PM8 Problem, Need help!

I have a pm8 and on the field sunday I was shooting it when I started having some drop off problems. It's like its not getting enough air. I think its the oring thats inside on the top hat, if I take it out, strech it lube it and put it back in it seems to be ok for a while but then does it again. How can I fix this problem?


You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that you didnt get the girl, or that you got a ticket on the way there ... your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it

I would say that o-ring is starting to swell.

Replace it for sure. It is the 017 size.

Also check the same size o-ring inside the beer can to see if it is also creating extra drag on the bolt.
