Here is what we have seen.. There are two types of leaks on Minis and Axes..
First Type - Slow and quiet
That would mean the Bolt Assembly anything from o-rings to the guide itself. If the bolt is not being pushed forward then the leak is in the poppet or the guide where the poppet is housed. However if it is being pushed forward then it could be an o-ring on the guide.
Try switching poppet’s face seals. Make sure to install it correctly. Then Close off the Velocity and add air if the leak is still there then it’s the Guide itself that is the issue..
Loud and Fast
The second part is going to be harder than the first due to there being more things that can cause it. However it can be solved with simple troubleshooting steps.
This could be anything for the REG to the Board.
And for most always have a GOOD battery in the marker, we suggest Duracell.
Dead batteries cause a lot of issues... Remember that the way that the marker is setup is you have the Power source, Main Board, Secondary Board, Solenoid. If let’s say that the Secondary board is damaged then it can cause the power to be lessened for the solenoid. And if the solenoid does not get the proper amount of power then it will cause a LOUD AND FAST LEAK.
Watch you’re Gauge on the REG don't let it go over 200 PSI.
Try resetting your Solenoid (instructions on this is located in the manual http://www.paintballsolutions.com/in...p/about/empire
Also try cleaning the solenoid.
Most people never thing about the air or the way they play but dirt can get into your tank which then goes into the marker. This dirt can cause issues which is why it is important for you to keep the marker cleaned and lubed.
Just wanted to explain that sorry if it seems to long winded..
