Oh yeah, orbit water-masters can withstand 120 psi, anything above though is kinda in the danger zone so be careful.

the orbit water master valve is rated to 150 psi , so yes it will handle 120 psi. not all sprinkler valves are rated that high though .

That cannon in your avatar, is 100% not rated for pressure. Please never use it again, just bin it.
