It is where part of the cylinder is cut in, allowing a part on the frame to match up. Use a search engine for Rebated Cylinder, and you'll get plenty of pictures. "Cut in" means that the diameter of the cylinder is reduced at some part normally by "cutting in" with a lathe. In some black powder pistols, especially early colt models, the diameter of the cylinder is less at the nipple end than it is at the end closest to the breach of the barrel.

Can you keep CO2 in your bb gun?

Not really. It will leak out eventually. Besides by leaving a charged C02 cylinder in the pistol keeps pressure on the seal and this may damage it over time. I always take the cylinder out of the pistol when I am finished shooting. No matter how much C02 is left int the cylinder. It doesn't cost that much to put a new Cylinder in the pistol when I want to use it again. Besides leaving it in the pistol will eventually reform the seal. I want it to return to a normal shape between shooting sessions. Is it cheaper to buy a new cylinder or have the pistol repaired because the seal is warped.
