PIN Valve

Hello,

I have a 12oz Extreme Rage Tank. Pin Valve.

I had it charged for the first time and it won't release the gas.
I pressed down the pin with a screw driver and got a little his here and there but nothing consistent.

Any ideas on what's wrong?

It takes quite a bit of force to depress the valve fully and open it. Try pressing a little harder?

I bottomed it out. If it needs to go further than I pushed it in than the guns receiver pin wouldn't be long enough to do the job. I bought it on Ebay. Already contacted them to swap it out.

Thanks for the reply.

the valve sealing puck is damaged and will not let air out, very common problem and ask for a new one from the seller as there is no way to fix this easily
