Question About the TiPX Remote Adapter

Is the male fitting on the remote adapter (the part that actually hooks up to the remote line) removable?

I want to fit this ASA to it and run either a dual 12g setup with this or attach an 8ci 3k tank to the back (if I can find a way to support the weight).

So, basicially I want to know if that's actually possible.

Yes, it is removable but what you propose has some problems. If you're wanting to run a 12G in the stock front chamber and a 12g in the back with that setup, you have to realize that the airlines are connected through the gun. Unless you crack & seal the 12g's at the same exact time, air will rush out either the front or out the back.

This is the same reason you have to have an empty 12g in the stock chamber even when you're using the remote line. The remote adapter is actually a fill nipple that functions with a check valve, letting air in, but not out the back. If that's removed, then there's nothing from stopping the front 12g from emptying.

The seal on the front 12g should withstand piercing a 12ie on the back, or it would go when a tank was hooked to the remote as well. As for doing it the other way(piercing front first) it could leak unless there was a checkvalve in your changer.

The receptacle that the air fitting screws into, on the pipe that goes into the gun is a 1/8th NPT. Pretty common.

This pipe only goes through the body and screws into a banjo fitting, you'd definitely need a shroud or clamp around the gun to support a back bottle, IMO.

No plan to use a front 12g, just a dummy to keep the air in.

Right now I'm leaning toward the double 12g changer, but if I did the 8ci tank, I'd find a way to support the weight on the stock first so it's not being supported by that little piece of brass fitting.

So empty 12g in front, remote adapter -> PPS 1/8 NPT to ASA fitting -> Rap4 dual 12g holder in back. Sound like it'd work?

Probably, yeah! Just make sure you don't put too much force on that NPT fitting.

Also you'll probably want to loctite the remote adapter tube to the valve (or whatever part it conncts to, I'm not sure), otherwise you might accidentally unscrew it.
