So I plan on integrating some things into a hornet shell but I was wondering it I had the hornet pump unplugged, would it be able to blow the airtank or are all op valves just designed to work with every tank? Thanks for your help... This could very well be my new primary...

EDIT: Is there such a thing as a y barbed connector but with 3 instead of 2 leads? Like the pump goes to one but then there are 3 more to add tubes to...

1. An OP valve is an OP valve and will vent at the designed pressure regardless of what it's used with. The Hornet OP valve is set somewhere around 35 psi.

2. Not in the barb size you'll need. The tubing size is rather obscure (5/32 or 4mm). Just use two tees.

I think what your looking for is a cross, but I don't think they have them in barbed, but I know they have them in Instant fittings.

Alrighty... So slug say that I am going to be using a smdtg for one or 2 of the guns... Do you happen to know if it will blow? Or just use trial and error and waste one? Thankyou maeric but I think ill just go with what slug said and use 2 "t" barbes and not have to order offline.
