Clone 5 Back Cap

I think I have read this happening to other clone 5 owners, but cant seem to find the resolution to the problem. I am noticing there is a visible gap between the body of the gun and the back cap when I gas up the marker. I have taken the back cap off and tightened down the screw holding the back cap in place, but still cant fix the issue. Am I missing something? anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

I also have the visible thin line, but have 0 negatives as a result of it. Its still sealed back there and seems to happen when under pressure. Was this a problem on your end? Leaks or something of the sort?

How much of a gap? I haven't noticed with mine to be honest, and I would imagine with the pressure there may be a slight gap but I haven't noticed. My vanquish 2.0 as much as I loved it, had a big gap between the body and back cap when aired up, but it still worked great.

The gap isnt huge, but noticeable, its maybe an 1/8 of an inch wide. It didnt do this until I took apart the drive train to lube everything up. It only happens when it is under pressure, no leaks from it though.

I'll take a picture of mine tonight. Never thought it to be a problem though.

I do the same, Its not a problem, just expect things to go together right when these things cost as much as they do.

This is the gap i am seeing, Not sure if this is just because the latch screw is not set right or if the back cap hole for the screw is overbored a little.
