Other options for mounting a tank on the Milsig Mk III

I am looking for other ways to mount my tank to my MkIII.

I want to keep the tank on the gun, but I am not happy with having it come strait out the back...

I think I remember seeing some one bottom line a tank some how, and I also think someone came up with a way to mount a 13/3000 side saddle? But I can't find any examples...

Anyone got any ideas, pictures help.


Thanks guys!

For a bottom line you will need:
  • Tippmann A5 ASA.
  • 2 Macro Fittings.
  • 12" of macroline.
  • The male adapter from a remote line (aka a Reducer). Commonly available for around $5 (give or take).
  • Bench vise/A grip rivaling the Incredible Hulk.
  • Teflon seal tape or Loctite.
How to:
  1. Remove male remote nipple from the Reducer by wrapping a couple rags around it and clamping into the table vice, and then removing it with a wrench or a long socket.
  2. Replace the nipple with a macro fitting, don't forget to use the loctite/teflon tape.
  3. Repeat step 2 your A5 ASA.
  4. Attach the parts to the marker, and cut your macroline to your desired length.

And before you know it, BOOM goes the dynamite, you've got a bottomline on your MK3.

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much!

I didn't know the A5 ASA fit, but that makes this job easy now!

It certainly wouldn't be as ergonomic as a bottomline setup, but if you're after something more exotic, Amazon sells some neat 1" picatinny flashlight mounting brackets for $4 that work with most round ASAs. You might run into some clearance/plumbing issues to overcome, but all kinds of wacky things are possible.
