Use a cartridge valve model, slide out the valve and tap the front end for 1/8" pipe thread and put a "T" between the LPR and the valve then install a CA valve stem. The lower tube is not sealed at the nutsert for the front gripframe screw.
Are you going to make it a semiauto ?

Yes, its going to be semi auto.

I had another idea which is much simpler, especially since I have a non-cartrige valve.

What I'm going to do is have a t fitting where the air goes into the valve.
Off of the sxtra point on the t I'm going to run an airline into the valve tube, infront of the seal to my spacer. Which the goes into the lpr.

Call it the lower tube rather than the Valve tube and you make more sense. You will still need a way to make sure that spacer doesn't go anywhere.... Also, that's going to be one very short run of hose if you are running from the current valve input to just in front of the valve. That's only about an inch at most, unless your spacer is going to be looooong.

Thanks for the device on word choice

I'm going to get all my parts together then make a final plan


Also, i'm running air to about half of the unoccupied part of the lower tube. Or about half way between the seal and the endcap
