Pro Carbine Horizontally Mounted reg?

Does anyone have a procarbine with a horizontally mounted regulator? Just wondering how that would look.

I'm talking coming right off the valve with a 90 degree elbow and running the reg horizontal tucked up under the gun.

Your best bet would most likely be a vertical ASA and one of those Palmers 90 degree ASA things. I forget though, do these still have the flex valve or were theses the newer style of valve? If they are the newer type you might be able to screw a 1/8NTP extender into the valve and install a 90 degree fitting on that, then run a minicocker ASA off that, and just screw the reg into the ASA.

What are the odds I would be thinking about doing the same thing with a Pro-Lite today? Particularly because the ASA is integrated in the grip.

The challenge is what to do with the airline that forms the trigger guard. I know somebody is thinking "Use a Pro-Carb trigger frame," but I don't want to do that.

Your should be able to reroute the airline from the reg to the asa with out losing the functionality of the hose as the trigger guard. Assuming your output line on the reg is near the trigger and not at the other end.
