installed one some time ago, wanted to use it a few times before i made a review on it.....so here it goes.

installed it on a Fri. filled it the following Mon. used it that night, two words.....Friggen Awesome i cranked up the R\T and held it as long as i could mataining rapid fire as best i could (still not that great with the R\T when i got it wide open she's pretty touchy) did this for 3/4 of the bottle (20 oz.) and the gun barely got cold!! barrel got a little condensation on it but nothing like it does without the AS tube and no snow......NONE. over all i give this mod a 9 out of 10 just because you should have a airsmith install it, performance wise it gets a 11 out of 10 i love it i love it i love it i plan on doing it to the rest of my tanks. for what it costs you can't go wrong like 2 bucks at ACE for all the parts. if you plan on running co2 get this done you won't regret it!

WARNING
I accept no responcibility for someone that tries to install this themselves it SHOULD be done by an airsmith.this is why i'm not including instructions (please don't ask for them i don't want the liability) i did mine myself but i am 1000% positive i will have no problems with the valve coming off. i don't know what an airsmith would charge (if anyone knows post a rough price) even if it was $10-$15 i think it would be worth it

Iv used a pre installed universal AS before. Loved it! But I have found that RTs work much better with a little liquid going through, very practical upgrade.

SP sells a pre-installed AS on an on/off tank. Its universal for all guns. Just screw it on so the knob is pointing up, and turn the knob. Very cool.

Directions are easy to find online.

I need to switch out regs on my CO2 tanks.

Nice to hear about the A/S, If I was still into CO2 and low-end guns, I would get one.

Nice review. I may think about getting an AS tube when I get the cocker.

was messing arround with it today and have another something to add. i purchased a second 20 oz. tank and it came filled so i didn't do A\S right away. when i got home i thought i would do some testing put on the A\S tank and shot the speed vid i just posted (with much more messing arround) and the R\T fittings didn't even ice up, put on the non A\S tank and shot a slower rate of fire and instant snow. i feel the anti siphon tube is an awesome add on if you plan to run co2! my tanks will all soon have one.

Well, you could sell the remote because you don't have a harness and then buy some anti-siphon tubes. Or you could sell the remote and get the HPA tank. Usually people regret buying a remote because they find out that they never use them. I regret buying mine because it just sits there in my bag.
Sorry for going off subject.
