problem with new etek

Ok well I bought my etek on friday and when I bought it I also bought a new 68/45 draxus comp air tank. When I went the dude set it all up for me to test and it was great. Today when I went to try I opened the valve half when and then put the tank on like the manual says. When I close the valve the little dot on the side of the reg releases all the air....what am I doing wrong?

short: putting comp air on my gun is not working..know it works since someone did it corrctly once before

I have the barrel pointing left and on the reg about half way up there is a little hole. When I screw in the oops knob all the air goes out that hole.

Grab your reg and make sure its screwed in tight enough, if that dont work then it might be an oring inside the reg, fire the gun when your air is leaking and it will stop.

ok...try this.

1.take reg completly off the gun, macroline out of it 2.
2.take reg fully apart, shoud be in 3 pieces when done.
3.lube the o-ring on the bar when pulled out of the reg
4.lube the reg stack, little washer things on bar. do not turn upside down because the washers will go everywhere!!!
5. reassemble and then try it.

DONT mix the washers up, just make sure they dont go everwhere. reassemble they way you took everything off, its easy. just ask if u need something.
