ok i used my empire sniper one time and then the next time i air it up i hear a very small leak down the barrel, i start taking it apart take everything out replace and relube every o ring put it all back together and i still have the small leak. i also noticed that when i was taking out the vale screw for the cup seal ( ithink thats what its called) it was covered in blue threadlocker and seemed to me that it was backed out a bit..

if anyone can help me get rid of this leak it would be much appreciated....

That cup seal screw has to be in the right alignment (not sure what it is, but its not supposed screwed all the way in). I read somewhere to note where that screw position is prior to taking it out so you can but it back in the same spot... also the cup seal should be dry, wipe off any lube on it

stupid question. Did you cock it before you aired it up?
