lube the threads with the oil that you got with the gun.

then when you go to remove the tank unscrew it 1- 1.5 turns, then shoot the gun until it runs out of gas. If it keeps firing then turn the system little more and keep firing. this will allow you to remove the tank without damaging the o-ring all the time.

Isnt dangous to have the tank a little bit Unscrewed when you're firing? some people died because they were shooting when they had a loose tank.

Thats because the regulator unscrewed from the air tank and shot around like a bottle rocket at 200 mph. It wouldnt be dangerous since the pin isnt depressed that much and there still enough pressure to hold the tank in place its 100% safe.
