Anti Siphon Tube

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.

probably cost as much to ship it! why won't your shop install it?

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.

I found directions on How to make your own A/S tube

i think otter customs had an article about it

the reason my shop wouldn'tdo it, was cuase they were afriad it would weaken the valve and make a bottle rocket. then kill me...

well abr5, if that does happen...can i have your stuff, lol jk
If i didnt have my remote, and i wasnt planning on getting hpa i would get anti siphon. I hear its very good.

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.
g36 monkey

once i get my kit i will be using my remote, because i will get a harness. Im not gonna sell it now and then buy it again for double the price.
RoboCop

"Kit"? Are you talking about an anti-siphon kit? If you get the anti-siphon and put it in a harness and have a remote hooked up to it, you will be sucking liquid co2 into your gun.
