Can anyone make this part out of aluminum?
I need a part made out of aluminum, not sure if it is possible or not. But here is a sketch.

I see what you did there, good idea

capitalpaintball 07-12-2013 09:53 AM

its been done before. I would like one to.

Nice. Wish they were still made or someone can make a few.

I'm not sure what you're going to be putting this into but, to describe what I'm concerned about let's imagine it's going into a back bottle adapter, and a stock or tank is screwing into it.

If you tilted the gun to the right, the adapter would act like a lever with the tank on the end and the adapter could unscrew (it would certainly be easier at the least).

really no different then the one shown above by capitalpaintball. Maybe something like a locking nut like on the air thru stocks so they wont rotate?

I didn't check that link before, I remember seeing those, never saw anyone with them (maybe they had the same problem I mentioned). In those days, a lot of badly thought out ideas made it to market. But, a key design difference brings up another problem with the sketched design:

The male end on the production model was not fixed- it could rotate within the adapter. You would tighten the assembly down, loosen the set screws, rotate the adapter, and then lock the set screws once in place. This would only lock the adapter in place relative to the male threading though.

If the threading on the sketched piece is not rotatable, it will need to be indexed to line up with the gun it's attached to (again assuming we're talking about a gun here since it's not mentioned in original post) and even then, may not line up perfectly.

A locking nut could certainly help but, I don't know if it would be enough.

I would be mounted on a marker (rear asa), I do like your set screw idea, but it just seems those would eventually strip out. The locking screw has been used on a lot of air thru stocks. kind of like shown here: Tacamo T Air Through Buttstock for Tippmann X7 Phenom

Anyone? Does not have to be exact.
