I have seen pictures, & heard of an A-5 with the air tank made to fit below the barrel of the marker, it seems akin to how some mount their Q-loaders, but for some strange reason this idea seems so enticing to me. Has anyone seen something like this? If so, a point in the right direction would be appreciated. Oh, and for those that run compressed air like myself, but think this idea bad for having too big and bulky of an object on your gun,(under the barrel, no less!) you could always run one of these bad boys that someone was kind enough to give me a link to:

EXACTLY! This is what I'm looking for! Where would I be able to purchase something like this? Also, is it possible to allow room for a bigger tank? Oh and to the previous comment about 'having to get that pepper-ball sticker!' that is there because that A-5 is used for crowd control (SWAT, SEB, and the like)

The A-5 pictured is made for military/police, dunno where you would get that.

The hawaiian name is actually a bit of a misnomer. The actual term is "Island Style"- there's two stories I have heard about it, but most agree that Hawaiian Style came from confusion about Island Style.

One is that a Long Island pump team was the first to do it, changed 12grams rather quickly, and became popular. That's the story I believe. The other is that there was a field based on an island that was rather small, and people used island style there instead of standard bottomlines to reduce marker length.

I'm pretty sure it was the first story too, someone even mentioned a team name, but I forgot who it was

White Wolf Airsmithing sells tank rings, which grab a CCI stock and hold a tank. You can get fittings from a hardware store that will do the same thing as the rings shown above. The connetion to the marker, as well as getting an ASA that's easy to screw onto the tank, will be more difficult.

Thats because, you are Years behind in Innovations and that the Pic I posted has been in use with the Los Angeles Sherrif's Dept. for more than 5 Years now and if you look in Pepperball.com, you'll also find a Tippmann Pro Carbine as well as the 98 Custom.

Foxhound, just follow what Aqua Bumm...I mean Scumm suggested, because the parts that holds the tank on that Pepperball Gun are very expensive...theyre priced for LEO's not Paintballers.

OK...first of all, (please!) list the parts you used, & do you think it would be possible to use those on an A-5? (If not, please if possible,list alternatives)
Oh, ok ...go to http://pepperball.co...y/products.aspx & check it out, thanks Evil Phalanges :happy: Oh and there is the A-5 pictured above there too!!

I"m sure you could do it with an A5. I just used some random extras around the paintball store. (I don't work there, I'm just a chronie). It's really just two pieces: a 1/8 npt to 1/8 npt (male to male) going into aan asa. Shop around Palmers pursuit or just go talk to your local pro shop to see if they are up for getting creative. All that said, I"m sure you will not be gettting too many shots out of that tiny compressed air tank. I'm not dicouraging you, just making sure you know. NOW GO DO IT!!!!!!!!

Would any of these pieces work? If so, what pieces would be needed?

Actually, just on the historical merit of it, the VM-68 and related markers were the first..

I thought about doing this and found that It makes your gun so front-heavy you will exhaust yourself aiming. Im a remote fan. or just norman air on gun. It seems to balance stuff out quite well.
