Hi, my girlfriends Azodin Blitz Evo is leaking air and I'm suspecting the Loctite on the cup seal. The website suggests 271 red, but from what I read this creates a permanent seal that takes like 600lb of pressure to remove. Is this what I need? I would imagine if the cup seal gets damaged I'd like to be able to screw it off lol.

Where is it leaking from? When you take the valve stem/cup seal out of the body, are they separated at all, or still screwed together?

 

Also, you'll want the blue loctite.

They're still screwed together.

Then the parts coming loose is probably not the issue. Where is the leak coming from?

Down the barrel and feedneck. I replaced the front oring on the valve but i haven't got the gun put back together yet to test it. If it's no the cup seal or the valve o ring what could it be?

It could very well still be the cup seal, or the problem could be fixed by the valve o-ring change. But unscrewing threads isn't the problem if you take out the part and they're still screwed together.
