S4xx Fill and pressure gauge?

I know most S4xx's have the pressure gauge at the bottom, but my MPR-FT has none. Does anyone know of a pressure gauge/fill assembly that will mount on the front of the tube?

I've searched around and found nothing. I know one vendor says he is working on one that may be available in the coming months, but that's as close as I've gotten.

Thanks

For that to work you'd need a fill assembly like a Cricket that uses a slip-in probe and end-mounted gauge. Would probably require a new pressure tube that is is threaded at the muzzle end to do this. Sounds doable but EXPENSIVE. BTW, when was you4 rifle made? The later MPR-FT's that i've seen all had gauge on bottom.

for the S200 guns, so I was hopeful there was something similar for the S400.

I checked that and saw the Altaros S200 kit. Pretty cool. You must have a early MPR as all(4-5) i've seen all had gauges.

Just checked Altaros's site and they show a AA kit. Video shows it being put in a 400. Its listed in "other access." and is 64euro.

the prototype to the MPR-FT. I picked it up off the Classifieds years ago for 600 bucks. I checked with Bori at the time and he confirmed it was the prototype, but aside from his confirmation, I have nothing else really. It looks largely the same as current models.
