Elbow To Macro Question

Hey, I'm new to PBNation so please correct me if there is somewhere else to post this but this was where i figured it went. I just put a new elbow on my gun connecting to the ASA because I totally trashed the other one trying to replace my ASA and everyone said all I had to do was just push the macro into the new elbo and then give it a tug to make sure it didnt come out. Well, I did all that but now I have a leak right around the top ring part that lets it swivel. Is there anything I can do?

You *might* need a new piece of macro line, but it's unlikely. Make sure the end of the macroline is cut at a right angle and is not jagged. Use of a razor to cut the macro is suggested.

You need enough pizza and Diet Coke to stick in your refrigerator, a cheap PC to work on, and the dedication to go through with it. We slept on floors. We waded across rivers. -John Carmack

So how do I get the macro outta the elbow then? can I just pull it out or will that ruin the elbow?

When you tug on the macroline, there's a 'ring' on the elbow that sort of pulls-out / swivels with the macroline; that's what's keeping the macroline in. You need to hold that ring down while you're tugging on the macroline and it should pop out easy.
