How loose is too loose? ;O

So I decided to go through my shocker and happened to knick one of my 017 orings on my can. Pulled out my oringmonkey rebuild that I hadn't used yet and replaced it. The bolt slid right through the oring like it wasn't even there. Switched some around but couldn't find any with a decent amount of resistance. I am pretty sure I had 90 duros in there and now have 70s. I don't have any air to see if it seals, but what's the general rule on fitting orings?

I am running the aluminum eigen and the rear bolt sleeves 017 fits with very slight resistance now running orings that had no resistance in the can. Just seems to be some weird oring tolerance thing on a stock HE can I suppose?

does it contact the bolt all the way around?

If its not leaking and shooting fine your good. If its shooting poorly it could be due to pneumatic lockout from an oring that's to loose and causing an internal leak.

But generally when I fit orings I try to look into the future. Orings break in and loosen up as you use the gun so when I fit them I make it so you can put the bolt in the can and it will slidethrough not with gravity but with the flick of the wrist. Same goes for the sleeve and guide.

Yessir. I was worried most about contact with the can but there is none and I can't forcibly make it happen.

I wish I had some air to test it. And all my new orings are now coming out of that oringmonkey kit and they are all really loose in the can. Like fall through due to gravity loose. I guess ill have to bring my ring kit to the field and test it out. I was just so shocked by the tolerance difference between the can and the sleeve.

if it contacts all the way around you SHOULD be good. but the only real way to be sure is to air it up.

But in all seriousness if it seals it seals. Thats the only real way to gauge it you have to get a fill and test.
