Aussie sprinkler valves - Best to get.

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Thu May 22, 2008 10:05 pm

I'm looking to make a nice new marble plinker that I can take to my spare block at Macleay Island for a bit of fun. I've gotta make the gun unscrewable so I can fit in in a bag so I can take it over on the ferry.

As far as sprinkler valves go, are there any that are better then others? E.g better made, or have higher flow?

...or is a sprinkler valve, a sprinkler valve?

Cheers in advance,

Mitch.

haha, mitch a nice new plinker? :D :D :D I reckon you got to many plinkers, ;D , but on topic most sprinklers are pretty much the same just keep the piloting volume to the lowest and your good to go, but why not a piston valve? You've made pretty darn good ones :D

Haha thanks alot for that Elite :D. Ehhh as much as I come up with new designs, I make probably a gun every 3 months, or mod an old one to make it better. If not, I just sit back and procrastinate... :D.

I might get an el' cheapo sprinker valve and make a custom phram' like what Noname did for his. Might be the best way to go.

Because I'm used to working with small bore pain in the arse pistons, a sprinker valve might be a nice alternative for a change :D.

Yeah, if you do noname's mod to the sprinkler you will get very good performance and flow, probably similar to a Q.E.V., :D good luck!

Might be the best way concidering QEV's are so hard and dear to get in the land of AUS. I'm curious to know, I wonder if Noname's modded valve has flow like an average joe piston valve...Hmmm..
