A humble suggestion

Well, other people may hate me for suggesting this but maybe, just maybe, you could make them just a little more expensive to be worth your time.

It would be presumptuous of me to suggest how much you should sell them for, but I just saw three valves sell on ebay in the last 48 hours, two for about $180 and the last for $200. Again, it seems that if they're available, they will sell no matter the price. I saw someone try to sell one for $350 (although I'm sure it didn't sell at anywhere near that price), but the point is that, honestly, if people are willing to pay more than MSRP for a used one (which you must have discovered by now is true in this case), maybe you do have grounds to charge more for them, because maybe they are indeed worth more. I wouldn't think of it as price gouging for two reasons, firstly because in this case it looks like the only other option is not making the valves, which would be heartbreaking for consumers, and secondly because maybe your idea is worth more than you sold it for. Maybe your current job wasn't the first $100/hr idea you guys have ever had (NOT suggesting that you sell the valves for like $800, good lord haha), and maybe simply making this project within your means would be a happy median for you guys and the consumers.

As a final request, if it simply isn't possible for you to do it, there must be loads of people who would jump at the chance to make them for you if you paid them $15/hr, I mean I think there was someone a couple pages back who volunteered. Heck I'd even think about doing it if it was closer to me. I put so much money into paintball that it would seem almost inappropriate to get paid for it.

Oh and I would still take that 05/06 Black Magic valve the moment it becomes available. Seems like they're even more rare than the standard ones.

Hoping for the best here

Yeah, I need the 11/16" valve too. Have an SR setting in my closet going to waste because I want an MQ for it.

I would love to see the mq come back in even a somewhat limited run for $150. Bring the prices back down to... $200-260 for a used one that's sat in a gun for years is just not right

Agreed. I'll take one too if you make them. I don't even have a cocker anymore but if I can get my hands on an MQ2 for $150 I'll have a new project on my hands. Let me help you assemble them!

I am sure i could make them if i had one to copy. May even make some changes. I used to have a bunch of them but dont have any longer.

So if you have one laying around, that works i would make one for that person that loans me one to look at. Pm me

I think the issue was something to do with the solenoids themselves. I don't remember what exactly though. It is in this thread somewhere...

The solonoid itself has to be purchased in large lots (thousands) from the manufacturer to make it affordable.

Glad I have a brand new one in my parts box project. Still debating if I should slot the body in the event that it were to fail and I would need a hammer and spring.

Doubt there will be more runs of the MQ2's judging from the makers previous statements...

I have specs on pilot-springs to the person asking above here.. I also have specs on poppet-springs.

As far as parts go i have: thousands of urethane dots, lots of plungers, poppets, pilot-bodies, and solenoids..

Aswell as 10+ complete MQ1's and a few MQ2's..

I haven't made myself a sales-thread yet, but I will as soon as I get the time to provide pictures and descriptions of everything..

hard to sell stuff like that when you are in that part of the world and most of the buyers are in this part of the world. i think a better idea is to give them to me?
