Question ion air

question? my sister used my ion xe last week, and used co2, usually its compressed air being used on it. now it when i put the tank on the asa and turn it on it bleeds out from the asa. i checked the reg and its fine, nothing blocking it. Any suggestions? could co2 ruin the gun?

i doubt it ruined the gun.

first don't use co2 unless u have anti syphon.

second check the o-ring on your tank at the very top where it screws into the asa, most likely that oring is shot.

it bleeds from the asa. it seems like their is something blocking it preventing air going to the gun, because i tested my tank on my other gun and its fine. and nothing seems to block the reg.?

Take out the macro line fitting and wrap the threads in teflon tape, then screw the fitting back in. This will most likely have some positive effect, and may fix it altogether.

I wouldnt try to take the macroline fitting off of the asa unless you want to buy a new one... SP uses red loctite on their macroline fittings, unless you wanna heat it with a blowtorch then dont bother with it.
Take your macroline out of its fitting, make sure its smooth on the end, and push it into the fitting.

is it an on/off asa? if so, unscrew the knob out farther.

you could try to turn the reg up a little, bec/ if it is all the way off, it would not let air through. however, this should not cause a leak.

try screwing the tank in faster, and tighten it down tighter.


you never answered the question:

is it bleeding through the bleed hole? or from around the threads? or if it's an on/off, is it bleeding from the knob?

Actually, i have reused my macro fitting from my stock duckbill before.

Step 1. find an old wooden table.

Step 2. Drill holes and attach duckbill near end of table.

Step 3. Be a man.

Step 4. You should have a macro fitting in your hand now.

What he said...you should always have spare tank o-rings with you. I dont remember which one it is but there is an ion o-ring that is the same as your tank o-ring, so if you have a kit you will have one.
