2K5: Leak Down Barrel

Gun has an air leak down the barrel. Check the items below and reference the manual as needed.

Issue:
Air Pressures:
  • Zero out your HPR and LPR regs, then listen for any leaks. Regs are zeroed out by turning the adjustment screw out till it's flush with the bottom/outside of the reg. If there are no leaks, use the following steps for the HPR and LPR.

    • HPR: Slowly increase your HPR (turn inwards) pressure. If it starts leaking, use the steps below to check your cup seal and Ram Sleeve o-rings.

    • LPR: Slowly increase your LPR between 70-80psi. If it starts leaking, replace the poppet o-ring and front ram o-ring as described below.

  • Remove your bolt and confirm the hole is facing down. While you have the bolt out, inspect the o-rings for damage and replace if needed. Lube with a drop of Tri-Flow oil on each.

    • #18 - Bolt o-rings:  015 (x4)

Ram:
  • With the bolt out, remove the Ram Cap and the Ram. Inspect the the Ram cap o-ring as well as the front and rear Ram o-rings for damage and replace if needed. Lube with a small amount of Dow55. Do not lubricate the Ram itself.
