Not an easy way like with the T8.1

I have had an idea for something like this that I want to try:
1. Cut a hole through the back of the grip
2. Install some custom macro line and air fittings to replace the nipple that goes into the mag
3. Attach that macro line to a remote nipple that is fixed to the hole you cut at the back of the grip
4. If you remove the CO2 valves from the mags there is enough room for that new air lines.

If someone could validate that concept for me I might actually try it

I have had similar thoughts of doing the same thing with my T9 but don't have a clue where to start! BUt I think it could be done. It would probably require a custom part to fit in the nipple thread though.

lapco bottom line kit, but it still goes through the mag which it sounded like you were trying to avoid

with all the requests for a remote line adapter for the T8 some one should make a back block that has a relief valve and air nipple built in. As for regulating the pressure that can be done from a asa/regulator on the tank (ex: the Empire Axe Relay). Run a remote from that and WHAMMY you got your self a remote line set up.

Is the back block for the t8.1 compatible I haven't had a chance to study one?

The T8.1 doesn't have a back block. The body is one piece

Does the 8.1 body fit on the 8 trigger frame?
