Spyder Electra DX Air Leak

I have an older spyder electra and it has an air leak coming out from one of the pressure holes on the regulator. It is leaking from the hole closest to the hose. I have checked all the o rings in the marker and the co2 tank and they are all good. What else can it be, please help if you have an idea.

Looking at Orings doesn't prove if they're alright or not. Sounds like the regulator piston Oring is bonk.

Try re-greasing (not re-oiling_) it with some DOW33 or Synthetic (or bicycle) grease, then try airing it up again.


If the leak persists, try to replace that oring.

This is the marker you have correct?



It doesnt really have a regulator. Its just a fore grip/expansion chamber. Its possible that one of the "09" orings around the vertical adapter (if not at the top of the expansion chamber) has went bad. Look at the marker's breakdown here:

Yes that's the gun I have. It is leaking from part 2535 which is under the trigger handle. That piece has two pressure holes underneath and it is leaking from there. I'll replace the "09" o-rings and see what happens.

Oh that's just the ASA. That's almost assuredly nothing more than a bad o-ring. Those aren't the 09 o-rings though. That's a different one

Hey that's why I'm on the new player help thread... Lol

I have taken the gun apart and pretty much changed every o-ring. I'll replace the 3 or 4 I haven't touched and see it is one of those.

Some of the Electra DX markers had regulators. It is built into the ASA/CA adaptor.

Is you marker blue? If so you probably have a reg built into the ASA. You will need to take it apart and replace the small oring inside. I don't remember how it opens. Try posting a close up picture of your ASA if you can.

It was a bad o-ring with the regulator inside the ASA.. The gun works perfect now...

Thanks a lot for all your help...

props on getting it together. Most people just give the gun bad creds and stop playing at your level


welcome to pbnation, by the way.
