Basically, I am wanting to move my ASA up from the grip to the side of the barrel so it will run parallel with the barrel. I think it will help with balance and will look cooler. Plus having the tank and my stock on at the same time was really uncomfortable.
Currently my plan will only utilize 9oz tanks since a 9oz is easier to work with and is lighter than a 20. Could also hold a 13ci easily.
I dont have pics from when I started so here is what I did before I took pics.
1. I removed the ASA from the Powertube and installed a 1/8" NPT M/M nipple and a 1/8" NPT F/F adapter which I then attached a remote nipple to. I had to grind out the hole a bit to fit the adapter, and it worked and looks fairly nice. Ill need the hose so I kept it aside.
2. I removed the plastic part of the grip and all of the internals so it was easier to work with. I then cut a 1" x 1" solid bar of a aluminum 2" long. I held one side flush to the marker and marked off about where I needed to cut/ file out for the curve in the marker.
3. Using my Dremel, I used a few cutting discs to get about the size of the groove I needed. I ran out so I attached a large drill bit to my corded drill and milled out the rest. I put it up against the marker and filed it until I was happy.
4. I then marked a spot on the aluminum to compensate for the rise by the foregrip. Using a flat file, I just shaved it down until the entire part fit flush against the gun.
5-?. Next I need to mark/drill/tap holes for the duckbill ASA, mark/drill/tap holes to hold the aluminum spacer to the marker body, and assemble the gasline.
