Another post from me.

Ok, my green gas came today and I have put around 50 bb's through so far. hop seems to be adjusted well, and it is shooting very smooth. Shots are kinda wild, but I'm contributing that to wind and silicon on the hop up. I did just like the video said and used just a dab one initial time to clean grease and such on it. So far so good. Wait for the wind to calm down and put some more through and check accuracy.

Definitely has a cool factor!

Another question. The manual say to empty the gas from the magazine after use. How do you release it?

Also, in my precharged pneumatic rifles it's better to leave pressure in the chamber at all times. I wonder what's different about this application?

I usually take the mag outside and while pointed at a safe direction just push the release valve.  You can leave a bit of gas in the mag but I like to completely empty out all the gas for safety sake.  Don't want any thing preloaded with my son running around the house.

No, the gas ejects out the top not at the valve.

is it just a myth, or is it true that pressing the valve decreases the life of the gas parts on the mag. Idk, I've heard it from a few different people just wondering

I heard that too but never really ran into any problems.  I have never needed to replace any parts on the mag and I have been doing that for over a year.

Yeah with my GBB's I usually do it, as long as I'm not using propane or I still have BB's in the mag. I try not to do it too often just incase

That's true with any pneumatic air rifle, be it a precharged or pump. Maybe I'll leave some in the mag. I guess if it causes a failure I'll just get a loan for another one.
