Any remote should work. The tank should have a regulator to keep pressure in the line below 800psi. The tank output should not be 3000.

Why are you running remote? People usually shoulder the tank to provide stability while firing. In general, the purpose of a remote is to prevent liquid co2 from entering the gun, but you are using CA so that is not a problem.

I have the omega with collapsable stock, I like to shoulder it when moving and the tank is awkward against my bicep. 3000 is tank capacity, sorry about that.

I was wondering the same thing. I want to run a remote to my A5 so I can have a stock on it without issues. Let me know what y'all think! It needs to have an ASA adapter with a quick-disconnect or something similar. Not hijacking here, just wondering the same question.

Ok, the purpose of the remote line is NOT to keep liquid CO2 out of your gun...it would just move up the remote anyway.

The purpose of a remote line is to take the air off the marker, letting you acheive a tighter stance, it's good for tucking in tighter around walls, bunkers, etc. People that say they can't switch hands with one just don't know how and complain, i use my Mini with a remote ambidextrously all the time with no problem.

Now, as to which one:

I like the Ninja ones with the slide check. I've used it, a Pure Energy, and a JT, and had equal results, I just liked the fact that my Ninja one came with the slide check. The Ninja one is pretty durable, I bought i tused at the same time I bought the JT one new and the JT one crapped out already after a year of use and abuse in the woods.

Either way, just check to see if you think it's going to be long enough for you, I'm a larger framed guy, and like I said, I have no problem going off hand across my body with my remote.

they all last about the same length of time. make sure you get one that can move around well, you never want to get caught tunnel visioning because you cant get your line to the other side

Back in the 90s they were marketed as an option to increase consistency. The bottle is mounted vertically on your back, and there is 3 feet of coiled hose between the gun and tank. That acts as a heat sink to flash any remaining liquid to gas before it hits the gun.

I'll concede that point. It will make it less likely that liquid co2 will get into your marker as long as you have your tank vertical. I have seen some people put their tanks sideways on molle vests in order to make their remote more comfy to them, but that will push liquid co2 into the coil as well.

Well played, Bill Nye...

I wouldn't get a remote line. They tore up the reg on my tank and always got twisted up. I had mine get caught in some brush once and I got shot when I was trying to untangle it
