new axe leaks from grip

hey nation

so i bought a new axe and when i went to air it up for the first time it had a massive leak from the grip area. now i'm not very familiar with the marker as it is my first one and i've read the owner's manual's trouble shooting section and read the axe sticky and haven't come up with much. any help would be appreciated and much thanks.

Ans will sxrew in yhat department, probably just the air tube oring. Take the grip off to make it easier to track the exact location. Make sure you flip the lever slowly. But ur local shop should have any extra rings you need.

I had a similar issue with mine when I originally purchased it. A little tinkering with the air tube fixed it. Upon taking the grips off I noticed it just needed a half turn in on the tube to fit correctly.

Try taking your grips off with the tank screwed in and flip the level. If it leaks flip it back off and adjust the air tube a 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Flip the lever again and see if it still leaks. Both ends thread so be sure to try adjusting both. This fixed mine, hopefully it fixes yours.


Edit: when you have the grips off and air up the gun you should be able to tell if it's leaking from the top or bottom of the tube. Start off adjusting the tube from the end it is leaking.
