View Full Version : Macroline question
02-08-2007, 12:09 PM
I made a foregrip for my MR1, but there's only about an inch of clearance between the grip and the airline thread. I can't find a 90° macro fitting with metric threads, so is a macroline flexible enough to squeeze under the grip and connect to a straight fitting?

Macroline isnt THAT flexible.
Oh ya..this is good to use..

Wow quick replies, thanks!
Here are the pictures of the grip

Hmm...From the looks of it you could but it might pinch the air and not flow smoothly.

I'm lost. I dont know where you want to put it or whatever. Wow. Sorry. :p

The grip is going to press up against the trigger frame, right over the threads for the airline, and the macro would come out to the back, towards the trigger frame. I was wondering if a macro with a straight fitting would fit under there and if not, if metric threaded 90° fittings exist and if so, where I could get them!:confused: Wow that sentence was long.

I think there is metric 90 degree ones.
02-08-2007, 12:53 PM
But do you think a straight fitting would fit under the grip? cause I cant really find 90° metric ones around here, it would be a lot easier with the straight one
02-08-2007, 12:55 PM
Yea I think the actual fitting would fit, but i dont think the macroline would fit without it pinching the air flow.

ok thanks for the help

No problem..I'm only 1 PM away if you need anything else. ;)

this might help..
You should be able to fit a metric to standard adapter and 90*, which is what I'm guessing is Taillo link,even though I can't get the link to open, If you have a problem let me know, I can run down to the local pb store and get one for ya for a couple of bucks and mail it to ya if you can't get one local.
***Edit-link opened, offer still stands either way***

Whats that foregrip made out of? I made one out of wood and just cut a little groove in the back. That might work for you. If you want pics, lemme know.

the foregrip is a fiberglassed foam core. I ordered a thread adapter and a 90, i'll see if it fits and i'll get back to you all on this.
thanks for the help
