You have to check from time to time. Try Sinister Sports Paintball in Roseville. This store is small, but it mainly deals with paintball sport related items. That's where I got my Black CP used On and Off Valve for dirt cheap.

Bigboytoys in Elk Grove carries Half Paintball related sports and the rest are Nitro/Electric RC Cars.

You can always call Sinister Sports and ask if they got any used ON and Off Valves. I only mentioned the Paintball store in Elk Grove because I"m closer to there and I only go there to refill my Co2.

Was that the cheapest price for a new On and Off Valve?

I didn't see any other on/off valves. So I am guessing the cheapest one is the 45 dollar one..

Alright guys Im a HUGE paintballer. In fact thats my first hobby haha. You guys want super cheap On/off ASA's check out PBnation.com I got my Custom Products ASA just like that black one up there for 8 SHIPPED.

And I put this thing up today. Literally took me like 10 minutes. Its extremelly easy.

So to help out my fellow planters for sure check out PBNATION.com. Then scroll to the bottom for the Buy/sell/trade and then click on Misc. Paintball equip. Then search for ASA using the search forum. Happy Planting!


Also check out ANSgear.com They have super cheap decent on/off asa's for like 15 shipped.

Awesome, looks like that works great.

Also this guy on ebay will sell you one too. $5.00 + $5.99 shipping.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...%3DI%26otn%3D2

That will work perfectly fine also. For those people who loves ebay bidding.

Very interesting! I didn't know you could get away with this without a regulator. I play paintball competitively and have a bunch of extra parts laying around. I will see if I have any extra on/off valves that I could use

This is a pretty awesome build. It makes it quite cheap to setup. I found some gauges on ebay for super cheap and the link above makes it only $10 for an asa. That puts the whole build around $40-$45 for a co2 system.

Not sure where in Roseville you're located at. But they changed their name recently. It's now called "Predator Paintball Reloaded"

4626 Watt Ave
North Highlands, CA 95660

It's a little small shop, it's about 2 blocks from Golden Corral Restraunt that opened up recently opened up near there. Keep in mind, it's a small shop so look for tiny buildings. Next door is a donut shop if I remembered correctly. Haven't been there for about 6 months.

Having a hell of a time finding a double threaded input valve. All i can find on ebay are the mini's. Anyone seen some anywhere?

Edit: Nm, found the black one you also had for $30 on Ebay.


Quick question, every post I find on different forums say these paintball tanks only last 3-4 weeks. Have you ever had one last 5-6 months?

I bought the one from the link above on a whim because it was so cheap I wanted to try it out. What I was sent looks nothing like what is in the auction picture...but it does have 2 threaded inputs (also has a curious looking piece that I think is supposed to be a handle). The only problem is that the threaded inputs are not directly across from each other. I haven't gathered the other parts yet to know if this will be a problem. I'll try posting a pick of what I got. I must say, it's a decent looking chunk of metal for $5, just not sure if it will work for what we want it to lol....

Here is a pic of what I received. I shot it at an angle so you could see both threaded inputs:
