The older regs like Crossfire were long at the top also. With a long ASA, an old reg, and a drop, you end up about where you start now with a stubby reg and a small ASA. Some days I think about getting something larger than a new 68ci Ninja tank to make my old drops feel like they used to.

I have to admit that over time my drop arrangements have gotten shorter, but half of it is due to using lighter loaders as well. The bottles are smaller and lighter, so they fit closer. If I were still running a full B2 on an RT, I think I might go with a larger bottle on a drop or a 68 on a direct mount bottom line to try to get the balance right.

All of my old fat HPA bottles ended their 15 year life a few years ago. Right now I don't have one that will let me really chug away on a mag. My 45/45 will fire them slowly, but it's just not right.

I always used them with the AGD Flatline dovetail mount. If you're doing a retro build, that or a Dynaflow (or Apoc!) is kinda required, dude. :P
