This RED anodized aluminum ON/OFF valve has a built-in purge feature that depressurizes the launcher automatically when turning the valve off. The air valve also shuts off the air bottle so that no leaks can occur from the launcher when the bottle is attached full-time. Engraved directional arrows for "ON" and "OFF" on the top of the collar makes this very user friendly.
The valve works with the FT-12, SA200, Carbine S/SX/TX and TAC700 launchers, acting as an interface between the air bottle and the launcher air supply adapter (ASA). The San Diego County Sheriff's Department uses this air valve exclusively on more than 380 PepperBall launchers.
By purging the air from the launcher and removing the round in the breech, the bolt can be placed in the forward position, ensuring that the launcher is stored with an empty breech.
