just finished this valve for the most part for my new build im about to start valve spring moved to the front, spring retainer turned on the front of valve, and a second retainer for the end, should work good, we will see when or if the gun ever gets finished,

the spacer between the valve and stopblock/whatever that things called is there because i took off the face for it to sit against on the valve, realized this after but no big deal, just used a left over part of the valve end,




excuse the poor surface finish on the parts, was done in my -25 garage this morning, could barely feel my hands,

Just a question, why the long front end on the valve?.... I cut all mine away, even part of the thread, just leaving 1/4" section to hold the O-ring in place.... You can slide the valve into the gun with it in place (like a Disco) you dont need to tighten it in afterwards....

Mine had a spring in the conventional location, on a pedestal on the QB79 tank block, but would work even better with a rear spring like yours.... The remaining aluminum sleeve was epoxied in place (leaving the appropriate gap for the O-ring) and then finish machined afterwards....

ill probably cut it back, the reason i left it long was to make a tool to tighten it in place. but i may look into setting it up your way, if im going to go all out and chop the valve in half like i already have done might aswell go all the way,
