Its been a while but should come out the back.

Start at the end opposite of the of the pin valve. There will be a split ring or another type of retaining ring that I can't name. Remove the ring and the the whole valve should just come apart.

i see the little ring

its not a C clip, its like a spring washer thing
how do i remove it?

there has to be a trick to it

Use a dental pick to take that split ring out. It can be a little finicky but if you take your time and don't force it it will come out.

the retainer ring is made like a key ring. You have to find the end of it and get a pick under it, and pry it up and around.

tippmann pretty much made them non user serviceable so that field owners would buy tons of complete valves at 25 bucks a pop.- thankfully they've gone to a c clip on the ft12.

While it is a pain to disassemble, you can still do it. I believe model98.org has detailed instructions on how to do it. You can also order a bunch of the old split rings from tippmannparts.com

What i did for servicing these is took a 2x4 block of wood drilled a whole a little larger than the valve placed a rag over the whole put valve down in the whole with the rag between the block of wood and the valve (pin side down in the whole) making sure that were the air line goes in the valve is still exposed... then with a large alen key press the brass plate down until you can see the large alen key threw the air line whole and then place a smaller alen key in the air line whole... then this takes the spring pressure off the clip ring and makes it a little less difficult to remove with a o-ring pick... after the clip is out you can press down with the large alen key again and remove the alen key from the air line whole to service the valve...
