I was going to sell it, but I changed my mind. I want it to be unique, very unique. So I came up with this idea.

It will have the following
-SP All American barrel
-Homemade wooden pump (and undercocking mechanism)
-Inverted duckbill (connected to the air thru stock via 3.5" steel braided hose)
-Air thru T-stock
-(possibly) 3.5oz co2

What do you think?

Well... The SL-68II doesnt have bottom line screw holes. So I intednt to modify my A5 ASA adpter piece to fit inside of the hollow spot and either Epoxy or screw it in there. As for the hose, I was thinking macro.... but now I am leaning toward 3.5"s of steel braided hose.

Why inverted asa and air thru stock? Why not just inverted asa or just keep the co2 tank 'verted' and on gun? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for having a marker that no one else has.

what you need to do is, since that stock could just screw into the asa part on the frame, you could find a way to mount an asa to the bottom of the frame and run a line from the asa to the stock
Thats like walking into a room and saying 'Chocolate Cake' and then walking out...nobody knows what you mean.

Hmm... If I where you I'd drill and tap the grip for a screw on the side, then modify one of those A5 bottomlines. I'm not sure about the exact angle it's at, but I'm sure you could find some way to make it fit. You could also possibly just fill it in with some JB weld, then sand it down and drill and tap it for a hole. Then run some macro around to a 90║ on the T-Stock. You wouldn't have to use a rail, it might be easier and cheaper to use a standard duckbill ASA. It would be cool for the macro to run through the grip, as well. Why is there a big 20 oz on there, just use a 3.5 oz or a 9 oz. No need for the giant 20 oz.

You'd probably need a guide rod for the undercocking kit. You could make part of the pump handle go around the barrel(see Sterlings), which would probably be the easiest way.

For the barrel, you'd need a Lathe. Any reason you chose an All American? The easiest thing to do would be get a brass barrel for a Blazer and put some tape around it to make it fit. It fits great on mine. You could probably have them make one, as well, but I'm not sure about that.

Wimpy-You can't have it vert, the air goes through the grip to the back bottle.
t_boneshacone-That's the best way to do it.

Why have an air threw stock than the bottom line? Wait, the sl's have the asa like coming out of the grip in the back right? So you would use the air threw to be able to have a stock, than go to the duck bill underneath right?
why not just screw a 9oz into it and not use the tstock?

You will also need some form of adjustable stop of the pump handle. SL68's are unique in that if the pump handle is set too far in/out the marker may leak.

I was intending on using the same rod that connects the bolt to the pump. I have never heard of that issue before..
