Robtown valve stem broke

Has anyone else had this happen? I was playin today and all the sudden air came gushing out the barrel. Took it home, opened it up and saw there's nothing sticking out for the ram to hit.

I had valve body bend past working tolerances and have to be replaced. Initially Jared thought it was a bent valve stem but the whole body was bent.

Not a broken stem like yours but definitely a RT valve that had to be replaced.

Oh man! That sucks, I've never seen that happen. I'd ask aka if they still have parts for those though laying around. Or maybe try to get an 11/16" tornado valve and replace the RT valve.

I have already paid for a new RT valve. Just waiting for Jared to ship it.

To go back to the tornado, I would have to replace the hammer too.
