Hey guys,
 
what size thread is in the power tube/asa/bottom air line?
 
am i right in thinking its 1/8" NPT?
 
looking to do some mods to the air system............
 
(found a couple of topics about removing air line, but they call for 1/8" MPT or FPT?)
 
thanks Koop

he could help you out.

and talk to smaller mom and pop shop

I would highly suggest against that if you have no air smith skills
they need to be pressure tested so you dont blow something up
or fail while running thru the woods.
saftey should be number one.
Keep the search up!

If worse comes to worse, I could get some and send some out
but shipping is gonna be a bit since I am on the West Coast Of Canada
