Went and played with my sniper last weekend and had a weird issue going on. First three shots would just lob out and then it felt like the gun would get to it's normal pressure.  Checked the pressure on the reg and it was sitting right at 200. Stripped it down to replace o-rings and lube. Fixed that issue andwas able to play another game. Then, massive leak out the barrel when I go to air on next game. Brand new orings and the reg is good. Figured it was a bad cup-seal.  Got a new cup-seal in today and it's still leaking like crazy....

 

And help would be much appreciated. I wanted to get out this weekend =(

 

Thanks

I feel like that wouldn't do it since it leaks still when I cock it

turn up your reg presure to about 300-350psi.  the added pressure should help keep the valve closed.  Also check on here about sweetspotting your reg.  There are a couple tutorals.
