    Those are actually really cool looking. That does'nt look like it's going to drop too much. How far forward do you want the tank to sit?

    The way it looks, with the tank reg and the On/Off adapter the tank part itself will actually start at about the back of your grip. So the whole length of the tank will sit behind your grip. Do you like to shoulder the tank?

    My personal fav is the shocktech drop. It puts that tank about perfect for me. I can shoulder the tank and the reg sits right in front of my face. They also make an adapter to allow for screw-in tanks.

    Check out http://www.g3pb.com/ and look under shocktech in the catalog section.

    yep,you still need a drop very badly.You have to look around for a gun w/out a drop on it nowadays.I will also get that drop after i see it on your gun,to see how it looks and stuff.

    I would also have to suggest a Shocktech df. They look great and you have 3 sizes to choose from. Most importantly, get whichever is more comfortable.

    Personally, I'm digging my shocktech mini df...

    NW paintabll has some cool drops. They have one that comes with an on off in 8 inch and 5 inch sizes. Check out their website. I think they sell for like 50 bucks and they are nice drops....

    Looks like a 2x2 drop...

    That looks like it is probably a 2" drop x 2" forward. Since you have the duckbill asa on there now, it will probably move your tank forward about 3" and make the gun sit 2" higher.

    It is a different shape, but I think that shocktech is also a 2x2, so end result would be about the same.

    My shocktech moves the tank 1.75" down and 5.25" forward.

    I dont know what kind of DF I have, but it balences pretty nice and I think I have the same kind of tank as you.
    The only downside is that you have to get an angeledASA or the gauge will hit the bottom of your gun.

    OOOPPPPSSS...

    Sorry been a long day staring at the computer screen at work. That is the long one. Is that true foreward length or overall length. Remember to measure between the centermarks on the two sets of two screws for the asa. I have a drop that is 8" long but only really moves the asa 6" forward.

    It is a pretty long drop. I love it when I am playing in the front as it balances right on the trigger. But in the back, I kinda miss being able to really shoulder aim, as it is just a little far forward.

    Can you buy one locally? It might cost a little more, but it is cool to be able to take the gun in and kinda look at it there.
