Details details details. Always give info so there can be better answers presented to you. Just a guess here but it sounds like you may air up your marker too fast. Try slowi g down the rate in which you flip the RAPS lever. The instant pressurization can cause the o-ring to blow.

Or maybe it's just that your tanks output pressure is too high... Can't tell without the details.

Sorry it's a g4. Thought I posted it. I air it up shoot a pod and degas it. Air it up again and blows the oring. Using standard pressure tank.

The likely culprit is that the vent hole on top of the RAPS is being blocked. If you move the ASA back or forward a tiny bit, the hole would be clear. If you are talking a G5, could be the tank output pressure. Details matter.

I think I might have figured it out. When I move the lever to air it up I can hear the oring catching on the inside and shredding it. I just got this marker for my son and new to the dp markers. Looking through the manual it shows that this oring should be an 007. Is this wrong?

Yes, I believe that is correct. However, it should also be a 90 duro in hardness.

Stumped!! I am using 007/90 orings. I have switched it to 006 using dow55 hoping to swell them a little, but not working. I can air it up one time and if I try it a second it continues to shred the oring until it is no good anymore. Looks like I may be buying a new asa. Any recommendations? Haha

I seem to recall an old regular around here had the same issue and the solution that ended up working was using the double o-ringed bonnet on a Ninja tank reg. I don't remember the reason why though. I'll have to check into it.

I take it moving the RAPS didn't help.

I have seen torn up asa orings on a couple FXs as well and was told it was the blocked vent.

I have moved the RAPS to three different positions with no luck. Still went through 7 orings. It almost feels like when it is being aired up there is too much pressure being sent to the asa, but I have used the same tank on a G3 in the past with no problems. I am assuming you don't need an low pressure tank with a g4?

No, you don't. A HP output tank should be fine to use on a G4.

Did you check the vent for blockage like mentioned? Maybe just strip and rebuild the asa if you didn't yet.

We have nothing like that around here. I have had to learn to tech all of my guns and have just learned that there is a point when you throw the towel in and mark it up to product error. Not saying it's a bad product at all, just learned that over time parts crap out.

Could always try a different o-ring material. How about a -007 polyurethane?

Just to inform anyone that has this problem in the future. It appears that my solenoid had little flakes of metal in it. I took the solenoid apart, cleaned it out and re-lubed it and solved the problem.

Little flakes of metal? That's no good. Any idea where that came from?

I have no idea. Joys of buying a used marker. You never know what you will find. Works great now though!!
