I hope this helps

Empty the air tube by continuing to shoot the rifle with or without pellets being loaded until the rifle is completely empty..If you are not sure if it is empty continue to fire the rifle until you are certain it has no more air in the air tube.

This is the type of hose you need..Something that is thick walled and stiff....Cut a 2" piece length ways.

Roll it up as you see in the picture so that it will fit inside the air tube....
Image

Take out this screw that holds the barrel band to the barrel band anchor piece.....
Image

Stick a large screw driver or rod into the fill port with a protective coating on it to prevent damaging the fill port and unscrew the end cap counter clockwise...
Image

Place the rolled up piece of hose inside the air tube 1/3 to 1/2 the way down the tube....Then replace everything and refill air tube...Check for leaks and enjoy...

These things are great! The ping is gone, the loss of air isn't noticable and it doesn't move around in the tube! So simple yet so effective, I love it! :)

Thanks very much for that detailed response.

I am very, VERY fearful of messing around with compressed air, so how do I know its really empty? :oops:

Also, is it safe to have that inside there

Sorry I'm a bit of a :geek:

Also what is the ping noise? I have a weihrauch silencer on my T12, its quiet but it does make a sort of clangy noise, is this the Ping? I can't workout if its coming from the air tube or spring/bolt

Thanks

You should be able to tell by the sound of the rifle. A dull thungk..Place a
piece of tissue on over the end of the barrel when you think it is empty
and shoot the gun....Shoot until the tissue no long flies off the end of
the barrel. The ping you hear is the tube reverberating like a bell...
You could also be getting some noise from spring/bolt...I don't have a
fix for that yet..lol
Let me know if you hve any more questions...Glad to help

Me too.
I love this mod of yours mate. Thanks.
Gonna give it a go on Monday.
I read somewhere that it can damage the valve to dry fire it to empty.
Is that likely to be true?
If so is there another way to empty the cylinder?

Look for a large rubber handle grip or something along those lines....It needs to have a thick, stiff, wall...

You're welcome. I am glad so many are giving it a go...
Valve damage is possible but not probably in my opinion....I feel as though the valve has the
same amount of pressure on it whether there is a pellet in the breech or not...I would
not advise continually dry fireing the rifle but for the intense purpose of installing this
mod I think it is more than safe and would not be considered abuse......

It's in which was incredibly easy to do.

And it works PERFECTLY. Fantastic. Not a trace of a ping left.
Thanks again for this.
At first I wondered what all the fuss was about but that ping just seemed to get louder and louder. :)
All gone now. I get to hear the sound of the shot and hit now.

I would just add that when you put it in, push the outside part of the plastic. If you push the inner part it will go into a spiral which might not work so well.
And for a Cyclone cylinder I would say 1 1/2 inches is as big as you want to go. That would be the perfect size. I bought 32mm clear tube from the local hardware shop.
