Hey guys, over the weekend i purchased a new crossfire 68/45 from my local field. I had the tank filled before i left. The next day after a good clean and lube, i aired up the gun to dry

fire a few shots. Couple shots in, the tank went pshhhhhhhhh all over the place and i noticed it came from one of the burst disks. Upon further inspection it appears to be the low

pressure burst disk (not clearly labeled but theres inscriptions on the fittings). My questions are, Is that a normal once in a while occurance? Did i hurt it by dry firing? Should I call

crossfire or bring it back to the field? Any help is appreciated.

it happens from time to time with tanks, but it isnt common for a brand new tank to do that. it may have been a dud burst disk? Dry firing wouldnt hurt the tank, allthough it isnt the best for any marker from what ive heard. But i would bring the tank to the field and get the disk replaced and if it happens again after a short amount of time then id send the tank back in to crossfire.

and i would try to have the field replace the burst disk at their expense. It probably isnt their fault but itll save you a few bucks lol

when a burst disk goes it usually means that there is something wrong with the reg. although it could just be a burst disk you should rebuild the reg to be safe.

contact crossfire and i am sure they will help you out.
