Remote line connecting directly to marker?

I've noticed for a while that some markers that dont require a reg (particularly mags) seem to be able to run a remote line connector directly into the marker and i was wondering where i could acquire or make one of these.
Thank you!

Mags have a regulator built right in to them. Thats why you can run them without an external reg.

If you are looking to make a remoteline, just buy one, they generally come with a male asa adapter on the end of them. It would require a gun that can unregged, or a low pressure regged tank. Even an adjustable tank that can run low enough will do the job for you.

hmmm. i dont think i phrased my question correctly.
You know when ppl run remote lines off of their automag, most ppl hook it up directly to the valve.
like this

That piece is a 1/8 NPT fill nipple, I believe Titus had a few the last time I checked.

it came with my remote. the part of the remote that you connect into the gun is just that piece screwed into an asa adapter, so just unscrew the asa adapter and screw it right into the automag.

Wow. thanks for the quick replies guys. Got exactly the information i was looking for.

btw, is it recommended that loctite the fittings whenever they're in use? if so, what type of loctite?

Blue loctite works, so does teflon tape.

Be careful when buying the pre-assembled ASA adaptors as I purchased a cheap one recently that was covered in Red loctite and can not be disassembled for the fitting.

one thing to be conscious of, if you run the remote like that your gonna have tug on that size of the marker, especially if your runnin-n-gunnin and your remote snags a branch. one thing you might want to consider to at least eliminate the outward jutting line is a 90* fitting to place the remote parallel with your marker.
