Looks like a stock wgp valve that someone machined out for more flow.

If they did machine it... it is pointless as there is only a limited volume of air that can go past the valve stem and through the hole in the body that supplies air to the bolt.

orracle valves are stainless, but they have pretty much (if not exactly) the same dimensions as other stock WGP valves. just throwing that little tidbit out there.

Im not saying its an orracle. But i do believe it to be a modified 2k wgp valve because of the cup seal design.

When holding the thing in my hands and really taking a good look at it, I'm very sure this isn't someone's backyard machining. The pic is terrible and shows that the previous owner overtightened the set screw too much (hence the squishing of the metal). But otherwise, it looked like it was like this factory.

I've been looking into the suggestion of it being a 99 freeflow valve, but information is next to zero so far.

I've got a guy who apparently has "tons" of extra freeflow internals and parts, and I'll see what he has. If anyone actually has older freeflow valves I can compare to, he does. (plus I hope to score some cheap parts in the process)

Why doesn't anyone ever believe me? lol
The valve and the FF Millennium that it came out of.

Thanks for the pic. I simply wanted confirmation before I took it as fact.

So far everything about this cocker has had people divided with different answers. I was first told it was a freeflow, then warped sportz. I knew at the very least the milling was done by freeflow on the early warped dark cockers, but now I know that I have FF lower internals as well.

Btw, I was completely impressed by the lug in this thing as well. Not a typical square lug like most, but instead was cuped on the end like a ball. With the slider back on it, it is smoooooooth.

No problem! I was just playing with you, glad I could help.

Taken from Wolf13 a mod on CC.
sort of the same frame as the darks, but you also had the demonics, they were marketed by roughneck but they were freeflow to the hilt. as for the dark, because freeflow marketed the last run as freeflow teardrop bodies after warped dropped the contract you could legitly include a teardrop as a freeflow.

But more people know them as warped darks.
