have you tried slowly unscrewing the knob to find a position where it gasses up and doesn't leak?

i did to my 08, and i only had to do that once, the thing stopped leaking ever since.

you have to understand all-the-way-turned-on is not always the best position for an on/off.

oh you did? bring the gun back and ask for an exchange if you can, and bring your tank so they can test the new gun in front of you to show it doesn't leak before giving it to you.

hmm. try lubing the o ring there, also make sure its the right size, thats happened to me before what happens when you pressurize a gun the o ring gets smashed and expands like a disc of silly puddy if you can imagine that? you squeeze it and it comes out the sides.

Checks the o-ring in the ASA. Take off the knob and pull out the pin. Unscrew the brass fitting in the ASA. There's a o-ring in there. It's CO2 safe, but it needs to be perfect and oiled other wise it'll leak out the relief hole. If you're using CO2, get some spares, the CO2 blasts that just like a tank o-ring.

My 08 leaked when I got it to. All you have to do is unscrew the asa knob. You will see a brass screw in the hole the knob came out of. Unscrew that and there will be a little o-ring. Make sure it is 100% clean and oil the he!! out of it. Drop it back in and it won't leak for a long time. If it starts to do it again later on, repeat the previously mentioned steps.

I've had an issue where I had to adjust the piece inside the asa, making sure it was screwed in all of the way. Once I played with it, the asa stopped leaking.
