Need ASA/Vertical Adapter Recommendations

Hey guys, working on building a 3.5/4oz tank-in-stock setup for my DSG here and I'm trying to find a vertical adapter that would be the best fit for what I'm trying to do.

Basically the stock will be cut out to surround the tank, so the end of the tank sits so that the buttplate of the stock mates up against it just like it would if the tank weren't there. Nice and flush. What I need is an ASA that is easily sourced, but that is as short and small as possible. Top or side port is workable with how I want to do this, side port may actually be preferable.

Right now the best candidates I've found are APP and CP adapters for Spyders, but they're top ports and don't look like they've got any meat to drill/tap into to keep them stationary in the stock.

Speaking from experience, you may want to consider using an on/off ASA.

I'd prefer an on-off, but I'd like it to be mostly concealed, and most on/off units are on the bulkier side or have the switching mechanism in an inconvenient location. I was thinking of maybe using one of those 3.5oz tanks with the on/off built into the valve- I'd have to shoot any excess air out before removing the tank but it would still be preferable to removing the tank from a charged system.

What about something like this from palmers?

ASA to ????? [CAHW061] - $15.00 : Palmers Pursuit Shop, Where Custom Still Means Something

It's a blank asa, and you can tap the front or wherever for what ever you need. and it looks like there is enough meat to tap it for a set screw or something. Unfortunately it is not an on/off.

Actually Sniper, that may just fit the bill. I forgot that Palmers makes little odds and ends like that.

Everywhere I've looked for an on/off, I can only find something that would require the ASA to be exposed for access to the switching mechanism, which I'd like to avoid. Something like the Palmer's unit can be tucked into a bore in the stock so that only the tank itself actually shows.
