Steyr cylinders non manometer type

Postby leadhead » Thu Jan 01, 2015 9:58 am

I have a couple of older style Steyr pistol cylinders. The ones with the pop out indicator on the nose. Before the manometer type.
Would like to self service them, to use as backups. Could anyone offer any help or info on such a project please.

I recently had mine done by Harry, £75 for two which seems very reasonable. They didn't just change seals though, they replaced the whole block in the connecting end. Maybe it's more than just seals ?

Can you post a picture of the pop-out indicator, please? I have a Steyr "CO2 Match" pistol (pre LP1) from 1991 and these non-manometer cylinders have nothing on the "nose."

The pop out pressure indicator at the end of the tank was only used on the air cylinders, it was never used on the Co2 versions like yours as it would have been effectively useless. Likewise only the air tanks had a manometer (pressure gauge) on the end - the Co2 tanks maintain full pressure until all the liquid Co2 converts to gas hence no need for a gauge.
