I mod'd my MR1 so that I can only use the 88g CO2 tanks and a remote line for anything bigger.

Well after messing with it some I'd like to make or have made a dummy 88g tank so that it has a quick release fitting in the back to use a remote line but keep a tank on the gun to keep its balance....

Anyone ever see this ? Would it also act as a large expansion chamber ?

They are very thick at the butt of them so it should have no probs threading it..

I hope thats a good thing ? Well the Air Source to the adapter holds the pressure just fine, I'd permitly seal the adapter to the 88g tank, drill and tap the butt end and install the nipple.

Use the 88g tanks at home. Get to the field I pop in the dummy tank and remote line and shoot.

All this came to be as with me sitting in my wheelchair the stock setup hit me in the gut , I wanted to move the tank as far forward as possible and up, no drop forward can do that.

I was going to just screw in the remote line to the ASA but the gun looks great with the 88g tank, Sooo why not put a Q-connect on the tank ? Its plenty thick enough on the bottom ?
