c/a cartridge valve

I am wondering if a sheridan cartridge valve can be side tapped for c/a and how I would go about doing it. Thanks for any help.

Yeah, you just have to be careful.

I haven't done one, but know they can be tapped.

That being said... way back i sent a gun to Tim McMurray and when I got it back he told me that the lower was a different body because the pgp I sent was a cartridge valve and he couldn't stand working on them so he swapped mine for one he had laying around that was a original non-cartridge valve.

OK thats good to know.
Do I need to tap the body and the valve or just the body and a hole in the valve.
Thanks for any help guys

You would probably put a hole in the body and drill and tap a hole in the valve but you would almost certainly have to braze your fitting in there.. which for a cartridge valves sucks because then you can't ever remove it.

I know I have seen someone make a front end for the valve that is drilled and tapped so you can run your CA line out the front, or throw a 90 or Tee fitting into the front of the valve and then you are just drilling a hole in the body and if need be modifying your pump handle.

Just drill and tap your valve body . On the gun's valve tube, just drill a hole for your pipe fitting to pass through.

If it's setup for 12 grams i would just get a dummy 12 gram and have a hole made in the side of the lower tube. Just a thought so you could maintain functionality of both.
