Loosing Air?

**I'm french canadien so watch out my english**

SO, can we call this loosing air? I duno, I bought a Ion last week, tried it, worked perfectly, but I broke the oring randomly w.e its ok...

I changed the o-ring and left the marker there (that was like 2days ago)

I wanted to try the marker for fun and when I "plugged" in my tank, it started to loose air by the little dot under the On/Off valve, but when I "unscrew" the valve, it stopped to loose air but of course, I couldn't shoot. I tried to put a new o-ring *wich i tought it was the prob* and it worked but I was now loosing air from the feedneck and the barrel. Also, the fireing bot went under the feedneck (there were no paintballs). After that I tought it was because the fact that I didn't put paintballs in it so I dunno, I tried to fix but now I'm out of air.

So, I was wondering if you guys could help me.

Waiting your answers.
Simon.

Ok, so which o-ring did you originally change? By on/off valve..you mean where you screw your tank into? And Im not sure what your saying about your bolt under the feedneck.

I change de O-ring on the tank

Yes for the on/off valve = where i screw my tank into

And there was like that thing under the feedneck, i had to put it back by pressing it by removing the barrel and pushing that thing *im not sure its the fireing bolt, thats how i called it but not sure*

Sounds like more oring probs or maybe you didn't relube because that is a fairly new ion and it hasn't been broken in yet, so relube to make the orings seal. Only use Dow33/sleek to lube.

Coming from where the blue arrow is is caused by the tank o-ring. You should be able to get tank specific o-rings from any PB shop. They will actually be called tank o-rings.
