Assassins and Darkworks Frame Rear Barb

Working on a couple projects....Looking for a 90 degree barb that will work with the Assassin and Darkworks frame to keep the rear hose from getting kinked due to the small amount of clearance. I've found some 90 degree M3's on airsoldier but I don't want to order/wait/re-order if it doesn't work. Want to get it right the first time. Looking for someone that has an Assassins or Darkworks frame and can vouch for the proper fitting.

and a link would be great.

Thanks for your help.

have u tried using a longer length of hosing and routing it differently. For the promaster most of us had to use a longer hose and wrap it around the rear barb/qev so it didnt pinch.

A Pen spring works as a great anti-pinch device when slid over the hose/barb as well.

thanks but its because the barb is too long and no room between the frame and barb....pen spring and routing arent really gonna help. thats why i need some help from someone that uses the same frame. thanks though I appreciate thr suggestions.

It'll generally work, however, it depends on the body that the gripframe is being mounted to. Some of the older bodies weren't milled all the way through on the underside and it forces you to use a straight barb and not a 90 degree one. The other alternative, as you've discovered, is to use a firmer hose. The Assassin's frame, in particular, forces you to be VERY creative in terms of how you fit it. I like the frame with the Ironman body. It's a nice match!
