You don't need to decant them, unless your working / stripping the cylinder down or going to post the cylinder to someone, it's just to de pressurise it ..

You only need to decant if you go on a plane, or put it in the post, other than that. I've got the first cylinder that came out with the bayonet filler, and that's never been off the gun since I bought it, and not had any problems, the air I put in my gun is dry from my divers bottle, cant comment about stirrup pumps.

Nice one si, i think the a&m cylinders are great but could be better if the preasure guage was clearer to read like the hw ones

yeah the hw gauge is one of the best without a doubt, I should were glasses but can't be arsed!

the fx ones aren't bad but air arms are terrible!

not had a go with me mates since he changed it but I know he's loving the weight/ balance improvement

You can get a lightweight cylinder from Carl (airtech) or Phil ( ratworks ) which you fit the ends from your original cylinder
