Exclamation Help, Protium

Okay, I take my JT Protium out for its first taste of action and in the first game it splatters like crazy. I sit out the next round and take it apart to clean it, I LEFT THE CO2 in while doing so, yes i know, im retarted, i didn't realize it until i was done. I go back to play the next round and the thing shoots the paintballs out about 10 feet each time, anyone know what might be my problem?

Could be the striker o-ring. That is what happened to mine.

if it is the striker oring, then it's on the striker. that's the heavy black cylinder that's in the lower tube of your protium.

first of all, i'd go back and check all of your markers orings. if any need replacing, do it to see if that solves the problem. it's possible that the co2 damaged them when you took it apart.

if not, i'd just check to see if your bolt's in rightside up. same thing happened with a mongoose at the field the other day, someone just had the bolt in upside down so the balls were only launching due to the bolts force on them

well new problem, I took out the bolt and it was upside down, so I take it outside to make sure that it was okay now, screw in the CO2 and the CO2 starts leaking out of the volumizer. UGH! So now, I take it back into the house, unscrew the volumizer and here is how it is set up, I have the volumizer metal piece, then a spring which has a large opening on the metal, and a smaller hole of the spring on a ninja=star looking thing. The ninja star is hooked onto something that looks like a small screwdriver and then the screwdriver goes into a little whole in the back. WHAT HAVE I DONE NOW?!
