Only finger tight. The valve is not designed to pierce the cartridge via torque on the end cap. Just tight enough to where it requires finer resistance is all. Over doing the tightness will cause premature failure of the valve's end seal. The valve stem has a protruding spike that pierces cartridge upon the action cycling.

And Phil's right about a couple shots to fully pierce. I always cock and shoot 3 times to get a good gas flow, then load it....

Best I've found is finger tight. Fire the unloaded pistol to be sure the powerlet is pierced. Then back off until it leaks, tighten until no hissing. This preserves the end seal. Works for all other airguns that seal on the powerlet end. Thanks to Mac-1 for the tip. Dave
