Review: This came installed on my very first tank w/ an anti-siphon tube - a 20 oz from Action Village.

Worked flawless for 2 years until i upgraded to a better gun & hpa. Never leaked & the on/off worked well every time. It wasn't until i let my cousin use it on a spare Spyder Sonix another cousin gave me that it had a problem - the o-ring sealing it to the tank broke/deteriorated/disappeared.

Freaked me out because my cousin was standing in front of me with the back of the tank facing me when it happened. I grabbed the gun & wedged it between the ground and a wooden post so if the tank had shot off, it'd go into the ground while the gun would've got stuck in the post, maybe. Then i just let all the co2 bleed out.

EDIT: Had it repaired last month & filled yesterday. Working great again.
Conclusion: Good thing to have for those stock (or nearly stock) blowbacks like my backup AMG.

Haha, a blown o-ring is nothing to be afraid about but I guess it's good that you're cautious.
