that happens to my phuzzard. if I pump it hard enough, it will vent out a little. It also is sprung waaaaaay too weak in the valve spring. I still haven't gotten to ordering a spring kit.

What spring is in there? Why do you say it is too weak?

So, I know how a nelson valved gun works all except one detail i would like to have explained to me.

why does it not cock when de-gassed? It it because there's no pressure on the valve to give resistance so the hammer cant catch the bolt? If that's true then theoretically couldn't we pump it back so hard it leaks?

explain please...

In most standard tunings on factory Nelson's the main spring has a higher rate then the valve spring. So to put it simply the main spring can overpower the valve spring. Now when the marker is charged (gassed up) the combination of the valve spring plus the force on the cup seal applied by the air/Co2 is enough to keep the main spring from over powering the valve spring. Now when the marker isn't charged and the main spring can cause the valve to open by pushing the hammer back into the power-tube. And there lays the problem. When the hammer moves back in most cases it is moving back further then what the bolt can so the sear can't catch.

Here is a animated picture of the Nelson valve system.


As for leaking, yes it is possible. But most won't simply because the grooves/slots for the connecting rod on the bolt aren't long enough. If they were longer then you could cock the marker without it being charged, but you could also force the valve one any time. Which isn't good.
