    Posted: 29 July 2004 at 4:14pm
I searched, and found nothing on this other than a post of mine in a thread about mounting multiple tanks, but if this is already a topic, deleted be this thread.

Anyway, have you (If you use Co2) run out in game, and gotten bunkered because you couldn't change tanks fast enough?? (Happened to me in a tournament...) Well, I thought of a 12-gram system that you simply flip a valve to use... No unscrewing of tanks, in case you run out of air in the wrong time...

The system works like this... Get a 1/8" 90* elbow, a 1/8" on/off ball valve (Available from shocktech), a 1/8" to C/A adaptor, and a 12-gram adaptor, the kind that allow you to use a 12-gram in a C/A adaptor... Put it together with a little Teflon tape, and fit it so that the elbow goes into a spare 1/8" NPT port (My Spyder has one on it's underside) and the rest  of our little contraption runs in a straight line in which ever direction you decide. Just make sure the 12-gram adaptor ends up at the rear of this monstrosity...

Then, when you run out of air in a tight spot, flip the on/off valve to open, and use the few shots wisely.

This may or may not work... I thought of it in five minutes... also, you could use a 3.5 Oz. Co2 tank, or a prefilled 4 Oz... I was just going for a small, light, and sleek design.

I'm going to try it as soon as I get a little spare money, unless any on ye'all point out that it won't work. If it has been done by anyone that you know of, could you tell me?

Criticize my idea away... It may help me think of a new design...

*Edit* If I do this and all, I will put up pics... For now, can anyone point me to where I can get a 12-gram adaptor, the kind that allow you to use it in a C/A adaptor?

I saw a few ways to attach two tanks on this site, but a spare-air-in-the-case-that-you-run-out-under-fire idea is what I was thinking. Like I said, small, light, and sleek.

P.S. Sorry my description for assembling was terrible...

Yeah you hook a remote line to your gun, and get some sort of T-shape valve thing, it's pretty big, and it has 2 connections, one for each tank. i saw one a few days ago.

Come on, people. Post your likes/dislikes about the idea. Tell me what should be changed. I think it'll work as is, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

*Edit* I also need to know where the cheapest 1/8" NPT to C/A Adaptor (Verticle adaptor) can be found.. i have found alot, but all for around $20, and that sounds really high to me...

Well, I've almost managed that before... I think dying of 12 grams of Co2 would be fun...

I found all the parts that I would use.. Note that I use a 'Street T Fitting' because I have a guage that I wish to mount...

Qty.|  Fitting
1----1/8 On Off Valve fem-fem Heavy Duty
1----PPS ASA adp.
1----1/8 NPT Street T
2----1/8 NPT Female Female 90
1----CCI 12 gram changer

T O T A L S
Sub Total $59.10

I got this all at http://www.palmer-pursuit.com/catalog/fittings.htm . Shipping is like $7.00... I just gotta wait 'till meh dad gives me the money he owes me...

Also, the 'Street T Fitting' thingy could be used to mount two tanks, if you took the 1/8" to C/A adaptor off two remotes and screwed them directly into it...

Any suggestions would be great right now.

As I have said before, my goals are small, light, and sleek... I may need to add functioning to this, too... If I wanted to add 2 tanks, I would. But the cost of that is high... I'm on a very tight budget... Barely paying for this...  I could add one of those prefilled 3.5 Oz. disposable Co2 things, if I needed more than 12 grams, too.

I liked the micro-CA... They probably sell for the price of my gun, though.
