Wow.. okay I'm wrong.. that's for an expansion chamber. I thought the air fitting was the on off.

Yes, that is a joke ---->
Have another theory. I wonder if it was an elaborate cheating setup? I've heard the rumors of the magic box being able to pull liquid into the pipe and getting hot shots. With the 3.5oz tank and the magic box on the other side. This setup would make it easier to force liquid into the chamber by tipping the gun to the left(easier for a right handed person than the original magic box), while making sure that you get no hot shots at the chrono station.

I don't think so
If what you are saying were true, having the 3.5 oz installed would be counter-intuitive. The 3.5 oz would give the liquid time to expand. If the goal is to get liquid into the gun, you would want to run a line straight from the bottom-line to the valve.

Yes, that's an expansion chamber. Later versions skipped the tank valve, and made a vertical mount for the 'Mag that had the 3.5 oz bottle screw into directly.
Your version should have a sort of "dip tube" inside- the CO2 is let in through a tube that goes about halfway down the tank, then is let out (towards the gun) through a port at the top, so there's some additional separation between the inlet and outlet.
And no, the rumors of the "Magic Box" having some magical cheating properties are false. All the MB does is add volume to the dump chamber. That's it. The "box" portion is just a clamp, and the inlet fitting is just an extended nipple.
If you get CO2 into the system, it passes by the reg and produces a hot shot no matter what the volume of the dump chamber.

Cooper-T made a product called a "Surge Valve" to use a 3.5oz as an expansion chamber.
You removed the bottle valve and basically installed a vertical ASA directly between the rail and bottle.
Similar concept as the above pic.
