Gas Cylinder Lock Screw Valve
 

Part name: Gas Cylinder Lock Screw Valve

Part Function: The Gas Cylinder Lock Screw Valve is responsible for several things. First it is threaded through the Gas Cylinder Lock and into the gas Cylinder to hold the Gas Cylinder Assembly in place.

Second there is a tiny relief valve built into this part which is used for shunting the gas for rifle grenade launching.

Special Notes: none.
