PostPosted: Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:21 pm    Post subject: macro line question

I bought a drop so my setup would be tight. Well now in order for me to be able to connect the macro (sp) line I have to bend it downward to be able to connect the line. I have a 90* on the lpr reg an a 90* on the asa hope that helps you visualize how much of a bend there is. How much of a bad idea is this?

Use swivel fittings.

connect to the HPR and remove the drop and ASA. connect the macroline to the ASA and then attach the rail and ASA to the gun. it will give you the bend that is comfortable with the parts.

^ I do this with most of my markers, and also because I usually have the tank hooked up while teching markers while the ASA is off the marker.

post a pic so I can visual better, All my HPR's have 90* on them and i use the stock icd ASA on some markers fine.

I guess to answer your question bending macro isn't a concern, unless you actually BEND it, like crease it.

Post a pic, but you should be fine.

It's pretty much a bend straight down, no kinkage or nothin.
