hello guys,when your not using your cartridges how do you keep them?
I think it's best to store them in a disassembled state. the reasoning being the rubber "O" ring is better kept in an uncompressed state until your are going to assemble it to use.What are your thoughts on this?
Regards Kevin.

hey kevin welcome to the forum

me personally....... i keep all my carts in the assembled state (not primed i might add).

i keep them stored away in a metal box (rather like a secure money box with the key that you can get in most shops) ..... its foam lined and all my carts are in there ..... and those that i have that came in boxes..........are in their boxes within this case.

i also have a seperate metal container which houses all my caps

Gary, the metal box for your caps, does it have "desicant" packages or a de-humidifier in it to absorb any moisture? I am sure that since the caps are sensitive to moisture they might absorb enough to mis-fire frequently.

I too like to keep the cartridges together as they have so many parts to contend with so, it is a good idea to clean/dry them and assemble them after use as well as store them in a nice air-tight container. The cartridges are so expensive that it's a good idea to take care of them so they will last longe as well as find the when you need them.
