its this one, i know the gold thing is suposed to come off, but it appears to be jammed in there. And i wont need to take it apart if it doesnt need a bleed hole.

Mine came off pretty easily, are you sure you were turning it anti-clockwise ;)

If you're filling from the chamber side, you will need to poke a hole in the piston/diaphragm for it to work.

So for multishot, no hole, just a spring?

if you're only going to connect a chamber to the "A" port, and only the blowgun to the "P" port, you need a hole for it to work at all, and a light spring for it to be semi auto.

If you're going to connect a main chamber to "P" and a smaller firing chamber to "A", along with the blowgun, then you don't need a hole, but you will get poorer performance and much less efficiency than if you used a three way valve.

ARG, srry but this is confusing, i am filling from the p side, and am using a semi auto blowgun mod. So i am filling from the pilot and will have a chamber at the A port. I got the spring part done, but dont know about the hole

In that case, you can leave your diaphragm intact.
