“Renegade_626”John, You don’t have to degas a PCP? does it not ruin the comments having air pressure stored in the weapon for a long time? i assume this was the case
 


Degassing a PCP between shooting sessions is not necessary. If I’m not mistaken when storing for an extended period you should shoot down or degas to the minimum pressure-that is the point where you would recharge the gun. Some pressure in the gun will keep the seals and valve free of dirt. In addition, most PCPs are pretty simple to work on, making a reseal if necessary pretty easy. There are a few PCPs that operate on lower fill pressure which will make filling with a pump or scuba tank more practical.
