I've always wondered how the gun gets air in from the tank. Thanks :)

are you wondering for just how it is drawn in or how the whole operation happens for both poppet and spools?

This is a pretty basic explination, there is a pin on the front of the tank that when you screw it into your gun, it is pushed in and air flows through the tank regulator, through the asa, through the macroline, and then it goes multiple places which vary depending on your marker

Oh ok, I was originally thinking about something similar to this. Thanks!

The tank is filled with a gas that is under pressure, be it co2 or compressed air. When the tank pin is pressed down by the pin in the marker's ASA, the gas wants to escape. Because that's how gases work.

I know someone here knows where to find that web page that has all the different markers done up in some diagram program that shows exactly how they work. Whoever has it should post the link.

I mean, I know how the internals of the guns work (more or less), except for how the air gets there in the first place.

Gases have a tendency to go from an area of higher pressure to lower pressure, to try and equalize the pressure between two areas. The internals of the gun are at a lower pressure than the tank, so when the two different areas are exposed to each other, the air will rush in to create an equilibrium.

 

For example, take a balloon, fill it with air, and then let it out. When you inflate the balloon, you are packing air into it at a higher pressure than the surrounding air. When you allow the air to escape, the air rushes out to reach an equal pressure with the surrounding air, which has a lower pressure.

Yes, actually... Is there a reason you're asking?
