Leaving Markers Pressurized

So I am new to field ownership and I left a few of my upgrade (envy) markers gassed up over the week. When I came back to those markers they would not cycle. I assume I did something wrong by leaving them gassed up but degassing upgrade markers adds to takedown time. What did I do and how do I fix?

I have been considering adding Enmy's to my fleet, would they have an issue remaining Pressurized?

Sometimes, the bolt will stick forward when it is gassed up, and left out. I use a barrel swab to stick the bolt reward again, and it cycles fine. Give it a try. Also, check the batteries, 90% of the time if I have a problem with a GoG or SP marker, I put fresh batteries in.

You may want to look into getting a batch of cheap on/off asa's for them at some point also. Then degassing will be much easier.
Also, in regards to the eNMEy's I'd say get those for sure! They shoot great and are very reliable, plus don't require batteries.

Leaving them gassed up is a bad idea period. Its akin to leaving a pistol cocked with a full magazine. Mechanically it probably wont hurt anything, but it isn't a good idea.

How long does it really take to unscrew a few tanks? Leaving them pressurized is probably not good for the o-rings long term.

Leaving a marker pressurized is never a good idea. Just take the couple of extra minutes it would take and unscrew the tanks. Saves you from more hassle in the long run.
