Co2 Push Valve

First off, the pressure of CO2 when it finally gets to the bolt is much less than the pressure direct from the tank. I mean, less than 500psi. Wanna know what that 'velocity adjust knob' really is? Part of a regulator. It is a flow regulator (usually), but still a regulator none-the-less.
Now, on to why I wanted to post:
Hammer valves, fun stuff...
Piston valves: even better. Try and either make a manually-operated (much like the valve in an AT3k or the like) one, or use something pneumatic. I still need to try my hand at a manually-actuated piston valve, just because I have shit-luck with pneumatic-actuation, or lack of actuation really...
What is this for? Do I want to know? Should anyone here know?
Take a valve from, oh, I dunno, if you don't care about flow, a pressure washer handle. Let's just say that 4500psi with maximum temperature of over 300F and minimum of less than -100F (or so I have heard...) is okay for CO2, but even still, the limited flow removes any real 'cool-down' effect of the carbonated dioxygen. That and regulators are mandatory for repeatable results in the ways of performance. Price does not matter when maximums of such gasses are used. You get what you pay for.
