How to deplete air from tank?

So I received a 68/45 in the mail with a standard ninja reg... stupid as I was, aired it up before checking the internals. The tank leaks like crazy and spews air out. I find out a few days later that the guy I bought it from just threw the shims in the reg and forgot to mention it to me. So the shims are in some kind random order and I'm sure I destroyed it. The tank reads 4k on the gauge. I try to air it up through the gun - doesn't work. I tried to press in the little pin - doesn't work... I can even press it in w/ no problem, like the tank is completely empty. Which tells me the reg is done for? So how would I go about depleting the air so I can take the reg off to check it?

It's unlikely that you destroyed anything. But getting the air out could be sketchy. Since depressing the pin doesn't work, I would slowly turn the LP burst disc out while covering it with a towel and pointing away from anyone. Hopefully it'll start leaking before it's completely removed and doesn't fly out. It could, though. Or maybe there's a way to "pop" one of the burst discs? I dunno on that.

The gauge face could have shifted, if the pin is being depressed the easily.
Take it to a pro shop to have them loosen anything on it if you are still unsure if there is pressure in it. If you're not familiar with the systems or confident in doing it yourself, have a professional do it as it's a very very risky move to loosen anything yourself. Have them take the responsibility if something goes wrong.

I would take it to a local pro shop since shipping it to a certified facility would be a no-no with a full tank.

Yeah I'm pretty hesitant on doing it myself. I'm headed out to my field today so hopefully I can get one of the guys out there to give me some help with it. Thanks for the feedback guys.

So I was able to have a guy out at the field deplete it... took all the shims out and went to fill it up. Walked over to the chrono all excited n what not till I turned on my asa. The gun didn't air up. So I tried unscrewing the tank while the asa was on to see if it would give me any leaking indications, and still nothing. So I took the tank off and pressed the little pin in, and still was able to press it in as if the tank were empty. It was filled to 4k. So I'm a bit lost on this one lol.

Nah haven't been able to roll out to my local shop since it is quite a bit of distance from me.
