when you unscrew it, make sure there is no paint in there first then unscrew while shooting untill it doesnt shoot anymore. Your o ring should be good then.

Follow budha's advice for pin valves. If you have an on/off valve, turn it off first, then fire the gun to empty all the co2 before unscrewing the tank. By doing it this way, you relieve some of the pressure on the o-ring as well as reducing the chance of freezing it, giving longer life. Don't worry about the lost gas, at most it is only 4-5 shots worth, nothing to fret over.
Ilove this game!

when your unscrewing your tank, that gas that is let loose is only the gas still left in the hose. So when you unscrew your gun and dry fire, your just firing out the gas left in the hose, so you should have basically no gas leak out where you screw your tank in.

also if it seems a little loose or white leave it alone for a little while come back later it should have shrunk down if not replace it.

Unscrew, and shoot the gun (with NO paint) at the same time, ur o ring should be fine then. if its white, and stretched out, like Thumper_Rush says, leave it for awhile, then come back, it will most likely have shrunken down, back to normal

the co2 that escapes when you unscrew the gun can't be saved it int your gun not your tank

rman you made sense until after saved. That's OK it probably wasn't important anyways, seeing as how the question was answered and the thread died.
Just back into the sport after being out of it for five how things have changed
