Well that's stupid for three reasons.

1) Joel stopped making them while he goes to Iraq
2) BattleMonkey lives in New Zealand
3) Still doesn't solve the problem of expensive piping.

Ok he can buy a used one, and have it shipped along with some other assorted pieces to wherever he wants.

It'd be cheaper buying it in NZ with the shipping rates, Think logically ShowNoMercy, use your head, shipping a 6' section of 4" pipe isn't the smartest idea, nor shipping a used supah valve when he still needs to buy a chamber and other fittings.

we all highly doubt it,
and first off you can cut the price buy using a normal DWV 3" end cap, but wait I need to use all rated fittings right no the piston is supported on both sides, and the vacuum of the barrel is mainly applying force to the rubber sheet.
you may also use various ghetto techniques like instead of the normal 4" brushing you can use a 3" to barrel size" glue coupler on brushing, then glue that in the 4" pipe should fit right in

if you are even too cheap to buy a valve to actuate it you can fire it by removing the quick connect
