QEV Options

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:49 am

I apologize in advance for such a noobish thread, but a lack of datasheets has forced me to do this...

I'm looking for a 1/4" QEV and I've narrowed my options to 2 types which are essentially the same price and come from the same store.

Euro Style

Rectangular

The former is tried and true and I know many SF users stand by it, but the latter has a 3/8" rather than 1/4" exhaust port which suggests it may offer better flow. Again, without datasheets, I can't make a proper comparison. Can anyone help me out?

Even if it has 3/8" porting, you're still restricted by the 1/4" chamber port.

But I'm still attracted by the usefulness of a 3/8" port and slightly lighter weight :P

I think I'll stand by you Europeans on this one, though.

Thanks. A plain search for 'bqe-n02' and 'qe-n02' did not lead me there. The Euro style wins.

How was I supposed to assume they were Bosch? :P


...And soon I will unveil the third incarnation of my endless quest to build a revolving dart gun... And this time it won't be shooting foam.
