I'm having problems with my stock ASA on Tippmann. Ok now for the description, ok here we go. So when I screw my 12oz CO2 tank directly in the ASA, there is no leak and it operates fine. It works fine with a remote also.

But when I use a 20oz CO2 tank or an HPA tank, it leaks out of the ASA and doesn't seal. I have tried everything to fix this but have been unsucessful. First I started by just putting oil on the o-ring on the tank and on the threads but it didn't work. Then I replaced the o-ring and still no results. I also tried one of my friend's tank because I thought it might just have been bad threads on one of my tanks but it did the same thing with his. I even tried teflon tape but even that didn't seal it.

Anybody else have this problem? And how did you fix it? I'm thinking of replacing my ASA with a new aftermarket one instead of just getting another stock one. Does anybody know if they make an On/Off ASA that attaches right to the A-5 grip without any adapters? Cuz I really don't feel like spending like $80 on an adapter block, a weaver attachment, and then the on/off ASA.

But it for sure has to be an on/off one. What are some good brands that last a long time?
Thanks

Tippmann doesnt make or sell On/Off ASA's, but before you do get an on/off, you would first need to get a Uni-Mount for the On/Off to mount to....I have one on my A5, just in case I wish to mount something, plus its easier for me to hold the Grip better.

As for an On/Off ASA, Trinity On/Off also with the On/Off, if you plan to use a Remote Line with it, make sure the On/Off is on the On Position or no air/co2 will go through.

So THAT is how they work! Wow, thanks for clearing that up for me. I went and got one of those cheap Off/off ones and was wondering what was wrong. :laugh:

I had the same problem. If your marker is still under warrenty just call tippmann and tell them your problem, they should ship you a new one for free.

I would prefer an on/off because I just don't like the style of the stock ASA

No my marker isn't under warrenty anymore, I already contacted Tippmann about it, and they said they couldn't replace it for free.

So now my question is, what is a good On/Off ASA that will attach to a uni-mount that is fairly inexpensive (Thanks for the mention of the Trinity one before, Evil Fingers)

The Trinity On/Off is just a reference, you'll have to look around on the Net for one thats within your budget.

Look in Craigslist or Ebay.

Thanks again though. And I like how the CP one's look but I don't want to spend $80 on an adapter block, rail, and then the on/off ASA. I'm going to check out craigslist though.

$80 is really nothin once you put everything together on your A5 and it will Pay for Itself in the Long Run.

No I went to a local hardware store a few days ago and bought the proper replacement ones for them, but even that didn't fix the problem.
