co2 help

What is the completely proper way to remove a co2 tank? I just want to be completely sure I am doin this right. And is the method that you provide to me (if you do) a universal method to all guns? Becasue I have a variety of guns ranging from lower end to higher end electros. Stupid question but all help is appreciated. thanks.

The "Trick" Is to unscrew your tank 3/4 of the way.. and when it starts leaking air start pulling the trigger .... that helps you save ORING's and doesnt use up as much air....

Depends on your ASA that you are putting it in to, if it has a bleed hole (when you remove the tank it vents to the side) you can pretty much just twist it off. If the bottle O-ring is really cold it will blow it, especially if it has no vent. I never try to remove a bottle unless it has had time to warm up some...

so if it doesn't have a bleed hole, just turn the tank a couple of times or until its starts leaking(or just before it start leaking?) and just dry fire until it doesn't recock? I guess mine doesn't have a bleed hole because when I just unscrewed it, alot of gas was shooting out and at the very end when I got it off, there was a little pop right as it came off (burst of air pressure). So do I just follow what I said in the first sentence? If so, do start pulling the trigger when It starts leaking or right b4 it starts leaking?
