The plastic barb that screws into the body runs straight thru the 3 way and is glued in place (That's how it is on the VIBE/ENVY solenoid). You just have to becareful when you put on a new hose. I find a little spit helps.
This whole gun is just an ENVY/VIBE with a new name and new frame, for beginners and field rentals. The only thing new is a 3 way and frame other then that, it's still the same
I find using a "DERMA-SAFE.com" blade helps with installation
. You should never have to remove the 3 way unless it's leaking or needs to be replaced. Or, if you decide to convert to electro.
