Old PGP Problem - 12g Leak out handle

Got a PGP, it looks old, definately an older model. I tried to shoot it as soon as i got it.

I put a 12g in, scerwed it down, shot once and it popped, but the air all rushed out the front frame screw. a pressure release?

I opened it up - It looks like an o-ring if there was one in the 12g chamber is missing/broken/shredded.



not sure exactly what the problem is - any help? anyone know where to find a diagram/manual for a pgp?

Thanks.

EDIT: actually, i think i just need a 12g seal

Yeah, 12g seal will probably do it. When you screw the 12g knob in, it pushes the powerlet against a seal on the valve (looks something like the regulator seat on an Automag, I think). If that seal's broken, CO2 doesn't stay in and it'll leak out the front of that bottom tube. As for the diagram...

thanks for the links -- not good, i need a valve tool

EDIT: if anyone has a valve tool they aren't using, or know a place to get one cheap, let me know.
