there is a o-ring that is rashed or damaged, identify it and replace it. remove and inspect all if necessary.

friend the only way it would leak down the barrel would be having a wrong sized or damaged o-ring in there... if the noid is bad maybe it could leak down the barrel too but I'm not sure.

Take notice on the 14x2 o-rings like the manual says, don't replace them for 015 o-rings, these are thinner and will not seal well when used in place of 14x2.

I would replace the 14x2 o-ring on the propshaft as well the #17 in the front of the can.

If you are 100% sure that you replaced all orings with the correct size then you may have a cracked prop shaft. It happened to me. You will need to get a hold of NickyT of Planet Eclipse: nick.t@planeteclipse.com tell him of your problem. If this is the case he should take care of you.

The third o-ring it could be is the front #020 o-ring around the outside of the can.

An alternative explanation would be if any of the surfaces that the three mentioned o-rings seals against were scratched, this would cause the same leak as a damaged o-ring, but no amount of o-ring changes would stop the leak.

well...all leaks generally start with an oring just starting to leak at one point...as previously stated, try the 14x2 on the prop and the inner and outer can (furthest forward on the can) and you should be good to go. I doubt it is a faulty/cracked prop shaft as (a) this is rare and (b) you would hear really strange noises when shooting.

Make sure the channels of the oring grooves have lube in them. Sometimes that will lead to small leaks that kind of go away over time...if there is a gap somewhere that might not have lube filling it...
