what is that other valve? it's got some funky buffer going on, and nice external blowback paths. or is that the Eko valve? yea, I'm this much out of the loop in blowback tech... to think I used to call myself an expert ten years ago with blowbacks!
The small valve in the foreground is the Eko valve.
The larger valve behind it is a Kingman balanced valve from the VS2/VS3.
Neat but overly-complicated bit of tech that Kingman experimented with and ultimately abandoned.
