unless you have the tea bag mod done then they go about 10,000 cases.

Ive never had a problem with a valve, all that really could go wrong with it would be the cup seal which is replaceable. Ive been shooting vikings since 2003 and Ive never had a problem with one.

I have been told that the valves stem (the only part that should ever have any form of wear), should last the life of a viking or excalibur. At one time I know AKA would replace for free any of their tornado valve's if they ever went bad. Not shure what their current policy is though. If it isn't having issues, I wouldn't worry. IMO The tornado is one of the best designed valves out there.

Don't forget, the teabag mod also increases your efficiency, ROF, and helps you loose weight. Not shure If Dan Voils is still offering that service.

AKA still will replace valve pins from a Tornado valve. I did it about a year ago with a cocker valve. I cannot remember if I had to send them the valve stem or the entire valve, but I remember them giving me a new stem.
