SSBA 'Q' #2 6mm with qev

Unread postAuthor: Patto » Thu Apr 29, 2010 2:27 am

Hey all .. ok so this really isn't anything new it's the same barrel setup i've already had here with the same style of stock but i recently got given a 1/4" Qev from a mate and wanted to give it a go..

Ok So how good is a Qev ?? (might sound weird but this would be my first experience with one) but within 5 mins out of the box i had it modified and hooked up ready to go (thank you to everyone for the "how to " :lol: )

The Qev is piloted by a safety valve on a trigger arm held back by a spring. as you press the trigger the trigger arm slides through the safety valve applying pressure to the spring giving you a building feeling till the spring bottoms out and the arm starts to move down activating the safety valve. not the best setup as compared to a hammer valve pilot but i was trying to keep the style more realistic and im lazy :D

Sorry about the messy work with all the tape as i put it together and it worked perfectly straight away so i very rarely pull it apart, and the accuracy is amazing i measured out my target box at 12.5m and can get it 5/5

probably wont take this any further as it works a treat already and is perfect for a quiet afternoon shooting with the boys or the misses :wink:

anyway hope you enjoy ..

Na i don't think im going to paint it , but i would like to make some covers to hide the QEV. thinking about it i should of borrow'd a router for them parts since they don't hang out the hole way - oh well lessons are learnt everyday :D

I don't really want to do much to it as im working on my next setup which is just a stolen version of pollands mk#3 but with my own idea's thrown in ( sorry polland :wink: )

by the way the safety valve has turned out to be a good pilot valve for anyone whos interested

look great loving the stock mabe some walnut stain
to cover the QEV use wood filler or bondo. Is the chamber plastic? get some steel and go HP

also with the pop off you can go full auto with a smaller chamber
