so i installed a Virtue QEV works great btw!

i took it off to do some maintinance on the gun and noticed the little o-ring got ripped in the process.

my questions are...

1) Where can i get another o-ring that small
AND
2) should i be using teflon tape?

well unless I am mistaken you should be able to use teflon tape or blue locktite instead of the o-ring, I would recommend getting some teflon tape either way that stuff is just too handy :huh:

if you really just want that o-ring replaced you can try your local hardware store in the plumbing department (where the teflon tape can be found as well)

good luck to you

But go ahead and pick up a new o-ring the next time you go to the local field. It will help prevent annoying leaks.
