How does one remove the valve pin from an
AT-44 air tube? I ordered a spare tube and want
To swap in the non pal valvepin I have.

I have the brass end off and all I see is white plastic on the end?
Is this just a pressure fit that needs to be pushed out?

That's what I thought. Played with it a bit and already scratched it up a bit with no luck? It's pretty tight

You can use a hacksaw blade to Cut a good notch in the white plug, near to the base(just above the Brass Valve) and using a good Knife/Screwdriver to pry it up and off.
The white plug is very slippery and as you wrote, hard to get a grip on.
So that is the reason to cut a notch with a HackSaw blade, Must be deep enough.
GoodLuck..

If I remember correctly, youtube.com has a few vids on the valve stem removal.

Very simple!

A pair of vise grips lightly squeezing the white valve retaining cap, lightly turn as you pull. Once it's out the spring will follow then the calve stem can be pushed out.

Vice-grips?.... are you related to K_G ?.... IMO that's a great way to make a mess of the plastic spring seat.... Cut the slots at the base with a hacksaw blade so you can pry it out carefully....

Thanks Guys! I was at the lake when I posted so I decied to leavie it untill I get home tonight. Did a google search and saw a guy who drilled a small hole through it so he could put what looked like a small allen key through it and then just a twist andpull. Looked like very neat and tidy way of doing it. I also didnt have my glasses at the lake so asking here was easier than searching on my Iphone LOL

Vise grips may not be the best way but if you be careful and pay attention, it's amazing what a light pull with a bit of rotation will do. To each their own as to removal but definitely mod the insert to aid in future removal.

Well I did the hacksaw trick. But it turns out that my new spare tank
Came with a non pal valve. Guess I should have asked lol
Oh well now I have a spare. Going to the warehouse tonight to see how the Pneuma shoots at low power. The bonus of owning a large building ;) even if it's only 50 yards
