Superbolt Valve Stuck

Today I took apart the lower tube of my Superbolt pump and when I got to the valve after removing the locking nut and brass screw the valve would not budge after some vigorous tapping.
Any suggestions as to why that is or how to remove it?

remove your pump kit and use something to push it out from the front end. like a wooden dowel or a cut up plastic coat hanger

Tried it with an allen key.
Seems to be jammed in there pretty tight.
I can try it with a dowel.
Might be able to put more force without scratching something.

there is a retention screw that you need to undo. i do it with a really big allen key. once that is done, take the cocking rod and push through front side of the body.

Yes, thank you.
I'm already passed the hammer.
The problem is trying to knock out the valve.
It's really stuck in there for some reason.

eventho WD-40 is a big no-no when it comes to lubing your marker it might be a time to use it. just make sure you fully clean out the body and valve with a degreaser or a good soap job before you put everything back together. you'll need to replace your valve o-ring too. no pics are needed, i dont see how they can help in this situation

Yeah... It was just reallly, really stuck in there.
I had to take the cocking rod and hammer it out.
Created a few nicks on the top of the cup seal, should still work.
The valve oring had a nick, now I know why it was leaking slightly through the bolt air receiver.

its cool how you can completely dissasemble the gun with 2 allen keys and a cocking rod

well, now that the cupseal is worn, thats a great excuse for a new valve...

I just swapped out their aluminum valve with WGP's stock brass valve.
Not really sure what other valve is better than that.

Plus a screwdriver (sometimes) and a valve tool (all the time).
