    pending how good the Regs seat is sealing … YES the bottle can be off and still have a full plenum charge present.

     

    question how do I get rid of the air that's there after the bottle is off… as dryfireing will most likely ruin the gun with bottle removed

    Fire it … nothing going to happen. Best practice to get into, soon as you start unscrewing the bottle and you get the blast of air, fire a shot w/o pellet …. DONE

     

    You will hear action fire as normal followed with a long blast of air as plenum dump backwards threw the regulator.

    I herd that fireing it with out no will will bend one of the parts inside and ruin the gun

    Answer is in here from a veteran tuner.  Do what he says.

    I hope this video doesn't encourage folks to dry fire without air, but as the maker clearly states, "you don't want to do this". I think his purpose was to demonstrate how the rifle vents air if the bottle pressure is shot down below reg setting, something I had not considered. When I adjusted my RAW regulator, I cracked the nut attaching the reg/bottle adapter to vent the plenum air.  That process works the O ring, but I had rather  risk an O ring than damage to the valve.
