top hat oring help

My friends matirix keeps out blowing the top hat oring and leaking profusely out the bolt. He just got the new black bolt from the matrix center and it still does it. He has the shocktech front reg could that be causing it?

oring problems

Just because it's leaking doesn't mean the oring is no good. It may in fact be that he's just not lubing it properly. Lube it generously!

no the O ring is actually being blown out of its little groove inside of the top hat

Check for a burr inside the back plug. That could be snagging and pulling off the o-ring when the bolt cycles.

oring

Ah......if it's blowing the oring off then you probably have to much pressure going into the gun for the oring to hold it back. keep your operating pressure turned down....if it's already down then most likely you have a creeping reg. If you are using either the centerflag reg, or the cloned centerflag reg then I highly suggest tossing it since they're more trouble then they're worth. They break down all the time, and constantly creep.
the other possibility is he's replacing the oring with one that's close to the same size.....but not quite. Tell him to double check and make sure the orings are the proper size.

What kinda of Bolt kit do you have? The only blot kit I have heard of that is black is the stock one. Make sure you are using the right size o-ring. There was a change in the tophat o-ring sizes from stock to the blue, red and silver bolt kits. Another ?, is he using the square o-rings inside the tophat that aardvarkdirect sells? If so, that may be the problem, being that the square
o-rings create 2 seals this might be causing the problem (Too much friction, and the square rings actually "trip" over the other seal and cause it to pull the oring out of position). If you would like you can hit me on AIM or ICQ.

Hope this helps.

Paul
