  1. OMG what an improvement! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 10th 2017

    I was using a different brand of solenoid that work at 6v and sounded sharp and strong "on the bench" but were sluggish opening/closing when used under pressure (which caused all sorts of miserable cannon performance, basically they never got a chance to close between firing).
    While these BC solenoids actually sound quieter/weaker "on the bench", under 150psi they are night-and-day better - sharp response on and off with lots of flow. I am replacing all of my existing solenoids with these BS solenoids.

  2. appearance, function, materials, cost 4 Star Review

    They look cool with black anodized finish and brushed stainless. It just goes with my silver and black "raiders" theme. The use of aluminum is something I highly applaud. Cost beats Kip solenoids to death and that is good coming in at about $40 verses $55 or $60. Initial testing resulted in some firing failures. This is due to some roughness on the inside of the actuator tube. I will be working on cleaning this up a bit before battle. The only other complaint is that the coil is a little bulky resulting in an extra tight fit in the stainless casing. That tight fit might cause the actuator tube to be slightly off center. It is unclear if this will affect function. A plus is that Kip actuators can be used as replacement parts. I purchased 5 of these solenoids so I will get a chance to test them in "bulk".
