Emptying Gas From Magazine After Shooting?
Posted 24 August 2011 - 06:34 AM
I've read on multiple airsoft forums thats its good to keep your magazines pressurized when not in use because it keeps the o-rings fresh. But the KWA manual advises to NEVER store your magazine with gas in it. For reference, I have the M9 PTP.
What's the official verdict?
If I'm supposed to empty it after I'm done shooting for the day, is it better to release the gas using the button valve on the magazine or just dry fire the remaining gas out?

I always discharge excess gas by pressing the gas release valve and it has not caused any problems. I would avoid dry firing if you can since it will cause unnecessary wear on the internals.

As for discharging the gas, NEVER discharge from the purge button. Doing so can cause your o-rings to dry out. The recommended way to purge gas from the mag is from the fill valve.
