just so you guys know i play with 3 to 4 friends on private property, anyways i was wanting to make my alpha black as real as possible so i was wondering if you could move the air line inside the pistol grip of the ab? i have absolutely no plan of an e grip considering the play style but i couldnt find any pictures online

No, you cannot. The sear pins, springs, and trigger would get in the way of the line being able to progress to the valve and powertube.

If you look on RAP4, they are working on an Air In Stock upgrade. You can get an Air through stock upgrade. Changes the bolt, and move the air line to a hook up on the buttstock. Then, you run a remote line to it.  They have a video for the install. You could also go for a flex line. Both are going to cost you. and With the air through upgrade, you will still need to buy a stock that is compatible.

im somewhat familiar with the air through stock, i want a realistic gun so i wanted to get rid of that flashy steel hose on the gun and put it through the grip, im not very interested in air through stock especially with what people say about rap 4, but thank you i appreciate it

Use some matte black or cammo tape to cover the steel braided line, that way it's not giving away your position.

I personally loved the way the Pro-Lite tackled the line issue, but it wasn't conducive to modification the way the new steel braided systems are.
