GX-3 Degassing when tank is removed?

Hi all,

Working on a recently acquired GX-3 and have noticed the marker just started degassing once the tank is removed. All the components in the Gen X-2 reg are brand new and it wasn't doing this before. No issues when the gun is aired up, regulator seems to properly regulate pressure and the marker doesn't leak at all. Would this be an issue with the regulator or some other internal component?

Like it wooshes after a few seconds? I have a gun or 2 that does that, nothing crazy, if you shoot while removing your tank it might solve it or just shoot when the tank is off

I had a reg that did that. There's no problem with that happening, maybe a small annoyance, but it's not a danger or anything. I lubed the reg though, and it never happened again. I think it's caused by friction on the piston.

Some regs hold air after degassing, others don't. I don't think the ANS ones I've used ever did.

Good to know its not an issue, I'm used to a CP regulator on my other marker which definitely holds air.

I think its far safer for it to degas when you take the tank off.

I have shot myself with a gun that had no tank. I didnt realize it was still on tossed it on a chair, It fired (electro) & shot me in the leg & near point blank. Gun had been sitting for a hour or more without a tank.
