The marker in question here belongs to me, I'm planning on putting the lower tube back in with Metal Set A4 which should work just fine. The gun is a project.
I wanted a really compact sniper for playing modified stock class, which is one of the reasons why I mini'd it. I'm running it without a reg with air running straight into the valve chamber through the side of the body. I'm also going to be knocking off the 45* feed and putting a 10rd stock class feed on.

No "hacking" here, it was mini'd properly with a milling machine. The lower tube wasn't loose, there just wasn't enough glue left to seal the front end of the lower tube after being mini'd.
