight Spyder metric threaded macroline fitting to screw into the vertical hose adapter that's screwed into the VA ASA inside the plastic handle. And of course, some macroline(not micro) ;) Though a little more drop than you might like, here's a drop (http://www.ndzpb.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=catalog.prodInfo&productID=93&categoryID=2) made specifically for the Max-Flo for $10 -

You can prolly get the metric macro fitting by calling Kingman and ordering it. I doubt you will find it elsewhere. If you scroll down here (http://www.sundragonpps.com/paintball_mr_lp_conv.html) about 3/4 of the way, there are other suggestions of ways to attach lines to the VA ASA as well -

"440 or 80 output"

drago, i think you're thinking of the old school max flos! i'm assuming his shop sells the micros, because i cant think of one that sells the big bulky ones.

I just got one of the old max-flos for my 03 Xtra and just need to get some macro line (ordered from ebay). It looks sick on the Xtra which has a chrome eMarker grip that I had to replace the capacitor on. I paid only $40 for the max flo with a second regulator (1 blue and 1 silver), 2 rebuild kits, and a 68/4500 tank with good hydro. I can't wait to get the line because I have been doing a lot of work to this marker to get it working properly. Bought it off ebay from someone that said it worked fine which was not the case :(. good thing is it will be there when the line gets here!!
