You want your pilot valve to be as efficient as possible... so yeah, why not ;)

well i'm probably not going to buy one as then this one component will cost as much as 2 rifles fully painted :P

also this being my second rifle, i don’t want to make to too good or its going to be hard out doing myself in the next one :P
any ways i’m almost done, and tomorrow i shall post some pictures of the finished component.

I can buy 2 QEVs (1/2" as the main valve and 1/8" for assisting piloting) for about 25 - 28$ total here in poland...

I think you aussie guys should chip in and order a whole crate of various QEVs..
don't laugh it really is doable but requires good organisation

ok well im finished (happy days :)) here is what that component looks like:

i added a bit of texture on some parts, it adds both grip and a unique look :P

it feels really nice. i don’t know how it would compare to a regular pistol grip, but i am really likening how it ended up. and i recommend doing this if you ever decide to make a wooden stock.

Looking good, but where's the launcher that goes with it?

Pretty is as pretty does ;)
