    Hi Bob,
    If it is a Steyr cylinder the date on it is the date of manufacture, Steyr say they have a 10 year life so yours has plenty of time left,
    as far as I know they are to small to be retested, certainly not by the idest test centers anyway and the recommendation is to replace them

    If it says 2017, that’s the year it was produced, the month should also be on there also. It’s fine until 2027 ... for disciplines that require a cylinder is in date e.g. ISSF 10m Air.
    Currently for FT there are no specific requirement for rifle air cylinders regarding dates and tests

    The date you have mentioned is the manufacturing date and not end of use date, as the cylinders don't have one, and unlike a dive cylinder do not need periodic testing.

    Although Steyr recommendations is to change the cylinders every 10yrs (well they would do wouldn't they) your cylinder will last you for many many year's, unless you do something really stupid to it like decided to reshape it with a hammer:confused: there's very little that will ever go wrong with it.

    It’s fine for FT. Yes manufactured July 2007.
    And the 17 refers to the 10yr old date

    Hi Bob,
    Yes it was manufactured July 2007 and runs for ten years from this date, There is no expiry date on the cylinders and as Conor and Mike have said Steyr say they have a ten year life but the uk has no legislation for cylinders smaller than 500cc so you could use it after this date

    I bought a new cylinder as the one on mine was 9 years old and me being a pansy boy didn’t want to run the risk of anything going pop. I know not likely but I also wanted a quick fill
