Cock before you air it up.
Make sure your regulator is set high enough.

Either you need to increase your reg's output or back of your IVG a bit... maybe both... or you may need to spring tune... either way it'd be a good idea to sweetspot your gun.

EDIT ok so I turned up the hpr reg and it seemed to fix the leak down the barrel, thanks for the help guys. Also, it doesnt seem like my bolt is moving back far enough so the paintball will fit in to shoot??

Will it begin to leak down the barrel if the tank is low on air? I would imagine so.. Sooo Im also guessing that turning the hpr (bob long) clockwise would turn it up correct?

Did you mean back out the IVG a bit? Thanks

Yeah... I meant back out or back "off" (missed and f).

You can adjust how much your bolt clears the breech with your cocking rod.

Your gun may start to leak when your tank is low... I thing you're correct about the BL reg's adjustment... not positive though.

Turning in the reg on a bob long turns it up. Thats right.

You unscrew it. Cock the bolt back as far as it goes and adjust the cocking rod while looking into the feedneck until it just clears the breech. Theres threads inside the knobby part of it to adjust it
