    I own a Hammerli 850 air magnum. The owner’s manual says that you cannot leave a CO2 cartridge in the gun because the pressure will destroy the seals. I am not concerned with removing the cartridge without getting burned. I know how to be careful enough to avoid this. But what I really want to verify is that the rifle’s seals can be damaged if the cartridge is left in after use. Thanks.

    Normally CO2 guns can be left charged indefinitely, but if the company made specific instructions to the contrary, I would follow them.
