I am thinking on purchasing an expansion chamber, and I was wondering why do you need the vertical adapter? I've seen some pictures or 98 Customs with an expansion chamber and I don't think there was a vertical adapter??

The vertical adapter move the inline hose to the front forgrip and gives the expansion chamber something to screw into.

OK, but is there a vertical adapter on this 98 Custom?

Also, is there a difference between an expansion chamber and an inline expansion chamber?

I've seen both on pbreview.com and the inline one looks easier to install and it doesn't have a vertical adapter, it screws right into the fore grip on the 98 Custom

Since you obviously believe that DrunkDriver is incorrect, you should immediately do the following:

  • By the expansion chamber of your dreams
  • Remove the air line from the valve of your marker
  • Attach the airline to the expansion chamber
  • Remove your handgrip
  • Replace it with the expansion chamber

The vertical adapter is inside the gun, you can't see it. It screws into the bottom of the valve, and comes out where the foregrip is. That is where the expansion chambers you see are screwed into. Unless you have some custom made expansion chamber with a male end that will screw into the valve directly, yes you WILL need the vertical adapter.

All of that is hidden inside the body of the gun, that is why it looks like there is nothing there on the pictures you see.

^^THANK YOU!!! THAT WAS THE ANSWER I WAS LOOKING FOR!!!^^

I just wanted to know where the vertical adapter goes... So I guess when I install it, I'll have to strip the whole gun so I can get inside it to install the vertical adapter?
