Depends where it's leaking from is it leaking AROUND the bolt or threw it put your finger in the breach, do you feel pressure build up?


Can't help you too much till then. even if you just replaced all the orings, they could still leak..

Btw you can look at my sig if you want it to be teched/cleaned/reoringed etc for 25 bucks.


• If air is leaking through the bolt tip, remove the bolt
kit from the marker and replace the #014 O-ring
located inside the tophat. Be sure the rear sail
bumper is a #111 and in good condition.
• If air is leaking from around the bolt, replace the
#017 located inside the cylinder and the front #020
on the outside of the cylinder.

I went through and replaced all the orings around the bolt and the leaking has stopped. But now the gun wont fire no matter how much you tune the LPR And HPR. Any clues?

Take your bolt out and make sure it's well lubed. do a "flick test" basically put the bolt in your hand and flick it, the bolt should come forward, if it doesn't one of the orings you replaced has too much resistance there for causing DRAG. ]




Step's I'd take..


1: Flick test your bolt. (if it's smooth relube it and put it back into the gun)

2: Change battery to a fresh name brand

3: Reset dwell to 21

4: reset LPR to 3 1/2 turns out

5: Reset HPR to 4 1/2 turns out

Try this and report back.
