Unfortunately there is no easy fix for it. My f-2 gave up the ghost last year after a dozen or so years of faithful service - same problem.

That was probably my doc and I already sent it to him. Yes, it's kind of a PITA and a very difficult design to fix. The manual says it was a factory repair only.
One "easy" fix might be to remove the rear ASA and plug the hole then convert it to a bottomline configuration like some of the F2s had. Not sure if there's enough meat on the body to tap it for the line though. FAST had permanently attached that fitting to the gun.
Here's the v-rex pic.

I have fixed numerious backbottle leaks on these. I just inserted a piece of pneumatic hose off a cocker inside the backbottle asa between the the two parts. There is a small air passage in there. It was a pain to remove the original line, but not impossible. If anybody needs them fixed pm me.
If meat is murder, I'll have a beer with the murder please.
