"The Bomb" 3 way valve
by Bill Mills July 2000
everyone in pneumatics calls it a 4 way valve - 1 input, 2 outputs, and
two exhausts - but for Cocker users, it's known as a 3 way. It's
the heart of the cocking system, controlling the flow of gas to the cocking
ram. The stock 3 way, and most aftermarket models feature two seals,
and exhaust on the end, while being held together with a c-clip.
The new Shocktech 3 way uses a stainless steel rod, making it much stronger,
and less prone to bending damage when the grip frame is removed.
It has 3 interior seals, and the exhaust ports vent out the sides.
There are no other parts, the rod simply slides out when the grip frame
is removed making cleaning and seal inspection a breeze.
