Smallest 90 degree macro fitting?

Hey guys, I am having a hell of a time finding a macro fitting that'll fit on my torpedo and not hit the frame of my Trilogy. I tried every elbow in my toolbox and they are all too large. The input side is directly facing the trigger guard and the output/guage side is opposite that. It would be a perfect design if it actually fit! I read about jerry rigging it with some orings so it "fully tightens" before the input side reaches the trigger guard but I was hoping somebody had a better fix.

Thanks guys!

You can leave the reg slightly loose, once it's aired up the pressure will hold it tight.

As far as I know, these are the shortest made

Really though, I say use something like a CP reg over the torpedo. But I know that would cost more

Yeah I figured it would seal fine, especially with an extra oring, and I'll probably go that route if nothing better comes up but aesthetically speaking it would be nicer if everything lined up correctly. But its not a very pretty gun to begin with so I guess it won't be the end of the world.

Those look like they may maybe just work but at $25 I'd be better off buying a different reg, like you said. Thanks for the heads up though!

I've always just put an o-ring inside the asa if I had an alignment issue like that.
