I don't know if this would be considered internal or external, but I'll post it here due to lack of traffic here. :) I also don't know if anyone has done this before, but this is what I did.

The valve went bad in my brothers 98C. I changed it out for him, but noticed the thread clogged up with aluminum from the old valve and wouldn't screw into the new valve. Instead of buying a new line, paying for shipping, etc., I decided to try putting the remote male nipple into the valve itself. I had to modify the housing just a tad.

The opening in the receiver for the gas line is 1/2" round. The quick connecter end is approximately 11/16" wide. It also recesses into the receiver about an 1/8" which is just enough to keep it from completely locking onto the nipple.

With the bare receiver halves bolted together, I used a 3/4" drill bit to ream out the gas line hole. It was still a little tight, so I finished it out with a dremel tool.

Here is how the finished product looks.

Other than the larger gas line opening, nothing is permanent and it is reversible if you ever decided to go back to the ASA and gas line.

I really like that. I have the 98 as a base of a sniper system,and i've had an issue with the asa as the grip i was using was hollow, so i had no place to attach the line. I think maybe I'll give this a try once I get my new 98.

it is my gun and while I haven't play in a game with it yet I love it. I also just got a cyclone for my 98c. It rocks.
