As the title says I'm looking for the 2250b end cap with the QD connector for HPA, but one with the QD connector straight out from the cap. GMAC has them, but I was hoping someone here or at least in Canada sell,s them.

Could always get an end cap/fill adapter for a Benjamin Discovery from ScopesAndAmmo or Gravel...$33 (from S&A) and the exact same threads. That's what I did to my 2250B when I converted it to a 1750 PCP:

You may know this already, but just in case you don't - you will need a Disco valve (or at the very least the front half with o-rings on a 22xx valve rear) to seal the tube ahead of the roll stamp. Disco valve front is long enough to cover the roll stamp on a 2250 tube, but not on a 2240/60. Whatever valve configuration you end up with (I'd go for a complete Disco valve myself - $23) be sure to pin it with (minimum) 8-32 low profile SHCS.

I may even have a spare Disco end cap here in my possession, let me check my parts drawer and I'll get back to you.

my 2250b is already set up for HPA but the end cap has the 45degree filler. Since I have it stocked, the front stock slides over the barrel and tube , held in place by the barrel band. So I have to remove the filler in order to remove the front stock, also I don.t like that it comes out at a funny angle when tightened, kind of a 45 degree,s to the side, and down 45 degrees. Also when taking the gun apart, it,s a PIA getting the barrel off to get at the port. I switch barrel,s often from .177 to .22. GMAC only wants L 7.5 or $13 Canadian, plus shipping. $33 plus shipping in Canada is ridicules.

Care to post a link for that part???

I looked, but the only item that is remotely close to what you described (7.50 GBP or $13 CAD) is this: http://www.gmaccustomparts.com/epages/B ... oducts/055 in which case you will be very disappointed when you try to screw it into your tube and it don't fit (completely different size/threads - i.e: same threads as a paintball tank, not a 22xx or Disco tube).

However, GMAC does sell the Disco fill adapter I eluded to earlier (which IS what you need) for 21 GBP...or $38.84 CAD (plus tax/shipping): http://www.gmaccustomparts.com/epages/B ... s/1761-101

$33 CAD plus shipping isn't such a bad price after all, huh? :wink:

I stand corrected. Thank, s for the info. Guess I'll have to learn to live with it unless someone in the forum has one.
