ok call me crazy but i have 2 a-5s and run either on either hpa or c02.... i was having leaking problems and consistancy issues with both guns, one night i got angry :evil: and took off asa valve from gun and plugged in tank directly into the gun, would provide pics but having issues with camera. after i did this my gun not only shoots better but also quieter and less of a vapor cloud when using c02. my leaking problem has also mysteriously dissapeared :unsure: ... did i just "bump" something and now this happened or does this actually help my marker????? :wacko: :wacko:

A horizontal ASA on a marker will allow some liquid to get into the system. When you just stick the tank into the vertical ASA/air line port, you are essentially making your tank an anti-siphon, thus ridding it of liquid. It is a great way to maintain consistency, but unfortunately, is less ergonomic. I will sacrifice some consistency on a semi-auto for the feel. However, on a pump, a 3.5oz tank set vertically is great.

It works better as far as consistency, since liquid CO2 has to defy gravity to get in your tank. Unfortuneately CO2 tanks get cold so if you touch them with your bare hand its like "ow". But yes, it is kinda a preference thing. Sacrificing consistency for a decent stock and ergonomic grip.

if this is the case, then there's some kind of restriction in your air-lines. Most likely, in the horizontal asa.

Take a drill and enlarge the hole(s) on either side of the pin-nipple there the tank screws in. Double the size if you can. Reattach it to the marker and see if that doesn't help any....
