Need help with check valve in Hunting Master AR 6November 11 2017 at 8:00 PM

Does anyone know how to get the old check valve out of the tube it is in?
It appears to be frozen in place.

Could there still be some pressure in the tube? Sometimes the

strap wrenches or better, wooden blocks in a vise

If you are sure of the component assembly, a drilled and parted chunk of wood is a useful vise adjunct.
I'm sure you are dealing with "difficult", not frozen nor impossible.
In fact, if "frozen" is the best descriptor, try a heat gun on the junction. Any movement only aids dissassembly.
I have a pair of the AR6, one in .17, and one in .22. Great "six shooters"!. The fill check valve on both have needed frequent attention, though I have never had difficulty breaking down the reservoir cap.
As suggested. MAKE SURE THERE IS NO RESIDUAL PRESSURE! Drop the hammer, press it home, listen for the final fizz...

Many thanks, guys, I got it unstuck....question about quick connect with check valve
|November 14 2017, 8:58 AM |
I had to drive a small nail set into the pin of the check valve to free it, but it worked.
I am considering a quick connect with a check valve in it to replace the original check valve. The
original probe was replaced with a quick connect when I got the rifle.
Is there a problem with doing that?
