I want to point out, that an 1/8NPT fill nipple will work as a Quick Disconnect (QD) however, there are other non fill nipple QDs as well. A Fill nipple has an area in it to allow for a pin with an o-ring to seal when the tank is getting filled many normal QDs don't have enough room for such a thing.

There may be a difference in price as well between the two.

Here is a shot of what I assume the OP is talking about:


This is me with my Automag, The parts to set the remote up are as follows:

on gun:
1 90* 1/8" NPT Elbow (Otherwise the hose will stick out really far)
1 1/8" NPT QD

Off gun:
42" SS Braid Line (Male 1/8" NPT fittings on both ends)
2 Female QDs (Hooked to line)
1 Male QD (Hooked to ASA to allow differnt lines via QDs)
1 On/Off ASA with Bleed Valve (A bleed or slide check is a must with Automags, they can hold Pressure and make the line impossible to remove)

I reccomend getting a sleeve for your remote if you use the coiled type. I have a coiled line as well, and I don't like it as much as it likes to tangle, but I figure a sleeve would solve that. I am much more used to the braided hose remote lines anyway though.

I would recommend getting a 90* 1/8 NPT fitting and putting it on the hose where it connects to the nipple
just like what's shown above, but with the bend on the other side of the quick-disconnect. that way you don't have to worry about clearance with the gun, and it'll only stick out the side about 1 1/2"
