Gladiator bottle loose

Two types known, the "DA" or "Double Air" and the "PA" or "Pump Action" (a.k.a. FX Exterminator). Lots of air (500cc minimum), and the same biathlon style sidelever action as the Cutlas. Also known as Logun Gladi8tor.

Just rotate it, screw it in a bit. Then if the cheekrest/stock is in the wrong position, undo the set screw and reposition it to fit.
The verminator is the same action and setup, and it is designed to be undone like that.

It could be the grub screw that holds the 'rear thread part' (very technical) to the rifle. If it rotates approx 30 degrees left and right it might be this. There is a grub screw that runs through the 'rear thread part' into a locating hole on the back of the rifle block. With people screwing and unscrewing the rear bottle this can become widened to an oval shape. Very had to fix unless you use some liquid metal.
