Puff of air?

Hurm, so just checking up on this, it doesn't honestly seem to affect my efficiency much, but perhaps it's the reason why even with a boss bolt I can't go any lower than 160 psi.

I did a full tear down after a tourney to clean everything (got shot right in the hand, paint everywhere -__- ). Upon taking out the tube assembly, I cleaned and swapped o-rings. It seems, which now that i think of it, there was always a puff of air from the grips, that a puff of air comes from the bottom of the Solenoid.

Is this normal? Doesn't seem to affect my efficiency much, if at all as I can shoot a highcap rotor and 7 pods (so about 9 pods) and have about 500 psi left on a 68/45, but was wondering if this was affecting how low I can drop my OP.

It doesn't seem to leak, only occurs when a shot takes place.

Yep, it's normal for the solenoid to vent out the bottom with each shot.

Hence why my team is called "up in smoke", before the ball hits you, there is a little puff of smoke.
