Alright so in my search for mag parts I noticed the many different kinds of valves. I figure you pros can lend me your knowledge on this subject. So far the list for me looks like
Updated list for posterity
- AIR valve
- Classic RT
- ReTro MicroMag
- Retro Pro
- ANS Phase II
My curiosity picks up at the centerfire valve as I just acquired an automag with one on it (well it's in the mail on it's way to me).
Another thing I noticed is the number of E-mag valves popping up for sale. Is there some inherent difference between the E-mag valve and the X-valve, which I understand is the current pinnacle of automag technology.
I've read up on the AGD virtual museum but it's not giving me the answers I want. Satisfy my curiosity and hunger for simple mechanical history. Thanks all.
