A1 leak

Hello once again fellow Angel enthusiests,
I aired up my recently purchased A1 (lnib on the outside anyways) and decoverd a leak. it felt like it was mostly coming from directly above the trigger but theres a slight chance its freom the breach, but more then likly above the trigger. it did not seem like it was coming from inbetween the body and grip frame, but it mite be.

Now before yall tell me to check the stickys i did and used the leak diagnostic. but i would like some educated opinions on where it could be coming from so i dont have to tear apart only to find out the leak wasnt from the lpr housing.

my other issue is the roto breach bounces alot. i take it i tighten both screws? or just one side.

thanks once again.

Best way to get it out (once you've removed the noid and LPR retaining pin) is to remove the front plug and push it out with something flexible and non-marring. Macroline apparently works very well.

Yep, definitely sounds like LPR. O-ring or dental pick works pretty good for LPR bodies. Worth a shot before you gank the entire chamber plug out.

I happened to have some (long) old stripped allen wrenches but no other suitable picks. I just clipped part of the end off, smoothed it down, and wrapped a bit of electrical tape around the end so it wouldn't scratch anything. It doesn't really provide the best grip, but it definately works pretty well as a makeshift pick.

If you want to tighten the screws, be sure to do so evenly. If one screw is tightened more than the other, it will pull the breech block a little bit forward/back and could create a lot of resistance and wear when you open it. If this happens, you will definately be able to tell- the breech will be much harder to open.

I was talking about the small threaded plug to access the valve stem not the big plug.
