My old stingray has a minor leak, help please!

So i was messing around with the old stingray 1 Ive had sitting in my closet for 8 years and i noticed it has a minor leak coming out of the front of the bolt. I can hear it if i put my ear to the feed neck or the down where the barrel usually is.

If i cover the front of the bolt with my finger it kinda plugs the leak somewhat and also if i shoot it a few times sometimes it will stop all together.

There is some damage to the bolt and a couple other questionable areas on the internals so i took some pics for some expert advice, any help is appreciated! oh and first thing i did was replace the front o ring and even though it was the same size that was on it before it looks considerably smaller than it needs to be, its a tank o ring fyi.

It appears someone over the years before i had it Teflon taped a few of the parts together so im wondering how to fix it or if i shouldnt even take them back apart.

Teflon tape holding the tube the bolt goes on to into the body.

Teflon tape holding the tube that transfers air from the ASA, to the ASA.

It's my guess that you'll want parts nos. 9 and 28 (power tube o-ring, transfer tube o-ring)

That damage on the bolt is normal--the ball detent is steel and damages the bolt. You could replace the ball detent with some sort of nylon bead or plastic ball bearing. That's what most people do. Try smallparts.com for the bearing. Also, that is not the proper bolt o-ring. The bolt o-ring is available on the page i gave you.

Thank you so much, i know the gun sucks but it was my first one (had it for 8 years) and it has some sentimental value. I like screwing around with it in the woods on occasion. I have some kind of 12 inch ported barrel for it lol never had the stock one.

No problem. They're not bad guns at all, and I still use mine on occasion.

The damage to the bolt usually isn't a problem, but in your case it looks like it's starting to form a sharp lip on the forward edge of the bolt that contacts the paintball. You might want to grind or sand that down until it's nice and smooth again.

Also, for some reason Stingrays like automatic transmission fluid. Back in the WARPIG days, Bill Mills and "Sid" used to recommend putting a few drops of ATF down the ASA, screwing the tank on, and running that through the valve. It probably causes the cupseal to swell and/or fills in some of the pores that could leak. You might want to try that first and see if it fixes the down-the-barrel leak.
