check-it valves?

From what I've heard a check-it valve lets you hold enough air to shoot once after the 12 gram is removed. Am i correct?

Can this be done to any gun that uses (or can use) 12 grams? Also, how do you do this?

hopefully this will work with my USP. I'm gonna fake some people out big time next game...

It's "check valve." Check-it is the company that made the unimount.
I've never seen it done to a USP. I'm sure it's possible, given some effort. Normally I believe it is placed in the male end of a 12gram adapter.

YOu can make one using a small bearing, oring, and spring, though the USP might be cramped for room.

Usually you see them added when there is an external line present.

They are a little dangerous, in that they can shoot with the 12gram removed, and if the downstream path is flooded, FPS can spike extremely high (the reason they were banned).

But, still very handy when playing with 12grams. Smarter players will listen to the sound of your gun hissing to know when to charge you.

I made a check vavlve one time for my nelspot. I got like a rubber novelty key chain. I used a hole punch then punched out a piece the size of the inside of valve. The valve spring held it down. I would get 1-2 shots when I dumped the co2. Can't even be detected when being checked for check valves.
