Hey Mike and TechPb community,

I had just come back from a day of play at a local field, shot a case through my ion and came home. When I can home to dry fire the air out of it, it was fine until the tank was empy, air was coming from the inside of the marker through the barrell. I posted this on pbnation and just got chirped and had the old "just throw it out and get a decent gun." Could everyone please help me out.


Thanks, Deverss

i dont think pb nation really helps anybody.

its probably just jammed forward

check if the bolt is pushed back all the way, if it isnt just push it back. their isnt enough air in it to push the bolt back all the way to close off the air supply

Your problem:
I can almost guarantee you that your issue is your o-ring.

If your gun is can still shoot but has a leak the air sealant isn't good so you need to check your o-rings and replace whichever ones needs.
Feel free to message me ;)

Cause: Un-lubed or worn o-ring.
Check the following o-rings.

Is the tank still empty or did you fill it and it still leaks? Because sometimes when your air is really low it leaks from the barrel until you fill the tank once again and you shouldn't have a problem.

Murph has answered it.

but also you said your tank was [almost] empty. That will do it too. When your tank reads bleow 250 psi, it will just vent out the barrel (because gauges just aren't that accurate).
