Well, did that and it still leaked... Not saying they need servicing all the time either...this gun is a collectors gun and looks like it hasn't seen the field in its long 3 years of life; and I know the last owner hasn't serviced those o-rings in probably a year, but most likely they haven't been lubed in way longer than that. I put air to a gun that has been sitting in a closet for at least a year and a o-ring got a small leak...that its lol...that says plenty about the quaility of these guns don't worry. Also it was a 30 sec fix cause it was so easy to take out; nice when design/maintenance work together. Just thought it is interesting that it had a size 18 on it, which I used and it fit/sealed right up...while you said use a 15...that's all I was bringing up. I pride myself in knowing guns I own and just saying Im impressed that I was able to fix this gun that I just put my hands on in a matter of minutes, though I hope a B.S. in ME and working on a wide range of markers would give me a slight advantage lol.
