Anyone has a Flex Air Kit + Buttstock with an integrated hpa tank on their Tippmann?

Pictures would be great of the whole marker with the kit installed.

Yep.

I guess I'm one of the very few that enjoy Milsim and not worry about carrying a bulky tank.

My A5 is just going to be my fun gun for rec.

I really don't trust the Rap4 products. They are cheap and everyone I have talked to has had nothing but issues with them.

I use one. It has been fantastic from the day I got it. I used the X7 kit with the 13/3000 tank, and now I use a remote line stock with a Magpul ASC stock. I don't have pictures right now, but I can get you some in a couple days when I get home. Its a reall nice balance because I use a lot of rail attachments up front that weighs it down, and if I just had a plastic stock it would feel really unbalanced. With the air in tank it does weigh it down but it is very easy to move around with.
Thanks,
Blake

an old picture of my magfed with that adapter



Dont have a good opinion of that adapter.
It is badly made (tooling marks, and just plain bad machining), and more importantly badly designed.
It is prone to leaking with minimal misalligments.
The worst part? it places the tank/stock extremely high, so high that even with a riser you will still need to angle it to use the scope/sight. Forget about using the iron sights.

Here is mine, I have a on/off between the tank and the adapter it adds about 1 inch to the length.

I would agree with Flint that the tank is high on the on the gun. I also had problems with leaking, I found that the brass air adapter comes 2 parts and is threaded (does not look like it comes apart) and I added some teflon tape and that seems to have fixed my leaking.

Thanks for the pics Flint and rob-o. I was curious to know how bad the gap was for the tank.I was hoping that the tank and the stock would be lower so it would look straight from the barrel to the stock.

Bums that it still has issues to work out as well. Maybe by next year Rap 4 will have it's issues worked out on both it's Flex Air and Mag kits. Both markers look great.
