It is my understanding that smart parts has a tank you can take the regulator off very easily and you don't have to be an airsmith to do it.

I have found the link here.

1) Does anyone have this product and does it work with a remote line?
2) Does anyone else know of similar products?

Please advise.

I emailed Smart Parts last year and asked the same question and the SP Tech did say that it is possible to mount a Remote Line to the Max-Flow Regulator.

Um sense they check your bagauge what the heck do you do if you have a Milsim marker? Mine looks like the M4 and That would really suck for someone to mistake it for a real weapon and then have this massive scene.

There shouldn't be a problem. I just traveled to CA with 2 paintball markers and 3 airsoft guns (rifle, pistol, and smg), and just my one bag with 4/5 guns got TSA inspected (I got the little notice in my bag). So, they were probably just wondering and took a look, but it's no big deal. However, my bbs were spilled everywhere when I got here. :( :D

I don't think you should worry about it, as it isn't illegal to have these in your checked bags.

Also, I found out that paint does survive air travel. I'm amazed.

Now, theres something you dont hear or read about in any other Forum concerning about Air Travel wit your Paintballing Equipment and its good to know that your own supply of Paintballs are able to survive a trip.

Yeah, but this is provided you keep them very tight in pods or 10 round tubes. I didn't want to just bring a case and have them break, but if anyone is willing to try... :dodgy:

I work for the TSA in Boston and I have come across plenty of air tanks and markers. A few times we had to turn the tanks over to the airlines cause the valves were still on. If they cant see into the bottle it cant go. We have seen teams come through and they know the rules and the tanks are already seperated. Some of the things people pack are amazing and funny.

The one and only time I took my marker with me on a flight, I got called to the TSA office to explain why I had a fully functional H&K MP5 in my bag. And that was AFTER the cut my bag open to get at it. Some of those people are morons.

You may also wish to add that if you remove the Burst disks from a tank to ensure it has no pressure you CANNOT re-use a burst disk. Once it has been removed, ruptured or not, it HAS to be replaced.

First question: I don't think they would steal it, but for all it matters, they could steal your whole bag. I just can't really see that happening.

Second question: I seriously doubt it. If an airsoft MP5 wasn't taken up for being 'real', I don't see how an A-5 would. From what I've seen/heard, the most they will do is inspect it and then put it back with the rest of the luggage.
