dual ASA

This something I thought of a while back. Not sure how realistic and practical it is, but I thought I'd get this forum going...

It would be a regular ASA on one side and then have a 12g port mounted beside it. There would be switch that would block off the unused port and allow the air from the currently used port to run into the gun. The empty tank could be left on or removed. The 12g port would have a screw-on cap.

The only reason this may be useful is if you ran out of air during a game, didnt have an extra tank, and needed a few quick shots before the game ended. This would probably apply to woodsball/scenario players more so than speedballers.

I have seen dual ASAs both. Some big company makes it. Maybe it was lapco.

Sounds pretty cool. I could make it.
sinisterNorth

Holy crap, someone actually makes that? That was something I thought of in C++.

I think it'd be worth a try to make, though most people would probably call it stupid.

do you mean like this......

...i am gonna get one of these soo.
sinisterNorth

I dont know..What's that do?
Grunt_98c

it's an asa with 4 ports. one for your tank, one for a gauge, one for your hose fitting and one more for like an Micro Rock Regulator if you have a e-bolt.

He wants TWO tanks on ONE ASA

I thought of something like this, but it was different at the same time...
It was two ASA's, where co2 was in both and the CO2 would become like it should be(non liquid and such) and you would shoot, then the other tank would be used after having time to become the same way.
Basically, you'd shoot CO2 from one tank and then the other, it would also give you a long-lasting airsource.

oh ok.....never mind.

Pirate's post kind of reminds me of the double reg theory for Co2. Co2 and liquid gets regulated into a LP enviorment, it expands because liquid does with lack of pressure, then goes through another reg and gets taken to a low pressure as a pure gas.

Itd be kind of heavy with two tanks on your gun. a 12gram changer would be more practical.

Yeah, one day I'll be one of the top names in customized products, but until then I'll tell you more of my half-baked ideas...

Keep em flowing Pirate! Without ideas things would pretty be boring. Shine on.

I used to come up with paintball ideas, then gave up. Most of my ideas were already made. Mostly, cause i suck at being creative.

They had those at the site with the double barreled Typhoon I believe. It'd be cool, though.
Glassjaw

I've pondered the same thing before, and have always wanted to try it out but I will deffinately not test it on my angel Wink .
TriggerHappy1

Comeon Glassjaw, why wouldnt you want to run your Angel off a 12gram?

Laughing You'd get like 10 shots.
sinisterNorth

And probably kill the gun..

Pirate, when you're a big name, you can manufacture this and name it after me.. Laughing

Dual tank ASA...makes perfect sense. Would fit in perfectly on a Nasty Typhoon!
Glassjaw

Not that I'd not want to run it off a 12 gram, but hook up a dual asa. Actually, I have some ideas that I could do to make this work....too bad I don't have any tools at all needed.

You could make a valve. Take the end off of a remote, and screw it into the gun. Make two ASA valves connected to that, and you'd be set. It's just 2 ASAs hooked up to on off of a remote, and inserted into the regular ASA.
Glassjaw

I was thinking something like this:



The knob in the middle, when turned either way, seals one valve and opens the other. There would be some sort of lever to make sure it doesn't switch itself mid game, with rubber or some sort of polymer around the knob base within the dual asa to seal off the air flow. Of course the downside of this is it would be extrememly hard to turn the knob. I jus thought of another idea...which I may draw up in a few minutes.

(1337 drawing eh?)

By combining those three things in that drawing, I made something that made me hysterically laugh as if I weren't OVER or EXACTLY 13 years of age...

RoboCop

My uncle is a cop and he was saying that they have two tanks on some of there guns and that they double the power of just a regular paintball gun.
