New Eos Leaking!!!

This is my 3rd time using the Eos and its just started leaking on me tonight First I saw the psi gauge losing pressure and after turning it back up a couple of times I notice that something is wrong... While having my smoke away from all the noise inside I heard psssssh, it was coming from the power botton area... When I got back inside I took out the BOB and cleaned everything off and looked at the o rings can't really see any damages, relubed all the o-rings and put it back together.. The sound was gone! Went back in played a couple of games the marker seem like it was performing fine... When it was time to go home I noticed that after I shut off the asa on/off knob the left over air in the gun was slowly going away by itself!!! And the PSI gauge was going down slowly too!!

So I know my problem is still here... What should I do now? How come after I took it a part and relube it slowed the leak down... Is my leak even coming from the fire chamber area? The sound of the leak did reduce by a lot after i cleaned and relube, I have to put the marker close to my ears to hear it now... Is there even a O ring kit out for the EOS yet?

THanks.

No oring kit out yet. Also, the reg on it has a built in relief valive. If you turn off the air, it may vent out of there. Kind of hard to tell you how to fix a leak if you don't know where it is. More than likely, if there is a leak, it as the hoses on the inside. Usually the back hose.

Is it true that the ion/epi o ring kit is the same as the EOs? And is it even normal for a brand new game to leak after only using it for 3 times?

Just give it some time to break in and you'll be fine. Be sure you know what problems could happen and how to fix them so if they do indeed happen, you know what to do.

Your best bet is to call a tech in our tech department at 1-800-992-2147. They can help you find the leak and offer suggestions on how to repair the leak.
