Another way to remove a P-series valve

Without using the valve tool? I'm trying to minimize cost, so am posting this in hopes that some one has come up with something.

I will also be working on the issue as well.

Well you have to use a valve tool to get the jam nut out. There's links to a couple DIY ones in one of the stickies. The measurements for the tip are there as well. The threaded end used to pull the valve out is another story.

After getting the Jam nut out, use a pick to get the lead seal broken free. It should come out easily after that.

If you strip or cross thread the jamb nut by not using the right tool, all the money you "saved" will help pay for the new gun you will then have to buy.
Titus had some tools for sale.

I bought a 1/4" nutdriver. I just need to get rid of the lead seal. A pick you say?

All of the lead seals I have encountered have been too stubborn for a pick. I just use the guide for taking out the valve as normal. When you go to remove the chamber plug, it will just take some more force.

I managed to get the lead seal out, not sure what is next unless it's just smashing it with a hammer as hard as I could.

I have encountered a PGP with "The Loader" out of California, and an extended barrel. Same situation is bound to happen.

Sheridan valve tools have a threaded reverse side, which screws onto the valve guide so you can pull it out. Without a normal valve tool, you'll want to take a wooden dowel and smash it out from the front.

Make sure its a 12 gram and not a back bottle. That'd be a little hard to hammer out.

I feel like when people try to work around the valve tool, they spend more time, effort and sometime money trying to fix the problem than they would if they spent all of 18 dollars to get the valve tool and do it right the first time.
