In my mind this is not to attempt to get "more shots" out of my Co2, but to even out the gas so my shots are more consistent. What do you guy's & gals think about this idea?
I have done worse for less.
You could also use an AGD rail or grip frame ASA, or an RT VASA. I was thinking you mean the AGD VASA with "ears" for the Automag rail.
A "close" nipple is shortest, but with a hex nipple you can get it all apart without the destruction of the nipple threads.
If you are really squeezing, you can put a small piece of brass rod through the nipple to reduce that high-pressure space, reduce piercing surges, and force more gas to metal contact. A close, but loose fit should be good. I really like my regulated 12g pump.
You may (should) need to re-spring for the lower pressure. Idk about the Sterling springs.
