As some of you may know, I recently purchased an empire axe. With my 68/4500 ninja grey ghost tank, the fill nipple is digging into my wrist and it is so annoying! Is there something I can adjust in my reg to stop this? If not, what can I do?Attached File  CAM00482.jpg   332.85KB   10 downloads
Doesn't matter what gun you have, how old you are, what paint you shoot, who your up against, how bad of a day you had... All that matters is that your playing paintball now.

You can swap the fill nipple and gague around. That might help

Wont that make for less contact between the asa and the reg?

So..... as long as your marker is gassed up and not TOO far away you should be fine.

I use these and they say you cannot put more than 3 together.

I think there is a reason Ninja says to NOT do this.

Yeah I looked up on that and ninja said they tested that and the bonnet over pressurized because the fill nipple going directly to the tank as the gauge would do, and the gauge went negative, and sometimes the glass popped, so yeah.

well will it work with the empire axe on/off asa, as I would like to turn the fill nipple straight up and the gauge straight down. Can the tank be filled this way?
EDIT: THis would be 1/8 of a turn left, so will that mess up the tank locking in and the air flow?
