loose stab

Got a new Blazer and the male stabilizer is a little loose and wobbly. My old blazer never never had any issues (zero) so I never messed around with the stabilizer. Is there a simple way to tighten the stabilizer? Does it just twist on? If so, the SS hose length is cut pretty exact and there is little slack. No allowance for twisting the stab tighter.

Sorry for dumb question. My old Blazer has been so reliable I have only had to do the minimum required cleaning and maintenance.

Cool

Does it wobble where it screws into the ASA? You might have to take either the frame or the bottem-line off and screw it in further that way, then just hook it all back up and see if it's cool .

It screws into the ASA. Put an oring or two on it then screw it back in and should tighten it.

A male stabilizer screws into the receiver located just under where the barrel slips in. (Yes, it just screws in)
It doesn't have to screw in tight - but it can't be ultra loose either. On my Blazer, the male stabe is pretty loose, when I air it up it does not leak.

I'd get macro line, cut it to whatever length you want.

I've aired it up and shot it and it does not leak, so that is good. It's that it is just out of the box from PPS, never on the field, and it seems like it shouldn't be loose already.

You can kind of almost sort of see the gap between the ASA and stab in the pic. It's not ready to fall off or anything. I'd just be more comfortable if it was a tad tighter. I guess I can take the hose off and add an o-ring and re-tighten, not a big deal. Thanks for the help.

I think I'd like to keep the SS hose though. This setup is so tight and it's so pristine I don't want to start toying with things. Macro works great, I have it on my Vikings, but this marker just seems right the way it is.

Its fine Yoda. Get a tank oring or two, unscrew the stab off the asa and roll the orings on to the base of the threads and then screw the stab back on. You should be able to get it to where you want with a nice firm feel. That what I did, worked awsome and I think i read somewhere that, that is what GP suggest also.

Don't worry about it. When you gas up the marker, you'll find that it's plenty solid(400 something PSI will do that ).

If it's really keeping you from sleep at night, PPS sells tank spacers, below the duckbills, above the barbs, on this page.

They probably put the reg tight and then backed it out so the hose would come out the back instead of the left or right.

That is one smokin' blazer!

Very nice!

I did exactly the same as vincib. I put an o-ring in my asa and I rolled one over the threads and onto the fitting of the stab. It snugged it up and it feels great.
Very sharp Blazer you got there!!

Thanks for all the help and comments.
I had to sell my house, my car and one of my kids to get it.
Looks like it will be fine, with (or without) a minor adjustment.

There is really no need for the the Stabilizer to be screwed in tight to the ASA. In most cases we leave them a bit loose on purpose as it allows for a cleaner hose installation.
As soon as you air it up, it won't feel loose at all.
