These are BSPT (British Standard Pipe Thread) not NPT as advertised. 3/4" BSPT is clearly moulded on the side of the valve. Which leads me to believe that it was most likely imported from China or Japan. Clearly the description needs to be updated to reflect the actual thread standard.

Also not a full port valve, not that it matters to me but it may to you.

We thank this customer for bringing this part correction to our attention. The A160 should, in fact, be a national pipe thread. Our stock was mixed with some BSP items, and consequently this customer will have to be sent the correct ball valve.
