Tonypp, how do you keep from pinching off the feed tube? I can't seem to make a hole in the inbox cap/plug large enough for easy squonk action. I tried using a 4mm bit to drill a hole. Go figure how that would work on flexible/stretchy silicone.

I had to make a visible hole. I used a hollow punch to take out some material and leave a round hole.

Dang, I doubt I have anything like that I could use. I'm going to try putting the plug in the freezer and drilling it out with a 3 or 4mm bit while it's in the bottle. Will report for others if it works well for me.

I am confused. Why are you spending so much time on a solution when all you have to do is slip a 3x2mm o-ring over the tube and the bottle is sealed?

Using the included silicone plug with a hole through the center is 'so much time'?
Lol.
It took me 2 minutes to cut away the excess and make a hole. And it works brilliantly. And you have 5 of these in a 5 pack of bottles.

I have no 3*2mm o-rings on hand, but, like tonypp said, I did have 5 silicone caps at my disposal. Drilling didn't work out so hot for me, BTW. Ripped the plug right out of the cap. I'm using the outer part of the vt inbox cap now with good results. Just makes it really stiff to fire because it takes up quite a bit of space and presses up against the switch. I'll probably end up finding some o-rings for the frankenskull cap, but this is getting me by quite well for now.

I just went back to using Italian supersofts..... after prolonged experience with the setup I had (franken cap & inbox bottle), it wasn't optimal. Lukkos & Sunbox silicon bottles are way way way crazy expensive... but supersofts... I can live with.

Yes using the outer was my first instinct, but trial fitting proved it was too bulky against the switch.

Any hollow metal tube should be able to make the hole for you.
Like an old aerial, or scrap tubing.
