Is this a QEV or just a different type of fitting?

This piece is in my ion. I'm not an ion expert but it looked eerily live a QEV, also swivels around.
Assuming it IS a QEV, isn't it supposed to be on the back hose not front?





Thanks for any input gentlemen

It's a QEV. Pretty sure its the Smart Parts 360 QEV. Nah.. You've got it set up correctly. The QEV goes on the middle line. It allows the air infront of the bolt to escape quicker (by exiting the QEV instead of having to go through only the solenoid) to decrease the bolt cycle time.

These two animations should help explain things:

Thanks blind chicken. Its the same size as the back fitting though right? (not planning on moving it, just wondering cause a friend has a broken rear fitting, if this is the same size ill get him a qev and he can move the good fitting)

The threading size is different between the banjo fittings. The front and rear are identical, but the middle is different. One is 1/8" and the other is 5/32" but I can't remember which is which. Banjos may be available at your local shop, but if not, GOG has new ones for sale on their website.

Df it self has about 3-4 good psp fields, its home to some really good teams, Sykaryos paintball is the best field in DF and one of the best on Mx, every sunday you can find 6 to 8 teams (depending on the mod) playing anywere from d5 to d3 level
Monterrey and Tijuana are also good and are home (Tijuana) of TJ all star one of the best tems in Mx.

man that sounds pretty nice. Is the scene mostly speedball or do woodsballers get love too? My dad lives in matamoros (tamaulipas?), ive been wanting to go visit him but he says its too dangerous, one of my uncles i think lives dear DF and so maybe i could get my dad to meet me there instead

Thanks. i actually did have a bolt forward issue. cleaned the noid checked cleaned and lubed all the bolt and chamber orings and cleaned the qev (which using zdspb's guide i found wasnt leaking air when not connected to the body)
after i got it all together it worked just fine

i was actually surprised to find it there, added bonus as it wasnt in the description when i bought the ion

The Tippmann challenge had about 500-1000 people I think (maybe Iīm wrong) so woods get its share too.

The north = danger nowadays... too many narcs. keep it safe and visit the DF
