This is a question I have heard billions of times, so here are simple instructions.

To install a backwards facing tank.

First take off your ASA by unscrewing the 2 bolts on the bottom of it.

This is an ASA. Itís where your tank screws in.

Next, disconnect the steel braided hose from your ASA, just be gentle and use a towel around the 90-degree elbow when using a wrench so you donít damage it.

This is a 90-degree elbow - connector between the hose and the ASA

This is steel braided hose.

Then screw on a mount to the bottom of the grip frame so the on/off will be flush with the bottom of the grip.

This is a universal mount.

Then put Teflon tape or plumbers tape on to the end of the steel braided hose you disconnected from the ASA, this will prevent air from escaping.

Teflon Tape

Wrap it tightly around the threads, not too much to suffocate it but a decent amount, and make sure you donít get it past the end of the threads. Screw the 90 degree elbow, the part you just Teflon taped, into an on/off.
Posted Image
This is an on/off

The 90-degree elbow should be horizontal, in line with the barrel. When you put the on/off back on your marker, make sure it faces backwards by having the threads of the on/off facing towards the barrel. The part of the hose that enters the on/off should be on your right side if your righty and left side if your lefty. The on/off has holes on both sides so you can screw in the hose in either side, and the side you donít put the hose in you either put in a gauge, optional, or a little plug thatís included with the on/off. Either way it needs to be Teflon taped, like the hose.

This is a gauge.

If you are not sure about anything or donít feel you can do it without messing up the gun, donít be ashamed I didnít know I had to get my dad to help me, take it to a local shop and they'll do it cheap as long as you provide the parts.

When itís all done it should look like this:

I'm only pointing out the tank alignment in this pic, this mod won't transform your 98 custom into a Dagger MarkII, just so you know.
All this is based on a Tippmann.

I hope this helps.

Most people don't know how to properly use Teflon tape.
I will just tell them how. First take the threaded end of the fitting you wish to use the Teflon tape on, and make sure it is clean of any dirt. Wrap the tape in the direction of the threads starting from the end, wrap the tape around 2-3 times. Start one thread back from the end. Also make sure you keep tension on the tape while wraping.

If you loosen or disconnect a fitting, remove the old tape and rewrap with a fresh piece

Haha, I had just asked that question a little while ago...


How cheap would a shop do it, roughly?

how would you do it for the tippmann 98?
i looked on the specops store and saw that that mount is for the a5
Specops also has pictures of their custom 98s and the 98 04 has the backwards tank
any one know how this works??

I wish it would transform it into a dagger, that would be AWSOME
You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last nite, or that you got a ticket on the way there.. your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it.. Paintball 4 life..

Do you need to buy an on/off or is it ok to use the asa that comes with the a-5?

Its an option to have an on/off ASA for any marker.

You cant really turn the Stock ASA on a A5 since, the A5 has the same type of Pistol Grip thats on a H&K MP5 and in order to make that happen, you would need this

Lapco.com

The same adapter can be bought from the Online Special Ops Store

I just found this on an old link, but it definitely deserves a pin. So up it goes, and hopefully this'll cut down on some of those questions.
Oklahoma D-Day '05 (352nd ID), '06 (352nd PJ), '07 (352nd PJ), '08 (352nd PJ), '09 (352nd PJ). It was a good run.
