3/4" or larger QEV without breaking the bank?

Unread postAuthor: sharpshooter » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:17 am

I'm looking for a pair of 3/4" or 1" (20-25mm) QEV valves for a double barrel build. Everything I see that can handle ~200 PSI is over $100 per valve. I was hoping to spend more like $75-100 for the pair. Is this possible? Or am I better off just building some nice pistons?

There's no doubt that I can build the valves, but time is such a limited resource.
