To remove the valve by using a 3/8" bolt would you have to drill out the centre of it or will the shaft that sticks out be able to be pushed in by the bolt? I would rather do it this way than air it up to be on the safe side. The air tank will be another problem since I do not see any 10 oz tanks for sale, will a 9 oz tank fit under the barrel (just in case nobody wants to refill an old tank)? On the tank itself, it shows DOT-E7737-1800, CLIFF DIV, 7-90, Aluminum Alloy. I cannot wait to fire this thing, it is built pretty solid and has not 1 spec of rust anywhere for being probably 20 years old at least. Thank you all for the help, this site is great for info.

If you plan on keeping the gun, it is easiest to just get the removal tool. They aren't expensive, but I know it is a pain the rear to have to buy one. My friend has like 2-3 removal tools, so I just use his. But in the long run, since you might need to adjust the velocity, just get one.

They are a great gun though that require minimal work. The orings normally last forever as long as you keep them oiled up and dump a lot of oil in the ASA when you air it up. They are so durable, when they first started making them, they were hooked up to an industrial sized tank of CO2 and they kept firing it until it was basically encased in ice....and it kept working perfectly.

I believe the pin will push in as I don't think my removal tool is center drilled, I'll have to check this weekend.
Your concern with the bottle should be unfounded as the regulation states that all bottles under 2" in diameter are exempt. However the owner of our new local field had only heard about the hydro dating and was unaware of the exemption so would not fill out bottles at first. 3.5, 7 and 9 oz bottles are all under 2" along with the 10 oz you have and will all fit the gun.
