Bobbed Valves

I have a stock valve and was wondering if it is possible to get it bobbed without ruining the acid wash? I'm a newb to bobbed valves and stuff.

Are you getting a gauge put on it?

You'll see raw aluminum on the back of it if not.

Yea would get it bobbed so I could put a gauge on the back specifically.

Well, the whole back would be raw aluminum after being "bobbed.". Otherwise, the rest of the original anno would be fine.

Ok so educate me on the difference between a bobbed valve and a gauged valve. Sorry total newb on this but seems like a worthwhile investment.

Bobbed valve = shorter valve
Gauged valve = regular length valve body with a gauge

If you have the money, get this: ASP Online Store: Phantom Bobbed Valve Body w/ Dual Gauge Ports

And maybe have it annoed to match, or even just run it black.

I haven't been happy with bobbed valve work, it generally looks, well, hacked off, but maybe someone here could do a better job.

Honestly, and some may disagree, I found bobbed valves to be a waste of money. The couple of shot per 12 gram increase in efficiency wasn't worth the shootdown issues (even when playing SC).

I'm on the opposite part of the bobbed spectrum. All my phantoms are bobbed. I have 2 from Punisher, 1 from ASP, 1 from SSC, one from brad Nestle and two from flory. In all honesty the added shot isn't much but in SC every extra shot counts! Another bonus for me was being able to add the gauge on the back. It's nice to see how your gas is holding up sometimes. I don't have shootdown issues ever and I shoot quite fast for a SC player. Might be the weather I play in

One of my first bobbed backs was done by Brad nestle. It was hacked off but he put the gauge on very close so you can't see the raw aluminum.

But yeah if you are getting one, it might be nice to get it re-anoed or get a raw and have it match anoed. My last two markers were built raw and are going to get anoed.

Does a gauge with CO2 actually do anything? CO2 boils off to maintain constant pressure until it has almost expired. What sort of readings are you able to get?

EDIT: And it certainly could be the weather.

Hawaiian weather. well 800psi is a fresh 12ie. 600psi is around my 2nd or 3rd tube and 400psi means change or die LOL. But in truth I only look at it once in a long while or what I remember. So no it doesn't do anything for me. I tend to judge 12 grams by my shots. Gauges are just pretty looking nothings on the back in all honesty LOL.

I shoot about 40 rounds to a 12 gram. I can eek out 1-3 shots if I am lucky.
