Question ACI Valve

Hey I'm looking for an ACI Valve to fit a Griffin.

I know a few people out there are thinking "why? " . But this marker is special to me, and that is the only reason i want to fix the leak.

So if any on knows a place where i can find ACI parts, or knows of a different company that has a valve with a .79 inch (2cm) diameter let me know.

I have tried Spyder and that valve is to small, but that is the type of valve i need, one with a cup seal and valve body. The griffin is a blow back marker, so i figure if i can get a valve assembly that will fit, i can make it work with a different spring and some elbow grease.

Thanks

From Jerry's site:

"The average player spills approximately 100-300 paintballs each time he or she plays from pouring from plastic bag to the pods or hopper or just dropping the bag. "

What kind of people does he play with?!

There is a place in the Victoria B.C. Canada Area that sells Maverick Pumps (New) I called there and the guy that is putting the pumps together is going to look for a valve in his "warehouse" for me, I call a few days before i put this up and just got an e-mail last night, i should know by later today if it is going to work.

The company is Bastion Paintball, the guy on the phone is really good about things to, Considering I live on the other side of the country.

I am going to call the Jerry guy to, I will keep updating..........

Any other ideas?

Thanks For The Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

do you have the old valve body? measure it precisely and let me know, i have a ton of old odd bodies lying about. what happened to the old one? STBB valve bodies rarely get damaged, (except for the VM-68...) but cup seals go bad, o-rings dry out, etc.

Must have been watching me at Castle last Fall. That defenders box is not user friendly
