"The Bomb" 3 way valve
From ShockTech
by Bill Mills   July 2000

OK, 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.
