eXTCy ASA Leak

So i just bought this gun new and went to put air in it to try it out, screwed in tank, then screwed in the ON/Off screw. after being fully tightened air was still leaking out the bottom of the ASA, The one closer to the on/off screw.

I knew it was not the tank due to me putting it into my other gun with no issues.

I took out the on/off screw and checked out the o-ring, seemed to be in tact with no scraped or scratches but i replaced it anyway, same problem. i'm not sure what to do at this point. looking at where the on/off screw goes in you can see where the threads are tapped and it might be that the tapped it too far thus the threads are creating small holes around the o-ring for air to escape

I got a game coming up next weekend and was hoping to have a new gun by then any insight would be greatly appreciated

Same thing happened to me last week. I had the tank screwed in all the way. I turned the on/off knob to what I thought was all the way on. It kept pissing air out of the two holes on the bottom of the asa. Repeated the process and same issue happened. Third time I turned the on/off on and then gave it another extra little turn. No more air coming out of the holes. It seems like the knob might be on all the way when it's not. That's my only issue with the gun so far.

Try backing the bottle out a half a turn. I have seen this with remote line recently. If that doesn't work, unscrew the bottle all the way out, drop an o-ring into the asa and screw your tank back in. It's an old school trick that worked when pin valve's on c02 tanks were too long.

both are found unneccesary as the leak is due to the connecting barb on the asa that leads to the reg. The steel cable is not reverse threaded and requires maitenence from a local airsmith or GOG themselves....i just want it fixed dont care if it is steel cable or macro but definantly not an easy fix. maybe GOG can help...

Smart Parts/GoG always had issues with leaky asa's. I would swap it out for a CP unit and macroline and be done with it once and for all. But thats just me

The issue is most likely the small oring on the on/off knob. Unscrew it from the asa and replace that oring. Putting a dab of dow 55 on it will help it seal better as well

remove asa before removal of steel braided line. clean out threads and apply red locktight. Reassemble in correct order. Problem solved so far
