I'm getting an A-5 soon and wanted to know if this will fit. It's a horizontal bottle adapter. I'm guessing that one part will go in the tombstone and the other will go in the front grip screw but I could be wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Maybe, with some work, you'd have to add a rail to the bottom of your A-5 and that may mess with the preset height of the drop...

The clearence dictated by the length of the adapter may be shorter than the distance required when you add a rail to your A-5. I think that's a better wording.

I hope some else on the forum has firsthand experience to share with you.

It may just be a matter of drilling a hole through it and getting a longer foregrip screw...

Hey man, if it is cheap, it might be worth being the first to post a pic in the Marker Gallery with it installed on your A5. :rolleyes: Airhog, eatcher heart out! :D

Are you looking for that exact placement of the tank?
If you just want to turn the tank this is also an option...

Yea AirH0g would be the guy to contact. He does great customization work and is a great guy to deal with. Just drop him a PM and talk it over with him.

That could fit on a A5, but you would need to mount a Weaver Rail where the Foregrip Handle is located.

And here is that Rail, I was talking about. :rolleyes:

How do you figure? If you mounted a rail, then added the adaptor, it would probably drop the tombstone too far...

In the picture you added above, the top of the forgrip and the top of the knurled part of the tombstone are on the same plane. In the OP's adaptor, they are not, that is what I mean, Bud... :rolleyes:
