Who runs on constant air?

I really love playing pistol, but it still irks me to have to buy boxes and boxes of 12 grams and to have to coax my old PT no to leak them. I don't like using a remote on a pistol because I feel like im fighting with the hose all the time. So I'm thinking of slapping on a bottom line on my pistol and hanging a 3.5oz vertically off the grip.

I'm curious to hear from any pistol players who've playing using a tank or remote.

Discuss....

I have a USP pistol that uses a dummy 12gr fed by a 3.5oz tank on the asa.

I use a bulk tank on my sydarm sometimes. Its run off of a braided steel remote line right out the back.

I do (well, I can, and will when I'm out of 12 grams). I use a remote though. My workaround to minimize the awkwardness of the remote was to make a "gas-thru" grip for my Zeus. This way the nipple for the remote sticks out of the bottom of the grip and it doesn't really get in the way when you're using the gun OR when you have it holstered.

I haven't gotten a chance to do a writeup on it, and I don't have any detailed pics, but you can kind of see it in this pic if you look closely:



My biggest beef with a tank + bottomline setup is the fact that it makes it almost impossible to holster the pistol. Now, for a lot of people, if they're running pistol-primary they almost never holster their pistol anyway, so if that applies to you, then no big deal.

I play 99% scenario ball, and have taken to running missions and flipping flags. Sometimes, a prop is too big to try and carry one-handed and I need to holster the gun. Or, I want to try something devious and sneaky, so I holster it in the hope that not having a gun in-hand will make people view me as less of a threat or think that I am not in play. Hell, it worked with my DSG in the huge scabbard on my back, as I dead-man-walked right through the main firefight at the center flag as Dark Ops Extreme 5 and went to run a mission in the other team's backfield.

The other thing that bugs me about is it the balance vs. shots per tank. I use a 9oz. tank so that I can get about 500 rounds (which is a little over two reloads for me, carrying about 210ish rounds on me) out of a tank. While small for being mounted in a pouch on my belt, the 9oz would be way too big and awkward on a pistol, too short to shoulder and too long to not interfere with the balance. a 3.5oz would probably be ok, but then I'd have to carry spares into the field to feel safe about not running out of air and its one more thing to worry about. So that's why I went with the 9oz. and the remote line.

Good to know im not the only one planning to do this.

ITSPB-Rogue, please post more pics or a review of your setup when you have a chance.

cjottawa, thanks for the link. I had never thought of playing with silicone, too simple of an idea i guess.

I just replaced the 12g seal on my 'new to me' old PT Extreme. Leaked like a seive when it arrived .... replaced the stock 1/8NPS hex head plug with a proper 1/8NPT flush plug to cure one leak. I replaced the 12g seal with a urethane 'cocker cocking rod bumper (had to try something and couldn't find anything else) to cure the other ... so far it's survived three full 12g dumps and four more I fired off for testing and chrono.
I am planning to replace the flush plug and run it on remote once I decide how to route the line to the bottom.

I really want to get a remote adapter'd TPX and make a bracket that mounts a 3.5 ounce tank to the underbarrel rails and run a line back into the remote adapter.

That seems ideal for me, maybe even run my 13ci for winter.

I had planned to run a stroker using the QD off the back, with the line running up my sleeve, to an arm harness (which I had made). However, the tightness required to keep it from shifting on my arm slowly stopped blood flow, causing my arm to get cold, and me to get uncomfortable, especially while playing.

I may revisit the idea again, but not anytime soon.
