08 SLG Help: Leaking out of the safety purge button

My SLG is leaking out of the back bolt cap, coming from where the safety plunger is. I just changed the o-rings. When gassed up its like the safety purge button thing will not pop out, making it "purge" the air continuously. What could be the problem?

Your tank is not fully screwed in or your reg is too low.

Try screwing your tank all the way and then raising the reg, if that doesn't work check your manual on how to fine tune your ASA pin.
(you might also try using another tank)

Tcheno I think that could be the problem possibly. I was testing with CO2 just to see if I got the leak stopped so I wasn't trying to raise the reg pressure too high, but do I need to probly?

And yes I changed both leety itty bitty o-rings.

yes, you have to raise it in small increments or first raise it until it stops leaking then fine tune in small increments

Will only testing it for leaks with CO2 have any damage to anything? At most I may fire a couple shots is all. I have the CO2 running through a remote line first too.

CO2 can do harm just for the fact that it is a dirty gas, besides, the pressure with CO2 varies along with the weather which in turn may turn out to be very inconsistent.

Bottom line is, you should only use HPA!

Well I know I should. But my tank is empty and its leaking and I had CO2 tanks that were full. But Ill wait until I get my tank filled then.

I havn't tried with upping the reg pressure but I have a question about warranty cards. Do you send it in with the marker when you want to get it fixed or what?
