hello guys
I just bought the co2 gun and I shot about some time and when I ran out of bullets i just wanted to empty the gas tank so it won't stay loaded because I don't have any more bullets, so I dry shot about 8 times and when it was empty the little gas that was left started to leak a little from the muzzle. Is that normal? I could put a new gas tank inside but I do not have any bullets and it would be pointless because I would need to dry shot it again to empty it. Is that leakage a problem or is that normal.

I haven’t actually shot my HDR, but I would hazard a guess that this is fine.
As the CO2 has got low, there’s less pressure coming though so the action hasn’t sealed and the ‘residue’ leaked away

With CO2 pistols I have always dry fired off as much as possible when finished before ejecting. With my first Delta 68 if you ejected while there was CO2 you risked losing the 12 grams O ring as it froze against the ejecting 12 gram

The HDR is many years later and it’s design places the 12 gram facing down in the grip

I would go ahead as you have done:
Shoot as normal
Dry fire as much as you can to clear as much CO2 as possible
Unscrew and eject the used 12 gram

Thank you very much for your reply, the clerk told me that this gun has some kind of gas pin that allows you to empty the gas tank if one does not want to shot.

That should be the pin where you would normally have a hammer on a revolver.

When the pistol is gassed up the pin will pop out, and I think if you press it then it will discharge
