Ariakon Sim-5 pro elite issue
Hello everyone, having a bit of an issue here and wondering if anyone here can make some suggestions, i have a sim-5 pro (amazingly accurate btw)
Went to skirmish this sunday, had a great time and all but the quick disconnect located on the magazine broke off, the gun tech at skirmish took a look at it for me and said that it would have to be replaced on the inside of the magazine but he didnt carry that specific disconnect since ariakon made all of their stuff custom
does anyone know where i might be able to purchase this or have one for sale? even if i have to buy a new magazine kit for it i dont mind

is it just fitting that is broken? like is the quick dis snapped down the middle?
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

if it's just the nipple that broke off .... can you replace the fitting with a standard 1/8" npt nipple and then change the fitting on your remote to match? use an EX-out to remove the broken thread portion.
it is possible Ariakon used a metric threaded fitting though ... likely need to source one from a hydraulics outlet though, not going to find one at a PB store.
a picture of the inside of the mag showing the offending damage would go a long way in helping though. It may be easier in the long run to replace the entire internal parts for standard fittings if they use proprietary fittings (but if they aren't NPT I'm guessing they'll be metring or ORB/S fittings (similar to Warsensor remotes, tippmann tombstone fittings, and older VL/BE bottomline fittings).
I tinker, therefore I'm broke!
Further, now that I've found the MCB BST ... I've recently sold my house and moved under the bridge down the road ... but I've got lots of markers.
I have no life, I'm just a dad in constant flux between baby naps and 8yr old tantrums.
