Degassing tool.. Is there another way/tool?

Postby LSS152 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 8:54 am

Guys I am getting ready to do a few modifications to my MRod. I do not have the degas tool. Is there another tool that will work or can I use the dry fire method with out messing anything up? I have put in a order for the tool but it may be after Christmas before I get it. Thanks for the help!

A few techniques:

Loosen the gauge slowly till it leaks a bit, once the air stops, loosen it about a 1/4 turn till it leaks bit again, repeat till the gauge reads zero

If you have a pump, pump the rifle up, just enough so that the fill valve opens, then slowly unscrew the vent valve so that both the pump and rifle vent. Might take a few tries to get all the air out.

or just dry fire it till empty, no big deal..

In the absence of a degas tool which is the best method, a steel rod or equivalent tool and a hammer tapping on the valve stem or hammer is way quicker than shooting it down. Much safer than unscrewing the gauge too.

Slowly unscrewing the gauge seems like a good idea...but when I did it, the gauge popped off and hit me in the inner thigh right next to the nads!!! One inch to the left and I woulda went down like a sack. That hurt even through my thick jeans!!! The gauge face was cracked when I picked it up off the floor. The threads in the gauge adapter pulled right out and allowed that to happen...probably didnt let it leak down low enough but still....Scared the livin bejeezuz outta me too and left a mark!!!.

No disrespect intended to PB_Matrix or anyone else. Just sayin...and relaying a halfway funny story. Do it one of the other ways.

Go with the rifle vertical barrel up, and fill and then slowly crack the bleed valve. Lets air out slowly and under control. You will have to gently open the bleed valve as the pressure gets lower. As always you are dealing with High pressure air, be careful.
