leak

If the leak is actually coming from one of the exhaust holes in the noid, then it's possible you just need to replace your rammer oring. When air bypasses this oring, it vents out the other side of the noid. This is the most likely explanation since it seals up fine after you take a shot. I find this happens more if you only use oil in your rammer since it tends to "flow" to whichever side you tip your gun on when it's not in use. That leaves a dry sport or two until you fire. I use a gentle coating of grease on my gun and it seems to work well for me.

If the leak is coming from between the noid and the gun body, then you may have an over pressurized gasket, debris somewhere under the gasket or a bad gasket. Pop the noid off and clean/lube the gasket.

If neither of those work let me know.

Settings are just as mentioned in a past thread for everything you reccommened.

Thanks, Kyle
Also, make sure you set your HPR properly depending on whether you're running a high or low pressure tank. Do that first, then set your LPR.

Make sure you're not seriously overboring. I know the stock .693 barrel is sexy but it can waste a lot of air if your paint is really small(which most paint these days is).

Change the orings Shootnpoo said, it may be possible you have an internal leak somewhere.

Check the pointer on your tank gage. It should be in the middle of the black zone when the tank is empty. If it's below that point then your tank is reading lower(by that same amount) than it really is, if it's higher than your tank is reading higher(by that same amount) than the pressure actually is. Doesn't sound like much but being off by a few hundred psi makes a difference.

Yes, like all rechargeable batteries they will slowly die with time. I'm pretty sure it will happen even if you unplug it. The good news is, it only takes half an hour or so to get a full charge and then it will last another month.

Sounds like you pulled your bolt pin all the way out and the inner spring and detent popped out. You're not supposed to pull the pin all the way out, it's supposed to stay attached to the bolt.

Just unscrew the screw at the back of the bolt, put the the detent in, then the spring, then tighten the screw back on. That detent is what locks the pin in place. You'll be fine if you din't lose anything lol.

A leak from that area is usually caused by the small oring the poppet moves back and forth in(I forget the size), or a bad rammer oring causing air to leak out of the back of the noid.

Pull your valve out(check the tech videos to see how) and replace the small inner oring in the valve that the poppet runs through. Lube the poppet up with grease then reassemble making sure not to get grease on the face of the cup seal. If that doesn't help then try to replace your rammer oring. You should be good to go after that.

When sliding the valve in the exhaust port of the valve (the open hole) goes upwards twords the bolt. The closed hole fades the bottom
so the black valve retainer holds the valve in place.

When re installing the detent and spring
it goes as such.

Bolt, spring,detent, bolt pin.
When you have the spring and detent inplace slide bolt pin into the bolt.
Than using an allen key depress the detent ad spring I wards so you can the. Push down the bolt pin sliding out the Allen key and the bolt pin will fall intoplace.

If you still do not understand I am avail on skype if you need more detailed instructions.

Sounds like you have either the valve upside down or you have the LPR body to far back.

The lpr body pin should go into te middle hole of the body. Te will holdthe LPR into place.

Use a Flat Blade screwdriver to Help you unscrew the Back cap.
Then you can use plyers to get it out from their.

Noid and Ram Cap

Ok, So brand new Vanguard Creed, poped in tank and the solonoid is leaking, I replaced most of the O-rings and lower the velocity. I get to the ram cap, and try opening it. It was jammed in preety tight and it got stripped. Now i cant fit any size keys in it. Must be having a bad day FML!
