fix for myth reg hitting your frame

This thread is to help those who are having issues with their tank hitting the frame of their DP marker before it can thread all the way into the ASA.



If you are having problems with your tank hitting the frame on your G3 (G3, IQ, G3 IQ, G3 SE), G3 Spec R, Revi, or G4 you need to do the following.

1) Take off your grips
2) Remove the board in order to get to the set screws that hold the ASA in place
3) Loosen the set screws enough to slide the ASA back enough for your tank to screw in without hitting the Frame
4) tighten ASA set screws
5) put board back in and put the grips back on, Done

* = the revi and spec r may not require board removal in order to access the set screws, i have not owned either so i cannot say.


If you are having problems with your tank hitting the frame on your F7, F8, or Threshold you will need to do the following.

1) Loosen the set screw located on the side of the rail until the ASA slide freely
2) Slide the ASA backwards enough for your tank to thread completely in
3) Tighten ASA set screw located on the rail.
4) Done*

*= If you have a rail like my LE F7, you will notice that the front of it is kind of sharp due to the fact that the ASA has been moved backwards. To solve this i simply took the rail off and flipped it 180 degrees. See picture below



If i have missed anything, please post in this thread or PM me so i can fix it.

It's a quite common issue for myth reg and DP marker. But it's such a simple fix to just move the ASA...well it's explained well, Good Job

Everyone at our field uses ninja bottles we never have issues like this I also believe the myth regs use to total threading.

You mean that people need a guide online to crack this very complex mystery?

"Me bubba, me tank not good. I kill tank with hammer!"


God... People are...
...to not aggravate anyone I say: "People are Not used to applying their mind! Most are entirely too used to all problems being fixed by others!"


...and they are morons of course!

give me a break... a guy sold a g3 on ebay. in the description he said he had cut into the frame and sandded it so his tank could screw in all the way.

every once in a while people come in here asking what to do when they have this issue. why not write something up?

I dont know if this only happendd to me but the raps asa lever would rest on top of the myth regs guage not letting the gun air up. I have fixed it now with a reg thred extender but i thought it was odd

You can also fix that with an o-ring, or even better yet, the Ninja clips.
