Question G4 problem

Alright I the ASA on heard a pop and air began dumping out of the barrel looked inside and saw that the o-ring right behind the feedneck was gone. I replaced it and then pop and the o-ring was gone again. Any help? I only put about 1000 shots through it reset it to factory settings changed backcap o-ring turned down fps and turned back up slowly all to no avail.

I'm not sure but i would guess that the pressure is to high but you said you lowered it so I'm not sure. Make sure that there are no scratches or gouge marks in the groove or around the groove were the o-ring goes.

No scratches or gouges. Would bad lube make o-rings swell and then pop out. I am completely lost right now. It is 2 days old

Did you remove the lube that came on it and replace it? That would be the first thing I would do and try it then. The stock lube is not good.

Lube could be an issue but lube that swells the orings would usually make them press into the groove better but it may cause an issue but it is less likely.

My second guess would be that the orings are too small for the grooves were they fit. If they were to small then the air would wrap around then then push them towards the bolt and they could then blow out. Do you have an oring kit for the g4? if so check and find one of the right size that fits a little less snug on the bolt so that it will press into the groove better.

Also make sure that the back cap is tightened all the way. I once didn't tighten it all the way (it was about three or so turns out) and what happened was the bolt touched the oring but only half way so it blew out the oring when i gassed it up.
