Odd question on LCDs

I see this mostly on LEDs, LCDs or some IR3s. What is the airtube that connects the solenoid and the feedtube on these older markers? What was the intended function?

That would be the air assist, a mod first performed by Adrenalin for their private label LEDs and LCDs (they did not produce an air assist mod for the IR3, although there may be homebrew versions). The mod redirects the exhaust air from the solenoid manifold through 1/8" tubing into the feedneck. The logic behind the mod is that the burst of air will help to push balls through the feed stack more quickly (bear in mind there were no force-feed loaders at the time when the mod was created). In reality, it is more or less a gimmick.
