Need help with mounting a co2 tank

Almost have this Sniper project wrapped up. As you will see in the two links to the photos, I have indicated the two different positions that I will accept for the tank's location - as long as it remains underneath the grip frame or stock. I'm not big on remote lines and I want the weight in the rear so that when I add paint the weight is evenly distributed (or at least that's the idea!).

Anyway, my first idea was to add a spacer underneath the stock and a regular bottomline ASA and just add longer screws. It worked except it wasn't all that secure and wobbled some.

So here I am. Stuck. The stock I'm running is the Spec Ops stock (I think TW2 or something??? Not sure at the moment). Fire away guys. I'm open to all suggestions!

How handy are you with tools? Personally I would (provided there is space, never handled that particular stock) drill new ASA holes and run a duckbill screwed into the bottom of the stock in the position of picture 1.

If tools and drilling and tapping and such isn't really your thing (and you don't one of our talented airsmiths to do it) I would run it hawaiian style. Might kill the weight balance you are looking for though, depending on the size of hopper you are using, if you are running a B.E. 50rd'r or a winchester it may balance it perfectly.

Jaan,

Not sure what you mean by that. Why do you ask?

A stock like this Lapco T-stock might be more of what you're looking for...



you can move the stock back and forth to balance the gun the say you want as well.

It might be easier, depending on your circumstances, to just but something that does what you want it to do and forget modding the existing one.

Never thought of the T-stock. Not a bad idea at all. I'll take that into consideration.

Honestly I'd modify the stock. Mount the tank and asa about where the logo is on the left side of the stock.

I have the same t-stock Jaan posted on my sniper. Works great with 9 oz Co2 tanks, and you can even fit up to a 45/45 tank with it. Though I put a rail and on-off (for giggles) instead of the straight ASA, and I could fit my 68/45 under it...though it wasn't comfortable at all. I personally want to get another one for another marker of mine.

How about getting another asa with long screws and mount it through the stock to the grip

I probably should have mentioned I have the Lapco stock on my open class sniper and I love it too. The balance is great and it can shoot a long time on just a 10oz anti syphon tank.
