Exclamation Need mounting suggestions

I would like to run a 13/3000 tank horizontally above my T stock on my phantom but I am not sure how I can achieve this. I've spent quite a lot of time looking at different ASAs and drop forwards but I can't see any combinations that might work without custom parts being made. I wouldn't mind paying to have a custom block made but I would prefer to save that for my last resort.

Thanks!

7 oz tank stock. Would also work on 22ci, 13 ci or 10 oz tanks. Goes around tank and uses 4 set screws to clamp. Includes 4 sets screw in plastic bag. - Misc Stocks - Stocks - Air / Bottomlines

I know White Wolf Airsmithing has some tank rings that mount on a CCI stock. He isnt the fastest in the world but he is legit.

^^^WWA is not legit. avoid him if possible unless buying through ebay where you can get ebay on your side to get your stuff/money back.


that aside...

I prefer to have a tank with an angled ASA fixed against my shoulder to stabilize the gun. Aesthetically and functionally I prefer the CCI angled ASA with a 45/4500 or a 13/3000 (plus 3/4 tennis ball) tank. It removes the added weight of the stock and utilizes the tank to accomplish the same function. I also use a palmers stabilizer on the veritical asa. Also of note, I run Nitro Duck iReg tank regs (which are abnormally long:~1 5/8 inches) which add to the length of the short tanks.

If you wanted your tank horizontal to the barrel (and you are using a frame that has a bottom), you could use a palmer's female stabilizer and a ring mount (I have this set up on my capped 'mag--super light, slick).

As far as missing the adjustability of the cci t-stock: well, I have adjusted myself. and I would rather have a solid platform than something that is adjustable and might come loose in the middle of the fray. Also, is the cci t-stock really that comfortable/advantageous??? in my experience, while it is functional, I would refrain from calling it comfortable. its points get tangled in fabric. It is elegant, simple and fitting to the phantom, but it is a long way from a marksmen's stock of choice.

The only problem is that I have very long arms and I was concerned that just using the tank as a stock might not be long enough.

I may just need to give it a try though. It seems as though that is my best choice since I am unwilling to pin the tank inside of a sleeve using set screws.

Thumbs up

This is how I run the 13/3000s on my Phantoms.
I'm of average stature (5'11") & the CP mini drop is perfect.

Does that braided line interfere with your grip at all?

hmmm, didnt know that. Ordered from him a few months ago with no problems, other than the time it took to get to me. Maybe things have changed...

i did this once, what i did was cut a piece of 1/4" thick aluminum, about 4" long, drilled holes to mount to grip, and two more at other end, mount an asa upside down on top of it, and the stock mounted to grip thru the piece. bam. tank mounted above stock behind the grip. sorry, dont have any pics, but if needed i can do a mock up (i lost the piece i made long ago)
