Questions!

NOTE: Questions are in RED
I just got home from vacation and I found out my tank came and so needless to say I got some air, a gauge and a nipple cover at a local shop. It was pretty cool cause I didn't buy my stuff from there and he gave me a discount. $2 off the $20 gauge(i was in a rush to set up my gun) and he also didn't charge me for air after he saw that I didn't buy my tank from him cause of the way he acted towards me cause I bought my stuff online. I guess he was trying to say sorry and that he didn't mean to be rude. Thats my guess but my dad was also with me. Anyway, I got home. Put in my air and it started to leak from the bottom of glad reg. I was using a 45* elbow on my drop and a 90* on my glad, then I figured it may have been a defect in the 90* so I got my other 45* and it worked. Then I set my hp and lp regs.
One question, When my lp reg is high, sometimes I hear a leaking noise from what seams to be the solenoid. I turned it down and It's working good now. What could be the problem? I hope to get a lower gauge later to see the exact pressure I have. I was using a 1500psi gauge to set this up. Well I fized the macro line connections and finally got it to shoot air. Some times I would shoot just air before I tweaked my regs and the Bolt pin would pop out? Whats the cause? Well I fixed that and I walked with my dad to a big lot with trees that was supposed to become a new school down my street but was deamed a bad location anyway we walked in and shot it. It was awesome. I was breaking some paint but it was in the barrel. I dont think I had the pieces together tight enuff and I was shooting almost year old paint. As I got down to about 10 left I shot a 3rnd burst and then put it back on semi auto. I pulled the tirgger really fast and man it was like full auto. I love it. I have about 1400psi left on my tank. about 1000psi came out when I was fixing the macro line. Well I am just so happy I got everything I need and I have it all working so well. I might want a new bolt. I can see how that comes in to play now. Thanks.

If you turn your reg up too high, you will hear leaking from inside the gun. That's normal. It's basically an indication that the pressure is too high. I keep my regs around 250 (HP) and 85 (LP). That seems to work well for me, keeping velocity under 280fps.

Not sure about your bolt pin popping out. That's a new one for me. If you don't already have the new manual, I highly recommend downloading it and reading it over. Great info:

Good luck with it.

The bolt pin sounds like it is getting worn down. What I mean by that is that is might be getting rounded on the end. Call Bob get a new pin.

well after I adjusted the regs the bolt pin popping out has stopped. Even on full auto. Its working great now just that I hear a loud ping noise. How ca I correct the loud ping noise? Also what does an o-ring in the ASA adapter on my drop help out with? Does that help with the noise at all? Should I remove o-rings from my bolt?
I got the new manual a while back. Haven't read it end to end. Looked it over mostly.
