Default Valve Broken?

Hi,
I was kind of jamming at my valve to come out not knowing theres a screw..
So I was wondering are the stock valves on the Pilots durable or? like how would I know if it's broken or not?
Thanks

I think it would be pretty hard to damage it just by pushing on it trying to get it out without taking the screw out first. When you put it back together if you hear air leaking into your chamber where the paintball sits then there might be something wrong. Before you buy a new valve though, if you have a leak, change the o-rings and cup seal. If you still have a leak, then you might have damaged your valve.

depends on what you weere using to knock it out. If you used a wooden dowel I'd say it should be ok but if you used something like a screwdriver or metal rod....idk, I'd check it out good first....

damage to the front side of the valve would be worse than the back
