Gas-powered pellet pistols are accurate and powerful at close range. They are popular with shooters everywhere for use in target practice, competition and vermin control. The CO2-filled gas cylinder of your weapon holds air that propels the BB or pellet toward your target when the trigger is pulled. The only problem is that the cylinder has to be replaced every couple of dozen shots. Changing cylinders in your gun is an easy process, though, as long as you follow the proper procedure.
Aim the weapon at the ground and pull the trigger to be sure there is no ammunition in the chamber. Activate the safety mechanism on the pistol.
Grab the bottom of the textured side of the pistol grip and pull it away from the pistol to remove the old cylinder from inside the handle. Pop the old cylinder out of the retaining clip and discard it.
