Leaky magazine!?

I've recently picked-up a used T8 and have an issue with one of the magazine:
When I put the CO2 cartridge and screw the pin, all the air escapes from the magazine. Not a slow leak, but the whole think empties within a sec. or two...

Any idea? I've tried with 3 cartridge with the same results. any advices?

Many thanks,

So it's been a month...sorry.

I've had the same problem. If the valve in the mag (that brass looking thing between the CO2 and the marker) is not properly lubed then it can shred the o-rings. I'd recommend looking at the o-rings 1st (if it only does this with one mag, if it does it with all mags then well...).

Thank for the comment. I've noticed the o'ring seemed fine, but the spring looked like it seen better days...

Could this be the reason? Regardless, I'll replace both and see what happens...
