Was wondering if low pressure in a tank (less than 500) can be a factor for a leak in a gun?

Not enough pressure can cause leaks, but not 500psi.

Alright. My tank is literally on the first line before the space where it says 0. Not sure how much is in there. Guess my reg is too open or too closed. Don't know the fps because I don't have any paintballs or a chrono. I'll have to wait

If a tank is running low it may not provide enough pressure to hold the marker's valve closed.  You're probably closer to 100-150psi in the tank. What marker do you have?

It's a gun I'm selling so I'm not stressing it. I knew my tank was low I was just cleaning and lubing it to make sure it cycled fine. I heard a very very very quiet leak and I'm figuring it's the low pressure. I'll know after I fill my tank tomorrow

Come again?  Why would a gun you're selling not be a causes for concern?

Yea that was kinda stupid to say lol I'm running on 4-5 hours of sleep.........actually the gun leaking was pissing me off because I always like selling gear in good condition with no problems for new owners and I clean all my stuff so they don't have issues. But regardless I fixed the gun already so it wasn't the tank, it was pretty much the lube I was using. It was too thin. And the gun is the demon, forgot to answer that before.
