So far, not so good.

What things should I check if co2 is leaking out of the asa?
It isn't the tank, I had tested that on anoter marker.
The leak is coming out of the pin hole on the underside of the adapter.

Stop complaining and learn how to actually fix the really small problem a leaky asa is? Geez. People are way harsh on this kind of thing. Anyone ever hear of "teflon" tape or loctite?

Im not being harsh, Im sorry my wording is sounding harsh, I will redo my original post.
Do I remove my asa from the hose and wrap teflon around the threads of the hose?

My sincere apologies.

It's alright, but I'm tired of people complaining of small problems, then they blow them out of preportion. Take the fitting and wrap a layer or two of teflon tape around it. Make sure to wrap it around so it doesn't fall off when you screw the fitting in.

Ok. Thank you. I'll try it now and post my results. Hopefully tomorrow I can get a video of it shooting.

If the air is reaching the relief hole, then the air is getting past the o-ring.

I didn't think it was the threads that were supposed to be responsible for the airtight seal, but instead the o-ring on the tank..

Did you check the o-ring on the tank?

Also, did you screw the tank completely in?

If air is comming from the small relief hole on the bottom of the ASA, NOT from a hose connection to the ASA, then it is your tank O-ring that is bad. Just because it works in another marker doesn't mean it's OK- seems like your ASA inner diameter is slightly larger than the other marker you tested on- thus the leak. Replace the tank O-ring, make sure the tank is screwed on tight, inspect the inside of the ASA for any debris that may be keeping the tank from scewing on all the way.

Go easy on him...he does have "kid" in his username. The last 2 posts were good advice. Cheap pin valves and cheap asa's dont always work well together. A good on/off is a great investment...and Christmas is just around the corner!

I changed the oring, and the leak was still there.
I'm going to wait tomorrow to look into it further. Thanks for all of the advice guys.

Maybe so, but I don't judge based on screen names.

Is it leaking before it is fully screwed in?(as posted before)

As soon as the pin is pushed in from the asa, the leak occurs. If the cylindar is screwed in all of the way, the leak is very small until firing 4 times or so, then the larger leak occurs. I'm going to test it out tomorrow hopefully with a friends hpa tank.

I think you should take it in to your local store and let them take a look at bot the gun and the tank.

Weird. Normally the leak is due to a bad tank oring. When you screw the tank onto the gun, always make sure that the gun is pointed up. That just ensures you dont throw liquid CO2 at that oring before the tank is screwed all the way on. Also, you can put on a little Sl33k onto the oring of the tank as well. Worst case scenario, the pin on your tank is a tad too long. You can file off a little bit and that will help as well.

That was for a different reason. You should air up every gun on CO2 like that.

Well, I have seen a lot of chinese valves on the market that have too long of pins. If the pin clears the top of the valve, then it needs to be filed down. If you do file it down, make sure you blow all the brass filings out so that it does not go in your gun.

instead of trying to file down the tanks pin.. it is also just alot more safe to put a tank oring in the bottom of the ASA, then screw your tank in and it will create a gap between the pin of the asa and tank which will require you to screw the tank in further.. past the relief hole and sealing the air.


And for recommend teflon tape.. that is a no-no with any gun that has a soleniod in it..Let a piece of that tape run threw the air line/regulator.. then you'll have alot more of stupid threads.. so.. use loc-tite, Blue is fine.
