Hey, I got my new A-5 and I want to try something out. I have a 20oz CO2 tank and I want to mount it directly to there the air comes out of the main gun body. I hope that makes sense. Anyways I was wondering if someone could give me some info on how to do it, so I don't screw anything up. THX

A tank will screw into the tombstone there. You'd want a smaller tank of course.

As in have the air tank in a position so it come down vertically from the marker? Yes you can do that. It can actually help performance as it helps keep liquid CO2 from entering the marker.

All you have to do is take off the hoses and bottom-line then screw your tank in.

I do recommend using something shorter like a 16oz tank, or even a 3.5 ounce tank. While snapping the valve generally isn't a problem - the longer your tank is, the more strain is put on that connection when you drop your marker or happen to bang it on something.

I've done vertical Co2 on my 98C. The only problem with putting the tank vertical directly on the marker is that theirs hardly any room for expansion. I've found that the largest tank that can go vertical and still be comfortable and not too heavy is a 48oz tank.

you would need a vertical ari adapter. It connects directly to the power tube.

You do not need a vert air adaptor. It will work without it. The VAA is not necessary unless you happen to be shooting at high rates of fire.

Bobbjoe I am pretty certian that he meant a 4.8 oz tank.

My friend plays with a vert tank. let me tell you, it can really get in the way. I do not like them, i like remote, but hey she does so whatever you want man, but a vert 20 is gonna be a pain in the neck, id get something a heck of a lot smaller. it will help the gun though, no liquid will get in

Regardless what size Co2 tank is screwed directly into the A5's Tombstone, get a Co2 tank with an On/Off Valve, the On/Off Valve will help prevent Liquid Co2 from seeping into the A5's Internals and damaging the O-rings when the Marker is "not in use" and or is laying on a table on either side.

1: you cannt run a vertical bottle on a 98 custom stock. theres no place for it to attach to.
2: there is no 48 ounce c02 tank. if there was, it would weigh over 50 pounds and i dont think you could carry that. the tank would be huge.

A 20 oz Co2 tank weighs like 2 pounds, how would a 48 oz tank weigh over 50 pounds?

Yes, you can Vertically use a Co2 tank on a 98 Custom, but a Vertical Tank Adapter would be needed, in which the Adapter runs from the Power Tube and along and inside the 98 to the Foregrip.
