A valve tap for a paintball marker that screws into the ASA adapter. Has replaceable O-ring. Dense, heavier duty aluminium.
Features a groove-slotted tap on top w/ clear ON/OFF indication and directional indicators. The top rotates stiffly, allowing one to open more precisely, more easy. The lopside for a burst disc fastened w/ a circlip.
At the rear of this adapter, the paintball tank would screw in.
This retains the gas and prevents it from spontaneously entering the marker as soon as the tank is screwed on (provided the tap is on the 'OFF' position)
This is ideal for self-defense as the tank can be kept screwed onto the marker, so long as the tap is shut and no gas is in the marker's gas line.
If the latter is the case, then the gas needs to be expelled prior to storing the marker, as the trapped gas will blow the internal o-rings.
In the event that the marker is needed, one can simply withdraw it from storage and instead of screwing the tank on, one simply opens the tap (after cocking the bolt).
