avoid the ones with the guide rods.
water masters are the best from what ive heard, but rainbirds also work

Yes a solenoid is just a electric valve. Any size will work its just a matter of how far your wanting the marble to go.

Stop double posting. I dont mind if someone does it occasionally, but there is an edit button for a reason.

You will want to mod the valve, it will cost less than the 3 9 volt batteries required to operate the soleniod, and take 10 minutes to do. It will also double the performance of your gun.
