Vanguard demon Gasket

So i just bought a 2013ed avalanche demon from avalanche D2 team. Got the gun looked great put the air on and took a couple of shots. Air started coming from the grip frame. i changed all the orings that the manual said to do. now it must be the gasket oring or bad solenoid. Anyway not happy at all to get a gun not working and especially from a factory team member. So can someone get me the gasket oring?

i think a saw a little flaw on the gasket. I think the last person who ownerd it pinched it. The problem right now it gases up and after 2 shots it starts to leak from the frame

i bought it from Adam. i fixed the gasket and made sure it is fitted in better how it should. I changed all the manifold orings and changed the 021 orings, 017, bolt guide oirings. i will try and get a 019 oring to replace but dont think that will work. It feels that the bolt is tight with the 019 oring but well see. If that doesnt work it is a bad solenoid then. This is a big hassle for me at this time.

You should call that Adam guy and get some partial of your money back. Did you buy it through eBay? You can file a dispute through paypal or ebay.

going to go to local store to get a couple of orings to change out. If these last orings dont work 100% it is the sole noid. of by the way does the demon have a noticable click when when you shoot it with no air? Mine is very quiet when it clicks is that normal?

just replaced the 019 oring and still nothing. The guys at the paintball shot thought maybe the reg needs cleaning because it maybe over pressureizing the solenoid. I just took the reg apart and cleaned and check the orings and everything was fine. I put the gun back together and still the same problem. Now i' sure the solenoid is bad

Found the problem. After going through the whole gun decided to take apart the solenoid. i unscrewed the 2 screw that hold the solenoid together in the back of the solenoid. After it came apart in two i found that the rubber gasket in between is missing. In another word I need a new solenoid because no place sells just a gasket and it only comes with the solenoid. I will try and get in contact with the seller and have him send me a new solenoid. If not i will contact paypal to refund my money or a good some of money.

Are you talking about this rubber gasket? This is the rubber gasket that goes behind the solenoid and between the solenoid. You can buy this by itself for $10 & the other gasket for $5

No if you take the 2 back screws out from the back of the solenoid, it will split the solenoid in 2 pieces. in between the 2 parts should be a rubber gasket. That is the one missing. the first time i took the gun apart i found lots of lube on the solenoid and now i know where it came from. There was no gasket in between the solenoid and it was leaking out lube from between the solenoid.
