Cheapest QEVs Around

Unread postAuthor: Lockednloaded » Mon Mar 21, 2011 9:04 pm

I was browsing Spudfiles when I accidentally clicked an advertisement that took me to a pneumatic/hydraulic parts supplier. I actually looked around and found 16$ 3/4" QEVs and even a few good DCVs! I guess the advertisement companies are getting better at what they do around here

Yay, cheap valves for everyone

Cool find. Can anyone explain why almost all manufactures have a huge price hike between 3/4" and 1". At that site the jump is over $100!

Remarkable isn't it, I would much rather buy 8 3/4" valves for that price! Could it be relative lack of demand?

I couldn't see anything about international shipping, do they do orders outside the US?

I haven't checked out shipping yet, I have no need for a QEV at the moment. I've already got three launchers built around various sized QEVs.

That's awesome. But, the problem with it is, we don't know the full specifics of it, so we could run into problems of; where to add triggers, where the inlet and outlet is (those are easy finds), and places for barrels and mounting. Other wise, nice find! :)

They're standard valves, you can look up specs for the specific valve pictured by a quick search around the forum
