While trying to unscrew the tank, dryfire the marker. Some times that drop in pressures helps from time to time.

if ur looking for an on/off asa, i have 2 CP ones dust and polished black, pm me if ur interested.

but, make sure u have some grease on the oring on ur tanks reg, that helps a little with the smoothness of taking it out, and maybe a drop of oil or tri-flow on the threads inside the asa...

Comeon andrew, no BSTing in the beginner's section

I just glob grease onto tank threads and Oring, then roll with it.

Also: Don't be a wimp. You'll need to force the unscrewing of the tank a bit before it eases up.

I was just saying if he is looking I have some. He sounded like hey may want one when he said it didn't have 1.

But OP, is it just your tank your gun does it with? Or have u used other tanks and had the same problem?

If its just your tank, I'd suggest looking into a new bonnet. But if it's every tank, then I'd suggest using grease on the oring/threads. If that doesn't work, look into a new Asa.

I don't think his tank bonnet is causing any stick. It is because the ASA has no way to depressurize in that area until he unscrews it enough. That is why On/Off ASA's work. My guess is that all of the tanks in the world are going to do that.

Like stated above, try shooting while unscrewing the tank. Once you get it off, just put some grease on the threading and look into getting and On/Off ASA. CP ones are great, but anything will get the job done.

This is correct. I sometimes have a problem getting the tank off of my blitz. The nice thing about Azodins markers is they do come with a diversion mount molded onto the grip frame.

What? Are you thinking of the O-ring in the fill nipple, because that isn't what he is talking about.

Moral of the story is, get an on/off ASA or dry fire to remove. Maybe have your threads inspected because you might have cased them and they could cross thread later down the road...

This is why tank regulators should have stuck with brass threads. These new aluminum threads might be lightweight, but they're hell to get off and wear out much faster. Maybe that's by design...

the part of a tank regulator that screws down into the bottle, has a groove cut down it length-wise, so if the bottle is unscrewed from the regulator it vents all the air from the bottle before it flys off. no one will be harmed, but the person who was unscrewing it will probably need a new change of pants though.

If you have to use tools to get a tank off you're doing it wrong. This is a good way to unscrew the regulator and start leaking gas everywhere. As everyone has said, just manhandle it a little, and if it absolutely refuses to come off, even with someone helping you, then try to blow off some more pressure, like A LOT of pressure through dry firing until the PSI weakens.

That groove isn't always there.

A little tri flo on your threads only will help. Unscrew a little dry fire, unscrew a little more dry fire, repeat until you have no pressure left between the reg and asa.

guys, look at this thread. It's died almost half a year ago. I think the problem would have been resolved by the end of it.
