Use Google man. Not to sound like an ***, but really, do you need everyone else to shop for you?

They sell straight macro fittings too you know. And they also make ASA's with the hole on the sides, so you can use a 90 too.

As for sizes, the holes on the grip are 10-32 (standard, not metric)

You need to go to your local store and show them what you want to do.

Why are you getting a VSC if you plan on using an HPA system? You could save yourself some money if you got the gun with the standard bottom line setup Or if you want to save as much as possible just get the gun minus all air fittings then go from there.

An ss-25 seems to fit the bill better imo.

how about you put a reg in place of the bucket changer, attatch a on/off asa to the grip, then put macro between them and TADA DONE ( a gas threw grip may work better a teamates phantom wont go over 250 with a torpedo reg/ light spring, but wont go under 310 with the torpedo and stock spring)

Na, CP's only go to about 500psi output and you want about 800. Just get a gas through and save money.

You can use a reg but you will need one with a higher pressure output.

Gas through.

It looks like a reg but its just a hollow tube and not a pump thing.

This has nothing to do with pump.

Just attach any ASA to the grip.

Then find ANY configuration of hoses/fittings/grips/regs that will get air from the ASA into the gun.

You could also just get one of these for the vertical ASA and attach macro fittings to it.
