Question Tippmann ProLite

Ok, so I found an old tippmann prolite at the field on base down here in Cuba, figure I'll fix it up, since I have nothing better to do. Me and a buddy took everything apart, and found that although it was pretty dirty, everything was still in working order, only need to replace a few parts, but aren't sure what we need, since there isn't even a manual.

anyway... the parts that have vanished over who knows how many years of it sitting around are whatever connects the macro into the body of the gun (I hope you can visualize what I'm talking about)


But yeah, trying to get it working first, then I'm going to look into customizing it to fire first strike, and eventually, look like Boba Fett's blaster...

What your looking for is a basically a compression fitting. The valve is threaded 1/8" npt, same as most paintball fittings. You can probably find an 1/8" npt to compressing fitting at most hardware stores. I don't remember what size the hose is, that's what you'll have to figure out. I suppose you could use a macroline fiting as well, if you can find one for the size hose they use.

Or you could ditch the whole gripframe, throw a carbine gripframe on(you won't even need internals except the safety, all the other parts swap) and just run ss braided or macroline to a normal bottomline of your choosing.

Gas Line Nut Fitting [Pro-Lite] PA-10

Gun Valve Fitting [Pro-Lite] PA-24

Here are the oem parts from tippmannparts.com. These will certainly work, or at least give you a reference of what your looking for. Good luck! Prolites rule. I run mine with a 45 grip, a 3.5 oz in a vert adapter, and a winchester hopper. Makes a great low volume, high mobility peice. The boba fett blaster idea sounds awesome.
