I own a Tippmann Cronus and I basically want to flip the asa around on it so it's facing the front of the marker. How can I do this, considering the marker has an internal gas line?

by the looks of it from this picture you can't, seems like the interal gas line and ASA are fixed together in the proper direction. unless the ASA can flip around, it won't work.

Could I twist it with a wrench to turn it around? If it screws in

if that piece ontop of the ASA connected to the gas line is connected to the ASA, shouldn't be able to work.

I'll have to take it apart. I can't remember if that's what it's like.

The fin looking piece with the threaded hole is a part of the ASA, meaning you will not be able to just flip ti around without modification. You would have to dremel out some room for that fin to fit, and then drill a new hole in the clamshell so you can still bolt the two together using that threaded hole, and even then the air line might not fit, meaning you'll need to get a new one and bend it to shape, which won't be easy. Way too much work to be even remotely worth it if you ask me.

 

Another way to do it would be to cut that metal fin off, adhere it into place, and that will allow you to just flip the ASA around. The only downside to that is the fin secures the ASA in place, so you will need to find a way to secure it after you remove that fin.

I opened it up and found that I could flip the as a over (the internal gas line pivots) but I'm going to have to mod it to make it work.

Island style? Why would you want to do this to a Cronus?

Hawaiian style is a misnomer.
