Hi Pete,

Well the actual installation of the QF isn't too technical...
Just remove your bottle off Your Rapid,,
Take the stock off. Now remove the 1/4" BSPP plug on the bottom of the receiver. Now just screw in the adapter with the QF nipple (with the Dowty/sealing washer)

Now drilling the stock is a different story. The option of doing this ranges for the technical

quick fill

Postby rapid hunter » Tue Dec 29, 2009 1:55 pm

Hey great job buddy, showing the process makes it seem less daunting to a run of the mill guy like me.

just one question , what size bit do you use for the sleeve / insert (UK size if poss) i mean too big a hole and a whole world of problems if you pardon the pun :lol:

other than that it seems pretty straight forward, just dont rush and job done!

appreciate all the help, good work guys

Pete

Well Pete the actual person who professionally installs these QF's is Swift!!
I know he custom makes his liner for the access holes he drills.
So depending on the thickness of the liner will dictate the size of hole you cut....
But Swift is your man! So just drop him a PM !!

Good Luck,
Stuart
