Unhappy b2k2 leaking

I just bought a B2K2. I took out the cylinder/hammer assembly from the rear of the gun to lubricate it. when I replaced it and gassed it up I heard a leak down the barrel. The manual says it is the valve seal, but I never even touched the valve or valve seal. What went wrong???

Thanks,
Ryan

leak

air up the marker and push down on the bolt pin, and see if the leak gets louder if so you may have messed up a o-ring in the hammer assembly this can also make the leak sound like its coming out of the barrel when it's actually not.............

WEll take a look, if you see any knicks or stufff like that, replace it. Did you have enough grease on your ram when you put it in?
Is your lpr too high?

Yes there was plenty of grease on the cylinder and no the lpr was not too high. I turned it down a little and it didnt have enough pressure to recock.

What else could be wroong?


Thanks,
Ryan

1. Take out your bolt.
2. Unscrew your front LPR all the way so you can take it out.
3. put 2 drops of oil in there, NO MORE!
4. Put the LPR back on and adjust it(just look at the ramshaft from above to see if it goes back instead of using the pull pin)
5. fire it about 30 times

The oil will not hurt anything, and I have gotten leaks like this before and fixed them with the method above

leak

put your ear up to the barrel with the marker de-gassed and see if you hear the same thing, sometimes its your mind playing tricks and your actually hearing the ocean just like if you stuck your ear to a sea shell.....

Check the top of your hose, mine used to leek because my steel mesh hose was too rigid and pushed out, causing extra stress on the very top of it where it would leak unless i pulled it back some. I just got a new hose and repositioned my tank/reg, havent had the problem since.

If it leaks out the barrel, then its not his hose to the gun.

valve seal

take out your valve seal and inspect it for any damage? it may be damaged or dryed out and allowing air to pass through, if it looks fine oil it up and re-install it.........
