sheridan pmi-1 12gram stuck!

i have an old pmi one and theres a 12gram stuck in there, i can move it around but it gets stuck on the threads when i try to fling it out. Im not quite sure how to explain it, I do not have a valve knockout is there any good way to get it out of there? So far i have drilled a hole into the 12gram and pulled as hard as i can but it is not coming out.

I suppose you can try to heat up the threads to make the neck slightly bigger. Do it with a heat gun, not a torch lol.

Small drill, self-tapping bolt, and some pliers?

Make sure to hold the marker, barrel facing down. That way no shavings go in the valve area.

i got it out with a drill and a file, i drilled a hole into it and managed to get the file stuck inside it and twisted it out which took all night to do. Than this morning i put another 12ie in and now its stuck again lol.

the obstruction is the threading part in the front of the gun, it is a like a centimeter too thick and the 12ies are just geting stuck once they are put into the gun, They can move freely once inside the gun but cannot get out because of the threading peice.

1. examine 12 gm's for oxidation. I use a teflon scrubber to make them nice and shiny, it helps keep this from happening.

2. take a bamboo skewer (shish kebab kind) and put a big dot of super glue on it and hold it on the end of the cart until it holds, then pull it out. Don't get glue in the threads.

3. a quickie fix that works sometimes is to cock the gun, and shake it sharply downwards and pull the trigger when it's at the bottom. If there's even a puff of gas left in it, that will push it out.


I HATE it when that happens

how ODD! and your co2 nut threads arent egged or anything?no dent on the outside of the bottom tube at the end? if not, i agree with wharfrat, clean them 12 grams, maybe change brands, or just clean the threads...if not the teflon scrubber mentioned above, try a brillo pad wrapped around a finger, maybe with comet or some other non-abrasive cleanser to act as a polishing compound...
