if you take off the front gas thru grip and screw the tank in to were it used to go will the gun still work ???????

it will but if you are using a CO2 tank I wouldn't recommend it, it will freeze up your internals a lot quicker than if you were to run it through the gas through grip, it gives the CO2 a chance to convert from liquid to gas...

Well, if its always down, the liquid co2 doesn't have as much of a chance to get sucked up because its sitting on the bottom.

Co2 as a liquid sits on the bottom of the tank...
When its on its side, the co2 can get into the airline. When vertical its on teh bottom. Ja?

OK i get you now. Pain meds are boggling up the whole thinking process... In essence yeah I guess you would be right... So don't turn your marker sideways to shoot if you are not using the gas through grip :D

Smart thinkin' Hob...why didn't I think of that when I used co2?

thanks guys i might try it

eh ... rather than that ... an antisiphon kit might be better and keeping your foregrip .. a foregrip is better than not having one ... and an antisiphon tank will help a lot also

Well ogglie if you get what I mean, an anti-siphon woudn't do nything if its vertical... We all know that the antisiphon goes up to the top of the tank to avoid collecting co2 on the bottom of the tank. Theres really no harm in trying it vertical....

yeah .. but i was talking about an anti-siphon kit with the bottomline ...

I'd think having the tank in the middle would make it uncomfortable .. probably topheavy .. aiming down more .. unless you like that feeling .. i more like it balanced
