    So I picked up a second hand Taipan Veteran. It came with the EDMU pre installed. As posted previously, it’s not working properly. If I were to change it out to a Wika….
    How would I do this? 
    Where can I get de-gassing tools? 

    Also, does anyone know of aftermarket stocks for them? Maybe something in Walnut. 

    Thanks in advance.

    I’d give a call to Charlie Frear at georgiaairguns.net

    I bought my Taipan Mutant Shorty in .22 from him and he was awesome to deal with. I’m not sure he carries the Taipan’s anymore but he tuned mine before shipping and can probably steer you in the right direction as to de-gasing the gun and removing the gauge pressure collar. He may also have the Wika gauges. I know edgunusa.com carries the Wika gauges for $50 a piece. Hope this helps.

    Here is video on degassing Taipan.

    Make sure gun is de-cocked and insert something sturdy to push the valve.

    Also noticed DonnyFl has speed dialer adjuster for Taipan that will allow you to adjust power externally.

Yeah, I know Charlie well. Got my Cricket from him. I will call him as I was hoping to DIY if I could, o/w will take it to him. I’m about 1.5 hours from his shop. & you are correct, he doesn’t sell them anymore, o/w would have got it from him. I actually bought a Wika, straight from Europe, $40. Thanks for the help.

Thank you. I may go ahead and get the speed dialer. If I take it to Charlie, I will have him install it.

    That’s a neat vid on the degas, I did get the speed dialer for my mutant, works great like all DonnyFL products

    Had a thought. So, I removed the front collar and unscrewed the gauge ever so slowly until I heard it leaking. Let it all bleed out. Took it off and replaced it with a Wika I had on hand. Seems to be working great so far. Thanks for all advice.
