    Joe , where did you buy your Talon SS from ? . If you bought your SS from Air Force Guns you should have had
    the spanner wrench included , if not , then tell them they forgot to include the spanner wrench , which they
    will send to you free of charge .

    You might want to give TAG Tony a call or PM him.
    Dyotat100 / Doug is a member here on TAG that’s an expert with AF guns too.

    Make sure u dump all air ……….
    Not sure how to remove the brass insert but to remove the valve you can use a steel rod, some heat the neck of the bottle if it’s hard to loosen.

    hum, after removing/pulling out the Top Hat I would think u could use a large flat blade screw driver to remove the brass insert ?
    But then again I never had to remove or change out the valve O-ring on my AF guns ……. so what do I know ?

    Here’s the Valve Parts Locations hope that helps yah.

    I bought it used many years ago when they first started producing them. I believe he sent me everything so I will have to go look in the original box. I spoke to AF already…I ordered the o ring from them but she said I needed to find a spinner wrench. Didn’t offer to sell me one…only offered to service the tank for labor and shipping cost

    I see ……….. I never seen a vintage AFG in person …….. very cool !

    I’d try and ask Tony or Doug …….

    Adjustable Spanner Wrench are sold on Amazon, u’d might want to check/search there, just not sure which one will fit your application ?

    Also, if u can find 2 bit the size that fits the holes perfectly u can use a table vise.
    Fit the ends of the bits into the holes on the valve and hold them in place while clamping the bits into the vise tightly, then turn the bottle to loosen.

    Great idea about using the vise! I seem to remember a wrench that came with the gun as Birdman mentioned. I have to go get the box out of my attic but your approach is the current Plan B!

    Do you have a welder? Finish making your wrench by cutting the nubs of and silver soldering them or welding them. Then you always have a wrench. Made one two years ago for an earlier TalonSS I have.

    Yes u can make one ……….. but how often will u’ll be using it ?

    Had no idea that the Top Hat stem can’t be removed/pulled out of the vintage AF before removing the valve.

    If u have a drill press, use an old box wrench, quarter inch maybe or something of the size needed.
    The hard parts is getting the right spacing at that perfect distance needed … drilling the 2 holes right though.
    Cut off 2 lengths of rod …….. keeping them at minimum length such that the tool lies flat on the valve face.
    Glue them using JB weld epoxy ………..

    I know this is an older thread but what I used when I had a talon ss was a wrench for golf cleats.
