it is only 1/4 of a turn to turn it on or off, it has a cool, Smart Parts logo on it, many colors available, green, blue, etc. i love the choices(green) spare rebuild kit, very nice of them, i like it, nice so that im not always worrying about ruinig my orings.
well, i should of just l;eft this blank, but i had to pay 20 for it, pricey, but after 40 orings not chewed up, in otherwords, 40 times taking it on and off, it will ahve paid for itself
i thin airsmiths will like it, put it on, turn it on, use it, or test it, turni t off, take it off, no wasted co2, and if im going ot fire just a couple more shots, what i do is just turn it off, and shoot abou t 5 shotsm, and thats all, illov eit, now a need, but nice ot have
It does exactly what it says. You don't have to find where the stem valve closes. It's kinda neat and makes your gun stand out just a little bit more from the pack.
It's not really needed, unless you're like me and the proshop that installed your anti-siphon mangles your original valve. :-(
A decent product with no flaws what so ever. One more toy for your gun. If your old valve gives out on you and you need to replace it, or the shop mangles you valve go ahead and spend the extra to get one of these.
I have mine on a 20oz Crossfire Co2 tank. It works really well, very short turn from on to off. It is very useful for pretending that you are out of Co2 then airing up your gun and when they come to bunker you, you can shoot 'em!!
If a hillybilly field owner is filling it, he won't know how. This isn't a joke one time I went to a field and he said he couldn't fill it. I didn't want to embarrass him but it was just turned off.
Considering you can get one installedfor like 2 dollars more than a pin valve, its a steal. I would highly reccommend it to everyone, it makes the game easier and you also look professional.

Makes removal of CO2 tanks a breeze. Use to have a pin valve and it was alway a rush to unscrew...and sometimes it pops the pin. The On/Off valve has eliminated this problem.
It is a good addition to the tank....looks cool too.
Nothing with the valve.
But there is still some gas that will remain in your gun....requiring dry firing to get rid of it....
Its a must have....makes disassembly much easier. Highly recommend it for all CO2 tanks...its worth $15 bucks more... when you getting the tank together...but don't get ripped off having it added to a tank.....it will cost more that way....
Gets rid of that rush to get your tank off so you don't ruin an O-ring or loose all your CO2. Easy to turn on/off. I love it, its a great improvement over a pin valve!
A little pricy. Guy charged me 15 bucks to install it! If you turn it on when its off of your gun, you'll get a huge spray of CO2 in your face. (I always learn the hard way :)) Not the valves fault but when you turn the valve off when its on your gun, there is stil about 20 shots worth of CO2 in the gun (I thought you just turn it off and there is no more CO2 left in the gun) so if you take it off with the CO2 still in the gun, it all rushes out just like before.
Its worth what it costs, although I think I got ripped off on the installation. I think it is a very handy item to have if using CO2. I would definately recomend this to any player. After firing off the extra CO2 in the gun after turing valve off, it unscrews very easily without any worry. Overall, I love this product.
