Hey guys, I have a little problem with a leak on my Marker (Valken Proton)

So, I connected my HPA Tank, which happened to have about 100-200PSI, The pressure was very low; to the point where I could press down and let air out of the tank with my hand quite easily.

Anyways, I connected the tank and I heard a small leak from the area where the bolt was. I then disconnected the tank and connected a CO2 Tank, I took one shot with the co2 tank and the bolt cycled without any leaks.

So, was the fact that the HPA Tank had next to no air in it the cause of the small leak?

possibly but do not run CO2 on your proton continuously.

My guess would be the lack of air pressure. When you get a chance fill your tank and try again.

fuck yolo

If you gas up with a nearly empty tank, this can happen. It also occurs if your reg is set very low.
