It should and I think all remotes are about the same.

ok so it will fit good.:D i found another remote that is cheaper and looks better. What is the purpose of a remote? i am buying it so i will have more mobility, does it serve any other functations? (sp?) Is it better to anti spyphon it? i know you cant use both of them together or else you just suck up liquid c02.

to me, it limits mobility. I dont really like it. It just takes teh wieght of the tank off the gun, and onto your back

The whole point of a remote is PERSONAL PREFERENCE. TO put the wieght of the tank to your back, so it isnt heavy. It sends the air down the hose to the gun, so it will work.

Some nicer ones have on offs on them, some dont.


If you really didnt know what a remote does, there is no point in getting one unless you are to weak for your tank

It helps to give a gun better balance when using a stock, or so I've been told. It just so happens I've been researching coiled remotes since I have a stock on the way; and it appears the 32* is one of the better ones available. I see the link you posted gives no specs or psi rating, and the hose looks very small in diameter. Good luck.

i decided not to go with the remote and I'm getting a hpa tank. EDIT: that was stupid to put an ebay link that you have to bid on. My mistake. i Know it wont give me that many shots but that is okay. I have 2 nine ounces and 1 twenty ounce. It is a pmi steel 68 3000

i use my remote because i can't afford a hpa tank big enough to last mea ll day inthe woods yet. it is better than an expansion chamber when using co2. with air the only reason would be to take the weight of the tankoff the marker.
