Do you have a remote line because then you don't need any hose just screw in the male end of the qiuck disconect straight into the expantion chamber.

I will post you some pictures of what I did.... ( I will edit the post with the photos and the measurements. )

Edit: okay forget the pics. If you ordered the 45 deg elbow and the metric male to 1/8 female you need a 3 inch hose....Those tend to be hard to find... If you have a 90 deg elbow you can get away with a much longer hose... 5 inches even (stock MR2 hose is 6 inches). This is with the Trinity MR2 AK47 mag, if that is what you got.

thats the only company that makes them for the mr2 that i know of...and i did get the 90 degree elbow things (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=350181199853)...and i also got this adapter
(http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=390041608538)
so then could i just get away with using the stock air line???

RAP4 makes one too... was just checking... If you use the stock hose it will be a tight fit and you will need the opposite adapter (male 1/8 to female metric) ... you might also need to file a bit of the rail that runs down the back of the mag if the fit is tight. A four inch hose will be very close.. maybe too tight but 4 1/2 (if you can find one) or 5 inch is perfect. I set mine up just like you are planning to before I found the female palmer stabilizer on sale and hooked that up instead.

Tip: If you are using straight 1/8 hose use teflon and hand tighten to where you want the hose to line up with the ASA off the pistol grip, then do half turns on both sides (don't over tighten!) to get the hose to line up and get the ASA back to where it should be.... if your don't do this your hose might kink slightly... (looks bad and impeeds air flow...)

This (http://www.palmer-pursuit.com/cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10&products_id=17) is what you want if you want to use the Sypder stock hose.... the links you had are the same as what you had before...

well, thanks for the help from everybody. I got my expansion chamber today, and got it installed. if i get another piece of braided line with 1/8 threads, i will need the adapter i have posted links to. the expansion chamber has 1/8 threads, therefore the stock line will not work. if i use the stock line, then i will need the adapter that sonik posted a link to.

ok, just another update, to help others that may need it, you need atleast a 4 inch long braided line, and you would be better off with a 45* elbow coming out of the "mag"(if using a 4 inch line), as opposed to a 90* (im switching to the 45)...if your using longer than a 4 inch line, then either will do...and as stated before, if you plan on getting a new line, you will need an adapter with 1/8npt threads on the inside(female), and the "spyder" metric threads on the outside (male), if it helps, the links i posted on page one are what you need.
