F8: Air coming from grip frame buttons,

Hello everyone,
I searched through the stickies for this issue but could not find it.

I have a Fusion F8, it worked fantastic this weekend, but i realized halfway through the day that I had blown the button cover (gel cover) off the gun. Luckily, it was stuck to my palm (no loss).
So I placed it just back on and shot the gun. I realized that a puff of air was coming from the within the frame a pushing this gel cover off the buttons on the trigger frame. The cover was only pushed off after every shot.

Is this normal or signs of a failing solenoid?

I had broken down the gun before gameday a lubed it with Dow 33 (shocker) and i use AKA gun oil at the start of every day.

Only upgrades on the gun is an old Boss bolt, cp reg, pexi-panel grips.

I was running 290 (+/- 8) fps at the woods ball field (they have a limit of 300 fps).

Thank you in advance for your help,
-Shoes

if its just a tiny puff of air then it is normal. its just the solenoid venting. if its a constant leak then you may want to think about servicing your solenoid

Trigger Finger, thank you for the quick reply. Yeah its just a small puff when i fire not a constant leak. I'll keep it under 280-285 fps not to risk it anymore.

I just got back into paintball this month after a 4 year sabbatical. So, I was just a little worried.

I'll check for a leak one more time before I buy an eigenram lol. I love this gun more than my Viking or Angels

Thanks again, -Shoes

You have some good markers in that list. I wouldn't worry about much as you can only shoot 12.5 anyway.

I've never noticed any puffs of air or anything from the gripframe, def. not normal. I would avoid any after market parts for the F8 like the plague, will ruin you gun.
