    As seen here:

    I recently acquired one but I cant seem to fill it with gas. Does anyone know anything about this style of 40mm airsoft grenade?
    I have searched the web but from what I can gather this shell design predates Mosquito Mold grenades. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried setting it?

    Most shells require you to push the firing button all the way in to seat the valve like so:

    (custom tool I had made just for that purpose)

    If that does not work, you may be missing the ball bearings inside the cartrige.

    This is a good video on how to repair/maintain a typical shell:

    The Angs grenade have no ball bearings, it has a plunger like device that creates a seal with O rings. I will take pics and upload them later.

    I've been having problems locating any information on it due to the fact that this type of shell was made in the early 1990's.
